Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 June 2016

It generally gets harder and harder to find good Mexican food when on the road. This restaurant has good food. The restaurant style is festive, with lots of color. The menu is big and there are a lot of options. The chips and salsa are better than most Mexican Restaurants I've been to in the last year. The fajitas are tender and well seasoned. The enchiladas are fairly mild, with the best being the queso and the beef. The rice and beans are mild. The staff is fast and efficient. The restaurant was packed and the wait times were reasonable. Prices were decent. If traveling through Monroe again. I'd definitely stop here again.

Waitress makes you wait a bit to have you seated down.. when you are the only table/people. The food was pretty good except it had hard pieces of corn on the rice. The food was missing flavor.

Nice Mexican atmosphere and friendly staff. Again the portions are on the large side. Unless you're a big eater share an Entree.

Mexican is my favorite food and I loved El Jarrito! Fresh guacamole made at our table - can't beat that. Large portions cooked just right. I had the chicken flautas and they were excellent. We enjoyed our leftovers the next day :). The service was good and the over-the-top decor makes for a festive environment. I will visit again the next time I'm in town.
