El Jarrito in Katy, Tx. has the best fajitas I've ever tasted. The steak fajitas are flavorful, and cooked perfectly. The tortilla is, of course, home made, and the margaritas are...


tried margaritas, below par. Food average.

Chicken and seafood is all very good but their beef stands out. The fajitas are perfect; but you can also buy a fajita steak covered with habanero suace and cheese and grilled onions. Tone it down a bit and get one with jalapenos or just get the plain old fajitas. Anyway you like it this is some of the best fajitas Ive ever had, and they are consistently good which is a major plus. If you like well seasoned tex mex seasoned beef fajitas, Im sure youll agree these are some of the best you ve ever had. Some people have complained about the service, I've personally never had a problem, it's always been very good. The only thing Im not a giant fan of is their margaritas, but then again, I like the idea of margaritas more then I like anyones margaritas. more

Bad service and so-so food 4/15/2006

We ate at their old smaller location a few times. It was food, so-so atmosphere, and so-so service. It was usually just a quick weeknight meal. We tried their new location and the food was the same. But the service was just plain bad (slow and little attention) and the atmosphere was LOUD and chaotic. I can't understand why it always seems crowded. Maybe others have had a different experience, but we definitely won't be back. Not sure how they managed to build a new and larger building based on the food and service that we expereinced! more

Loud and pricey - there are plenty of other places I'd rather go! 4/7/2006

They built the new El Jarrito shortly after we moved. It seemed like it was always packed and we figured it was just because it was new. We waited, and waited, and it didn't seem to die down, so we ended up going to check it out. We had to wait quite awhile to be seated and it was so loud that I couldn't even have a conversation. The portions were generous, but our service was terrible and I wasn't that impressed with the food. I thought it was kind of bland. I will stick with some of my other favorite Mexican restaurants for now! more

Great mexican food and great service! 8/17/2005

We have been to El Jarrito several times when it was located on Mason Rd. and the food was always good. We've found their waitstaff friendly and the service has always been great. They have just recently moved to this new location on Highland Knolls. They are usually quite busy but we have never had to wait extremely long time for our food orders I love there cheese enchiladas. My husband always gets their fajatis. Their menu prices are reasonable. ( Oh yeah....Their margarita's are really good too). You can get coupons for free kids meal or other complimentry items at their website. . more
