This is a branch that has opened recently in Ruckersville. It is the hottest that has hit Ruckersville ever. (not too many things happen in Ruckersville. The food is ooooh so good. The service is excellent. They have lunch menus Monday thru Friday @ 5.25! We've eaten there for lunch and dinner. Same consistent goodness.

El Jaripeo has become part of our regular dinner rotation. Their food is top notch with many different types of entrees all prepared deliciously. It is Mexican food at its finest - better than most we have had when visiting Mexico. The service is very good and your meal will often arrive before you have finished your basket of chips.... More

Not exactly the first place you would think of for great chicken soup but it's number one on my list. Fun, family restaurant near Forest Lakes North

We have visited El Jaripeo several times both as eat in and take out. The food has always been quite good, and they have some specials that are quite reasonably priced. The atmosphere is nice and the service friendly and good. I was not, however, impressed by their Margaritas, the price was right, but not the flavor. Easy to find,... More

This review is for the new El Jaripeo location in Ruckersville across from Walmart in the shopping center. It is not in the TA data base yet. It is excellent.

Try getting the vegetarian quesadilla and having chicken added. That way, you get the best of both sides of the menu. There were enough chips and salsa left over to make a snack the next day. Our order was to go and the place was crowded. It took awhile but it was worth the wait. Timberwood Blvd. locaion

Food and beers very good value. Quick, friendly service with free nachos and dip served whilst you are waiting. Total bill, including taxes, for 2 x 22 ounce Dos Equis (on special), 2 mains and extra guacamole was $28.
