“A diamond in the rough”

El Jarro Mexican Cafe
Ranked #22 of 81 Restaurants in Lafayette
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 December 2017


Excellent food just not that comfortable. This is one of those restaurants that could benefit greatly from having a more comfortable setting. It's very small making it difficult to have a private conversation - The food, however, is worth giving up some privacy. I eat lunch at this restaurant at least three times a month.

This is my go-to place for take-out burritos. Go for the Carnitas with everything. You will not be disappointed.

This is a tiny little place but the food and service is excellent. Traditional food and the sauces are outstanding. Chips are always fresh and hot..

El Jarro looks like a "hole in the wall" but is way better than that. You might walk past it, but once inside it is packed. There is a reason: the food is good and service is also. We have gone several times with friends and always enjoy our meal. The menu is inventive, too.

If you want chips, salsa, and traditional Mexican food, this is it. Everything is good..nothing really stands out as exceptional.
