We were visiting in Turlock and went to have lunch and dinner several times and the food, service was the best!!, especially Manny and Gerry, what a professional guys, they were on the top of everything, from food to drinks.
Although I've never been to the other El Jardin restaurants, I find it hard to believe this is worst! The food is excellent and I was surprised to find it was a (small) chain. Their salsa is not exceptional but is very tasty, and the chips are always hot AND best of all, no rancid greasy taste. The staff is courteous and professional and the service is great. We live 25 miles from Turlock, so every time we go shopping there we make sure to eat at El Jardin. We have yet to have a bad experience!!
El Jardin is the best Mexican food in the valley, but this one in Turlock is the worst of the entire chain! The sauces are not as good, and the margaritas are made from wine, not tequilla! Also the place is in a weird location, I sat outside and I was right next to someone's house and an alley with some guy reving up his Harley. Please try the El Jardin in Sonora or Manteca (especially this one!), they are SOOO much better!!
Large portion sizes, good atmosphere and great prices make this one of the best places to dine in turlock. I enjoy the small cozy quiet atmosphere, it's a good place to bring a date, or family. And the food is always served piping hot. A true local favorite.
I was very please and excited about the food and service that was provided by the El Jardin that I will recommend This Family type restaurant to all my friends and family .I you dont know where to eat, El Jardin is great and neat.......Enjoy and God bless you...
