El Jarrito Mexican Restaurant

El Jarrito Mexican Restaurant in Katy Texas is a local standby serving Tex-Mex fare & margaritas in a roomy, atmospheric space.

El Jarrito opened for business in November 23, 1998. It is a family owned business, owned by Gildardo (Gil) Leon y familia. Senor Leon for many years worked as a waiter at a Mexican Restaurant near BP in Houston, Texas. Here he gained his experience in the restaurant business.

In early 1998, he and his family began to make ALL the tables, chairs, and booths that you now see in the restaurant. There were many drops of sweat in the making of all the furniture. But, alas, it was completed.

When El Jarrito first opened, there were many challenges. Mr. Leon needed to learn to manage. He had only waited tables before, but knew he could make delicious plates of Mexican food. After a learning curve of how to manage a restaurant, he began to improve in service. Today, both service and food is GREAT! The food is made FRESH daily. For two years in a row, El Jarrito Mexican Restaurant was chosen by the general public on http://www.citysearch.com as “The Best Mexican Restaurant” in all of Houston. He wishes to thank you for this honor!
