“We really like El Jardin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

We have visited El Jardin in Twaine Hart, and Manteca and we like them both. The prices are reasonable and the food was good.

“Yummy!!”

A pleasant surprise. A bit crowded but the food was great and well prepared. We enjoyed with friends and were impressed by the service and the owner's attention to detail. Try it you'll like it...

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2012

This place is NOT a Taco Bell. Selection and food is fantistic. Servers do a great job making sure you are a happy camper and have everything you need.

“Quality Mexican Food and Good Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012 via mobile

My wife, daughter and I had a nice meal. The chicken fajitas with tortillas, rice and beans had really good flavor ($15), the kids cheese quesadilla ($5) with fries (instead of rice and beans) and the chicken enchiladas ($11) with rice and beans were also both good. The margarita was big and tasty ($5.50). The staff was great about refilling our water glasses and the chips and salsas (all good). The watch out is that the wait can be long. We had no wait just after 7pm, but while eating we could see the wait area fill up. Some parties left rather than wait. Our service was great, but it probably did not hurt that we were near the kitchen. The staff passed our table a lot and were good at checking on us. The service was outstanding, but everything else was just good. (above avg fajitas and salsa)

“Best Mexican Food ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

We spent the night in Manteca on the way to Yosemite & El Jardin was recommended by the hotel we were staying in. Margaritas were perfect & all our meals were wonderful. I had the tamales, my husband had enchiladas & my daughter had a burrito - which she said was the best she'd ever had. Service was great & the atmosphere very attractive. Wish we had a restaurant like this on the East Coast!
