Charlottesville seems focused on good, cheap Mexican spots. When one surveys a menu at higher than those price points, one is bound to ask, "Is this going to be worth it?" El Jaripeo has a menu that goes beyond the typical Tex-Mex fare in town, and the food is good and worth trying. Everything tasted fresh and the server was appropriately attentive. The space itself is large and impersonal, and the music was way too loud considering it was lunch time and relatively empty. Still, it's worth checking out if you want to try a different menu . . . and you have a bit more cash than what you're used to expecting.
