We went here because it was my best friend's favorite restaurant. Pleasant surroundings, great service. The food was just average but the margarita was wonderful.

After not going to El Jardin for a number of years we tried it again. We used to eat here regularly when we first moved to Oakdale. We had a bad meal and decided to go elsewhere. There are a number of different options in town for Mex food. We were pleased tonight. We ordered beers and two monsters came... More

This place is super! We love going here at least once a week. We have never been disappointed with our meals. The food is authentic and delicious!! The staff is so nice, always smiling and they remember how many in your family and what you like to drink. Makes you feel so welcome.

I'm a very good cook and my husband is native american/hispanic so I learned a lot from his grandmother. We can honestly say that we have never had Chili Verde or Chili Colorado like this before. The meat was... More

For my birthday, we stopped at El Jardin in Oakdale. We adore the one in Columbia and while there have been a few problems in the past with this particular location, I decided to chance it again. I bring my own drink since no one ever has this particular diet soda available and I need it since I am diabetic.... More

Located across from the old Hershey's Store in downtown Oakdale. "El Jardin" (The Garden) is aptly named with a multitude of vegetation, mosaic flooring and other Mexican flare décor. The food is excellent and comes in very large portions for the price, they also offer a great selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The offerings on the menu cover a... More

You can count on them. They are one of the top Mexican Restaurant's in Oakdale. A little of the beaten path but the locals enjoy El Jardin. All there food is good, hope you enjoy them as much as we do. They have other locations in the area.
