El Jacalito Restaurant, located at 2215 Missouri Ave, just celebrated their four year anniversary. Yelp has an average rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 for El Jacalito. Reviews rave about their great breakfasts, which include a breakfast skillet that has two eggs, potatoes, chorizo, onion, bell peppers, and cheese or their omelets. For lunch and dinner they get rave reviews for their chile rellenos, gorditas, tacos, and the relleno burger. The relleno burger is their twist of the green chile cheese burger, it’s a cheese burger topped with a fried chile relleno, or what we at Everything Las Cruces like to call heaven on a plate!
El Jacalito has a friendly atmosphere, the owners, Luis and Juan, are there daily making their delish Mexican food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also have a drive-thru which makes ordering and taking your delish Mexican food to go even easier. They are open Monday to Saturday 8 am to 7pm and closed on Sunday.
