El Jarro is spectacular, reports anli. It’s all about freshness. Chicken taquitos are eye opening, with excellent corn tortillas and well-seasoned filling. They’re accompanied by good, freshly made guacamole. El Jarro’s taco salad is the best version she’s had. It, too, is superbly fresh, with a shell that tastes like it was fried seconds ago, and perfectly proportioned lettuce, tomatoes, beef, and cheese. SamuelA.L. says whenever he’s in Lafayette, he has to go to El Jarro. His favorite: their sole Oaxacan specialty, Oaxacan-style tortas. They’re filling, cheap, and very tasty. His favorite: the Cancun torta.
