I had a very nice dinner in this small, professionally run restaurant. My traveling companions and I had our best meal in Sonora at El Jardin. Spotlessly clean with a welcoming and professional staff and good food.

This was our last evening in Sonora and I wasn't well. My husband orders a skirt steak with a tomatillo sauce that was as good as any we've tasted. With my discomfort I chose a quesadilla, which was excellent. When I asked for more orange garnish, the waiter was happy to oblige. It was a great experience, which surprised us... More

Every time I eat at any El Jardin the food is consistently good, never had a bad or so-so meal. Help is always good & their salsa NEVER varies from being excellent ... Beer is always good & cold... Cadillac margaritas are perfect!

We've been here twice, a year apart. Both times had excellent food and great service. It's real Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Don't get there right at dinner time on weekends. The place is small (cozy). Last night was Tuesday, arrived at 5:30 and got the last table. It's also little hard to find parking on Main Street at times.

We continue to come back to our favorite Mexican restaurant in Sonora. Excellent margaritas, good food and a friendly staff. When the weather warms up you can sit outside on the cute patio.

In all the times we've eaten here, we've never been disappointed. The food is consistently good with never a long wait. I love its authentic Mexican decor and the outside seating is charming.

Thank Francie S
