I was there with my son who lives in Sonora. I was glad to go because the El Jardin in Manteca is the best Mexican restaurant in town. The food in Sonora was not particularly good. I had shrimp fajitas and my son had a...More

Average Mexican food - nothing special or tasty. We used to come here more when we lived in the area - it was pretty good back then but now the food is just plain & blah - especially for the price.

We really enjoyed our visit to El Jardin. The food was spectacular (try anything with the ranchero sauce)! I’d also suggest the Cadillac Margarita, they make it with fresh lime! The guacamole and salsa are also a must!
