We know that when you get together with family and friends it's an experience like no other. Laughter and memories are created at the dining room table, and at El Jardin, we LOVE to be a part of it. Food is our passion and you'll take notice right from the start with our fresh chips and salsa that are prepared every morning in our kitchen. Providing an excellent dining experience has been our number one goal for over 35 years.
You will find it's casual at El Jardin with a menu that consists of terrific Southwestern/Mexican Cuisine like the sizzling fajitas, the grilled pork chops, and steaks served with green chile. Our daily specials include Sopapilla Rancheras, Tequila Lime Chicken & our Steak Picado that is grilled to perfection. Then there's the green chile, you can have it the way you like it, mild, medium, hot, or extra hot! Finally, we have a great selection of appetizers and desserts, from our signature order of Rellenitos to our fresh puffy sopapillas that most guests say are the BEST ON THE PLANET! Don't think we forgot about the kids. Every Monday evening kids 12 and under eat FREE off of our kid's menu.
For those of you who like to kick up your dining experience a notch, our full-service bar which was newly remodeled in 2013, we have all your favorite spirits and eight beers on tap to choose from. Our bartenders are shaking things up fresh every night from our perfect margaritas to our freshly squeezed MOJITOS. Every Thursday evening we feature our regular Famous 16 oz. Margaritas for only $2.99 each. Get here early, because we'll serve over 300 margaritas on Thursday nights!
Our dining room is warm and inviting with 140 seats in the main room and a 20 seat beautifully landscaped patio that is open during the warmer seasons. We also feature a 100 seat banquet room for any event that you may have. Our catering company offers full-service catering or drop-offs for any event you may have.
We could go on and on as I haven't even discussed breakfast or lunches, but I think you get the point. We are proud of El Jardin Restaurant and the history that involves our family business. Since 1982 we have built our business by serving one great meal at a time while providing outstanding guest service. Come visit for yourself and find out why we have been consistently voted one of the best Mexican Restaurants in all of Colorado. Channel 7 A*List has voted us #1 Mexican restaurant in all of Denver six out of the last seven years.
Our motto and business philosophy still remain the same today as it did when we first opened our doors, this is why we have been serving the Denver metro area for over 35 years...we care about your dining experience, that is why we give a 100% Money Back Guarantee for everything on our menu. If you are not happy, we will fix it, if we cannot fix it, you don't pay.
I want to thank YOU, the guest in my house that has supported our growth, dreams, and restaurant these past 39 years. We are nothing without you. You allow us to have a job, career, and passion (and never the other way around). We are not perfect and we have and will continue to make mistakes. I often refer to this business is like serving Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner in your home to your family of 10-20 people...if you had to do that 365 days a year, you occasionally will burn the turkey or forget the dinner napkins. It is our job to own those occasional mistakes, learn from them and regain your trust and forgiveness for future visits.
Your loyalty and patronage are the heartbeats in this little boy's dream from Commerce City, Colorado. We may be a large restaurant, but, we are still a small, local company trying to make our community proud of our accomplishments while providing an excellent dining experience, delicious homemade food, and the BEST margaritas you'll drink anywhere! Thank you all for your continued support,
Ben Martinez - El Jardin Restaurant
