I lived in ABQ for 12 years & this is some of the best New Mexican food I have had in the metro area. I drive from Castle Rock & it's worth it.

Very disappointed with our trip to Jack and Grill. The food was over priced and the taste was just OK. Plus they charge for chips and salsa, where 95% of the Mexican restaurants offer this as complimentary. Also, the environment is more

After waiting 30 minutes for a seat I was excited to try this place for the first time. Why else would this place be packed like this?

Once our table was ready we were asked about having some queso dip. RESIST! it is velvetta and diced

I have never eaten food that was that bad. The 2 types of chili were gross and unfortunately they INSIST on smothering everything they make with it. Suprised it wasnt in my drink. Couldnt even taste my food because of the red chili

After JNG was showcased on Man vs Food I got curious about the burrito which was actually very good. This place is really nice as it offers tasty mexican dishes which don't cost much. This is one of the best places for mexican food

After seeing this place and it's big burrito on the Man Vs. Food show we drove 1/2 way across the US to take the challenge.

The flavor can only be explained as water and potatoes. There was barely any meat at all and I don't think they drained the water from boiling the potatoes as the burrito was almost floating in water. The potatoes weren't even cooked all the way.

No amount of sauce or spices could make it have enough flavor to even attempt to eat.

On the way out I spoke with the owner about my experience, even stating that we drove 1300 miles for the challenge... he pretty much brushed me off.

After hearing good things about this place, I decided to check it out. I heard the green chili was rich and good with big chunks of pork, but discovered it was thin and watery with exactly NO chunks of pork. What a disappointment!

I tried the 4 mini gorditias, and only the chicken filling was decent. The "breakfast" filling had one little shred of egg and a bunch of potatoes. Boring. The carne adovada was dry and tasteless, and even dunking it in the crappy green chili didn't help. Save yourself some money and disappointment and go somewhere else.

After hearing about this restaurant through popular local newspapers and a friend who dined there, I decided to give it a try.

While I must say the service was very good and the food was served quickly, the rest of the experience was awful!

As I sat there consuming an extremely large breakfast burrito that was essentially flavorless with watery green chili, I could only ask myself ...... what the hell was all the fuss about???? I gazed longingly out the window at Santiagos and wished I had not made such a long trip to give this place a try.

Over rated and over priced.... save your money and go across the street to Santiagos, where the chili is always amazing and the prices are great!!!

My fiance and I used to love Jack N Grill, we would be there at least twice a month. Recently they changed their food up alittle and it is no longer home cooked yummy goodness. :( on our most recent trip the service was the worst we'd ever had anywhere not to mention there. What the heck happened Jack? We've removed Jack N Grill from our go to list sadly. Now the food is equal to the price YUK!! so sad and disappointed. We will not be going back.

Cons: where to begin......

I love the idea of frequenting a family run business, with fresh ingredients and friendly staff. Unfortunately, Jack N Grill is not well run. After the location on Belleview and SAnta Fe opened, we went several times to try their much talked about burgers. 5 out of 6 times we went they were out of the burgers, buns or both. One time I tried to order several entrees and was told they were also out most of the ingredients needed. This was after waiting half hour for a table. Not worth the wait!! The bar service is super slow and unorganized. The wait staff has always been pretty good, not their fault the management doesn't know how to order for a busy night. Get it together people! There is too much competition out there for my money.

Cons: always running out of food, mismanaged, poor bar service

Never got a chance to try the food because no one noticed when my husband and I walked in. They were very busy but after patiently waiting for 10 minutes we walked out. There's too many good eats in North Denver to be treated this way.

I had lunch here a few weeks ago. The place was packed and for good reason. My meal was delicious. I had the beef vaquero tacos--nothing to say but YUMMY! My friend thought that the green chile was too spicy so delicate palates beware.

My favorite restaurant. I would eat there everyday except I would become so obese I wouldn't be able to walk. There burgers are best in town and the burritos are also great. Everything is a huge portion and you can't get a better value. Big eaters never leave hungry and average eaters can split an $8 burger or burrito. Green chile is super fresh and perfect hotness (for me at least, might be too hot for some.) Staff has always been incredibly friendly, nice family run business. The awards on the wall tell it all!

We went to lunch for a friend's birthday. After reading the menu we both decided. When my friend got the Relleno Burrito she discovered it had eggs in it. She's allergic to eggs so we looked back at the menu and there was Zero mention of eggs in the burrito. We asked the manager and she was extremely rude and offered to pay for half of the cost of the burrito. I was shocked as I had never been in a restaurant where after we spent $70 on top shelf tequila that they offered to split the cost of the $8 burrito because they screwed up.

I will never eat here again which is a shame.

I've been to the new location twice, so have only had two items from the menu, but both were fantastic. My giant burger (Dez) was blasted with great favor including fresh chopped chile. Next, was a (Belen) breakfast burrito smothered in great New Mexican green chile. Its refreshing to see someone make green chile without chalking it full of corn starch and flour to thicken it. I could taste the freshness. Great service from the crew. Thank you. Get the beer and margs flowing quickly to complete the experience and a star is born.

Sometimes I crave good, real deal, mexican food and even though there are lots of choices around there isnt a whole lot of people doing it right especially in the south denver/littleton area. I am so impressed with the food that I have to have it at least once a week! For $8 you can get a double burger(the dez) that will feed a small family...literally, and it is delicioso. Jack and his family make it such a friendly place that its hard to stay away and i dare you to walk away without thinking "wow, that was so much food for the money" or "thats some of the best mexican food I've had". Thanks sooo much for coming down south(belleview & santa fe)...your tacos are appreciated!

Love this place, its like my second home. The warmth of the family, food and servive makes my visit there every time so injoyable. I love the taste of the fresh tasting food sure it takes a little time for your food but its worth the wait , and the friendly service. That is why I eat at Jacks every week.

Okay, so I wanted to try this place because it was featured on Man vs Food and thought that this would be a good idea to try something new.. boy was I wrong!! I ordered one of there burritos which came out cold and runny from the beans. The taste was really bland and they put way too much cheese on the burrito to compensate for everything else it was lacking. The chili was okay but again a bit watery. The margaritas again were just okay, however the wait staff was so rude and slow. They had no clue what was going on and lacked any customer service skills. The prices are outrageous for the quality of food that you are getting its insane. I left feeling that I just wasted my hard earned money some discusting food!! I will never go back again let alone waste anymore money here.

I want to first say that I am not an owner or employee of their competition, just to clarity for the reviewer who thinks that's the only reason someone gives a bad review. Also, the reason I gave 2 starts instead of one is that their margaritas were good and the patio was nice.

My boyfriend and I saw this place on Man vs. Food and I just had to see a place that has a 7 lb burrito. We went over a few days ago for lunch and left completely underwhelmed. I ordered the 4 taco sampler while he ordered the stacked cheese enchiladas. We both are pretty open about food but just because you put it in a tortilla doesn't mean you should call it Mexican. I think it's an insult to that culture to pass of mediocre fair as authentic. The food just had no real flavor to it. His looked like a mess too. I know Mexican food differs by region but it was just blah.

We eat everything from cheap and quick to fine dining. It says a lot that we both got in the car and immediately expressed how disappointed we were with the food. We both said we'd never go back. If you are looking for good Mexican go down to South Broadway and go to Taco y Salsa. It's cheaper and authentic!

I went to Jack-N-Grill because it was featured on the travel channel. I brought some friends with me and we were all very excited until we got our food and we were very disappointed. It wasn't bad food, it just had no flavor. I am not sure how the other reviewers can give this place 5 stars. On another note, we were only a party of 4 and 20% gratuity was added to our bill. I have never been anywhere that automatically added that high of a gratuity for 4 people. Not that the service was bad but seriously, 20% for flavorless food that took some time to get to our table????

If you want good Mexican food, go to Efrains in Lafayette or Boulder.

I saw jack-n-grill on the travel channel and figured my husband and i have to try it! We have both grown up in denver and never even heard of it! We absolutely enjoyed ever aspect of it! Yes it takes a lilttle while to get seated or even for the food to come, BUT if you read the menu carefully they do say it is good food not fast food. Your paying and waiting for something that is truely enjoyable and worth the wait and money. Everything is very large portions and for a very good price! The house margaritas are to die for mmmm! I think that anyone who has to say bad things about the place is either just jealous that their resturant is'nt doing as well or they are just plain old to picky! If you cant wait a little while for a table in an amazing place for good cheap food then you should just stay home and eat some ramen! The servers were very sweet even ones that werent ours. They all seem to be a big happy family at Jack-N-Grill and we will be going there forever! Also we were told they will be opening another location down south near bellview and prince area which were super excited for seeings how we live in castle rock and make the drive that far!

Here we go again, DenverFoodie2, you need a lesson in geography! First off, the reason the food tastes different to you is because you are used to eating "Mexican" food. Jack-n-Grill is not Mexican, it is New Mexican, like from the state of "New Mexico". Mexican food is from the country of "Mexico".
Tacos y Salsa is good if you want "Mexican" But for true home style cooking from the state of "New Mexico", Jack-n-Grill is by far the best. We have won every award on our menu.
I just got a copy of USA Today, (Fri/Sat/Sun, September 11-13) edition, in the "Life Weekend" in the Travel Section, they list the "10 great places for Latino flavor, flair" in the country! Guess what? Jack-n-Grill made the list...."TOP TEN IN THE COUNTRY"!!
Not to mention....Man vs Food, and The Travel Channels Extreme Places to Pig Out!
And you say my food had no real flavor....and mediocre? And trying to pass off as Mexican? Well, I hope you know the difference now. Take it from me, I love to eat and cook, and I too have been to every restaurant known to man. My food is consistent and fresh.
I suggest you give us another try and order one of our huge burgers! You can get fresh green chile and cheese....ummmm.
"The Food Network Magazine's", "50 States, 50 Burgers" just awarded us with having the best burger in Colorado.

Tacos y Salsa is good if you want "Mexican" But for true home style cooking from the state of "New Mexico", Jack-n-Grill is by far the best. We have won every award on our menu.
I just got a copy of USA Today, (Fri/Sat/Sun, September 11-13) edition, in the "Life Weekend" in the Travel Section, they list the "10 great places for Latino flavor, flair" in the country! Guess what? Jack-n-Grill made the list...."TOP TEN IN THE COUNTRY"!!
Not to mention....Man vs Food, and The Travel Channels Extreme Places to Pig Out!
And you say my food had no real flavor....and mediocre? And trying to pass off as Mexican? Well, I hope you know the difference now. Take it from me, I love to eat and cook, and I too have been to every restaurant known to man. My food is consistent and fresh.
I suggest you give us another try and order one of our huge burgers! You can get fresh green chile and cheese....ummmm.
"The Food Network Magazine's", "50 States, 50 Burgers" just awarded us with having the best burger in Colorado.

Pros: Everything

Cons: Nothing

.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend of ours. My husband ordered the burger which was HUGE! I ordered the bean & cheese burrito. The green chili was ok but I was disappointed that the beans weren't refried which I prefer. Next time I'll order a breakfast burrito.
Note to owner: Albuquerque is spelled wrong on your menu. It isn't AlbuRquerque.

I can't understand why people (employees, management or even its owners) from other restaurants write bad comments about their competition! It's obvious that those terrible reviews are written by them. No ordinary customer would have such a bad expierence without it being resolved by the Restaurant Management or its Ownership. Come on!
Jack-n-Grill is a gem. I have been going back on a regular basis and have never, NEVER had a bad meal or terrible service. They put out some fabulous food. I wish it were a bit bigger, but my family and friends really enjoy it there.
And for the reviewer that says..."I'm Hispanic and I know Mexican" Well pal, you may be Hispanic, but your taste buds are dead! Stick to your Taco Bell.
I encourage everyone to try this "Nationally Famous" mom&pop restaurant, (They were featured on the Food Channel's "Man vs Food" and on the Food Channels "Extreme Places to Pig Out". They have a 7lb Breakfast Burrito Challenge!
So all you haters (employees and management from other mexican restaurants) that write lies about this little successful joint, GET A LIFE, no one pays attention to your vile lies. Try it once, you will be hooked.
I got family coming in from California, can't wait to take them there.

I'd heard good things about this place and I since I don't eat out often, I thought it would be a good bet to spend my hard earned money. What a mistake! I'm hispanic and I know good mexican (new mexican or tex mex) food. The food here was so tasteless and uninspired. I ordered cheese enchiladas (how can you mess them up?) and my friend ordered beef enchiladas. We suspected a bad experience was at hand with the awful hot sauce they included with the chips. Anyway, after 20 minutes, our food arrived, COLD, and my friends plate wasn't even beef enchiladas (only God knows what it was). Of course we never saw our waitress again to comment. We decided not to even if we could have because my enchiladas were absolutely the worst I've ever eaten so why bother to go from bad to worse. Even the beans and rice were bland and yucky. Taco Bell is better. How this place got a good reputation is a mystery.

Oh no you got to be crazy, this place is gross!! I mean it's not even authentic mexican food! It's expensive, small plates, and the service is bad, I'm hispanic and I know mexican food, and even if your not mexican there are WAY BETTER mexican resturants to go eat at. Won't be going there again, That place has certificates for nothing, that place is no good!

My husband and I don't mind waiting when a place is busy, but we went to Jack-n-Grill yesterday and they took it to a whole different level. We couldn't find anyone to seat us, but there were empty tables all over. We finally got seated on the patio but didn't get menus for a very long time. We finally got our drinks ordered but decided to leave after 20 minutes of them not coming. We were getting up to leave when our waitress came by and acted all surprised we hadn't received our drinks yet. She didn't even try to act sorry or make it right and even told us the food would probably take a long time too. What horrible customer service! We were shocked and disappointed because a lot of our friends really like it there. We won't be going back.

We've gone twice in the last month and both occasions have been enjoyable. The food is the most authentic New Mexican style that you will find in Denver. If you are looking to get in and out quickly, then this is the wrong place. But don't let that stop you, try one of their homemade margaritas, selection of mexican beers, or a shot of one of the many tequillas at the bar while you wait. We've found the wait staff to be friendly and very attentive. They make some great suggestions about the food, for example instead of picking between two great chiles (red and green), they recommend I try both, "Christmas style". I've heard the BBQ chicken tacos are good too. What makes Jack and Grill so unique is the family atmosphere. We look forward to coming back many times in the future.

Pros: great food, tasty margaritas, casual friendly decor

Cons: dining room could be larger

Unless you want to spend half of your afternoon trying to flag down un-attentive, always rushed, incredibly rude wait staff I would highly recommend not coming to this restaurant. I'm talking 25 minutes just to get drinks when we sat down, and another 40 to get our food--oh and then they forgot our silverware--another 10 minutes! Ageism may have been somewhat of a factor--my boyfriend and I are in our upper twenties but look young, and we noticed all the older people around us getting faster and more polite service--even from our same waiter! Regardless, the ancho chile bbq tacos are good, but the bean and beef burrito is passable at best--and the bite sized sopapillas are not great either--drizzled with what tasted like store bought chocolate and raspberry sauce. Not sure of other New Mexican restaurants around but do yourselves a favor and don't waste your time at this one!

Pros: good ancho chile bbq tacos

Cons: service was so horrible it definitely overshadowed the food

I loved this place when they first opened. I'm from New Mexico and I'm picky, picky about my native cusine. Great green chile, carne adovado, Santa Fe style enchiladas. The service has always been iffy to down right rude (but so is the owner so he kind of leads by example, or lack thereof). I ususally try and go at "off" hours and the service is a little better. At least they have Margaritas now but I'm not sure that's a good thing since the sweet and sour mix they use tastes like gasoline (stick to beer). Prices have easily doubled since they open. A plate of chees enchiladas (food cost about $1.00) tops out over $11.00. All in all when I get to jonesing for New Mexican I head to Little Anita's.

This is tough for me because I LOVE their food. Unfortunately, their service is terrible. I've been there on more than one occasion with a party of two or more, and we get our orders 5 minutes apart. You never know how long you'll wait for you food, and the personalities of some of the staff are less than friendly, but when it's a family business, it's not going to change. And when you ask for extra onioins, or extra anything else, they'll charge you up the wazoo! If you want great food, go there, but you've been warned about the service.

For a number of years I have heard and read excellent things about Jack N Grill so I was eager to go and try their chile. I went in on a weekday in the middle of the afternoon and the place was almost empty which was nice because I was seated immediately by a young man working behind the bar. Once seated I reviewed the menu and I must admit I was a little surprised at the prices. Mexican food is typically one of the cheapest and this was pretty pricey, but I thought "what the hey, I'm sure it will be worth it". I ordered a burrito and some chips and salsa. I waited and waited and waited for quite sometime for the food to arrive which I didn't mind on the burrito, but chips and salsa? Those should be brought out immediately, especially if a place is not busy, which it wasn't. The burrito was huge (a plus) but honestly the food was IMHO only average. It certainly wasn't bad, it just wasn't great. Nothing to get excited about. Also the service was a little shoddy, I had to flag down the server/bartender for refills on my drinks. Remember, the place was not busy at this time. I wouldn't make an effort to go there again.
