We ended going to El Jarro since it is less 10 minutes from us ... when we arrived there was only a family of 3 sitting ... within a few minutes of sitting down 2 more couples followed ... along with 3 people placing take out orders ... the place was jumping ... LOL ... the chips and salsa were good ... we started with an order of guacamole and my husband had the ceviche ... both were very good ... my daughter had the grilled chicken quesadilla which came stuffed with lettuce and tomato the tortilla were grilled and were crispy and not soggy like must places serve it ... she gave it a two thumbs up ... I had the chicken enchiladas with green sauce served with rice and black beans ... that was really yummy!! ... my husband had the goat and salted/cured beef tacos along with a squash blossom taco (in a corn shell) ... everything was fresh and yummy ... I am glad we found this place (thanks to people here) ... I am sure I passed the place before but, would have never thought to venture in ... we will be back ... the only thing missing was a cold beer to wash it all down ...
