Why we went there: This little place is tucked in the corner of the Stater Bros. shopping center, where both a great Greek and Vietnamese restaurant are also located. Figuring that we've tried two of the three places, and given that neither of us wanted Christmas leftovers, Jen and I intrepidly went to Jarritos Mexican Restaurant.
Food: We purchased the enchilada combination plate (1 chicken, 1 cheese, both with red sauce) and chicken quesadilla plate along with 2 sodas. Both plates came with rice and beans. The total came to around $20. The enchilada plate was smoking hot with cheesey lava. There was, however, no taste to either meal. The guacamole that came with the quesadilla was freshly made, but with unripe avocados. The chicken used for both the quesadilla and the enchilada was very bland, as was the red sauce. In total, the meal was completely forgettable.
Ambiance: The ambience is quaint, with vibrant colored walls and old clay masks hanging on the walls. There was plenty of room with only one other couple dining there at the time. There was music, but it wasn't overpowering, nor were the two TVs with the hockey game.
Service: There was one waitress who took our order and checked on us a few times. Nothing spectacular, but nothing bad.
Overall rating: 1/5. The food was too forgettable to make us return.
