Detail for El Jardin Cafe : Restaurant, Mexican
This place has been a staple for me for a good 13 years now. I start going before I lived in Chicago, went all the time while I lived in Chicago, and have been going for the 10 years I've been living in St. Louis (I still travel to Chicago a lot on business). I was born and raised on Mexican food and after all these years I still have yet to find a place that makes a better shredded beef or chicken burrito. Try their Burrito Grande Especial, topped with melted cheese and an excellent ranchero-type sauce. For a smaller portion try the Burrito Chaquito Especial. I've also been told their fish tacos are excellent and my friend says the enchiladas potosinas are incredible. I know they look awesome. Their chips are always awesome and their salsa hotter than most places that claim to have 'hot' sauce and it is awesome to boot. I've also yet to find a place that makes a stronger standard version of a margarita than these guys. 2 of them will
put a huge smile on your face and warm you up on a winter night when you have to leave! I can't recommend this place enough. Make sure you go to the cafe that's right under the El, not the bigger place 1 block south. I went there once. I never went back. 'nuff said. - Barro, 01/27/2006
