“its been one of the inland empires best for years!”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Upon driving up to this small strip mall nestled between claremont ,pomona and laverne, you will find this medium sized restaurant, which appears to be a typical little hole in the wall. The decor is not extravagant, nor by any means flashy, but upon opening the door and entering you are greeted by the amazing smell of fresh hot mexican food, that fills the dining area, and immediately makes your mouth begin to water. the seating is first come first serve so find a table and sit down quickly before someone else does. The servers greet you with a warm and welcoming smile then bring you warm chips and salsa to your table. the menu is plain and simple to read and understand. i personally recommend the green enchiladas with shredded beef, or the medium nachos with shredded beef, or the chille relleno burrito,and a or hard shredded beef taco. any one of those choices will bring a smile to your face. the food is hot, hearty and homestyle comforting. wash it down with either a beer or their homeade limeaide.
eat here once and you'll be a regular for sure.

“Best Mexican Food Aywhere”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

If you want real Mexican food and not that over sauced, badly cooked stuff most Mexican restaurants serve, then go to Los Jarritos. Their burritos enchilada style are great, nothing tops their chiles rellenos and Sunday morning is my favorite time to have their huevos rancheros. This is a basic restaurant, not fancy, but just the best Mexican food you can find anywhere.

“One of my all time favorites”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

If you love REAL, honest Mexican food, Los Jarritos should be on the top of your list. While the cafeteria atmosphere may not be the best, the food more than makes up for it. The carnitas are to die for! Don't miss this place if you are traveling through the Pomona area.

“Delicious Food”
Reviewed 17 April 2012

Best chili rellenos ever! Only mexican restaurant that I find that hits the spot when I am in the mood for authentic mexican food. Very casual, you can get your own drinks from the refridgerator. I've been going there for over 25 years and have not found better food. Service is also casual, but hey, I'd serve myself if I had to! Did I mention the prices are great!
