Like most modern conflicts, the rivalry between soft and hard tacos will not end until one side gets eaten by a bear. Broker a culinary truce with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare at El Jardin.

The meal maestros at El Jardin concoct a slew of meat-stuffed burritos, seafood dishes, and vegetarian specialties for lunch and dinner. The quesadilla supreme's flour tortilla houses gooey melted jack cheese, a choice of meat, guacamole, and red or green sauce ($14), and the camarones diablos ($16) showcases sautéed butterflied shrimp simmering in the eatery's spiciest red sauce, which is made from the sun's tears.

Diners relax on the venue's heated, dog-friendly outdoor patio, where they can snag a loaded a la carte steak burrito ($5) or sink teeth into an a la carte lemon chicken taco ($6), so-called because chefs pluck the fully formed tacos from citrus trees. El Jardin's charming atmosphere washes over a pale-yellow dining room bedecked with vibrant artwork, decorative mosaic tiles, a stone fireplace, and a full bar.

Our customers loved this deal last year, earning El Jardin a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.

El Jardin

The El Jardin story opens more than two decades ago, when the Delgado family first began serving authentic Mexican dishes at its festive, color-soaked restaurant. Today, Delgado family members continue to run the kitchen, folding locally grown produce, fresh seafood, and homemade salsas into dishes that have been lauded by Santa Cruz Good Times. Owner George Delgado's own mosaic artwork adorns the floors of the dining room, where vibrant paintings act as eye candy to accompany house margaritas, enchiladas, fajitas, and specialty dishes. Outdoor heaters warm diners seated on the expansive patio, which sits amidst a garden of plant life and songbirds that croon the lyrics to popular mariachi numbers.

Customer Reviews

Friendly staff, good service, nice food
Bill N. · May 22, 2015
The time of day you go to eat correlates with the quality of the food. Also, for the vegetarians- the been dip contains lard and there's no mention of it. The Bartenders agree good and the service is usually positive.
