    Good location in the Village, lots of food & outdoor seating . BUT, try their other restaurant--Hacienda on Big Bear Blvd.--especially for their great Happy Hour!!!

    The first thing I noticed when we walked into El Jacalito (aside from the crowd) were the massive drinks. As in, 18 oz. margaritas. Of course, we had to try one. Our mango margarita was delicious, as was the food we had here - a carne asada burrito (enchilada style) and carnitas enchiladas. Like the drinks, the dishes were HUGE.
    My favorite part though was the unlimited chips and salsa - you can fill up your little salsa bowl at a nearby bar as much as you want. Maybe that's why I couldn't finish my meal...

    Pretty good food, very nice outside dining area. If you sit near the sidewalk they will let you tie your dogs to railing while you eat!
