All the servers are friendly and make you feel at home. It took us a while to find El Jinette's after searching around the Atlanta area for good Mexican food. It has something for everyone. Everything I have tried on the menu has been great. We have referred many others to this restaurant and have never heard a complaint.

The service is always great, and food comes hot and fast. The food is very consistent, always very good and lots of it. Warm chips and salsa are awesome. I took one of my friends there for lunch who is always very critical of restaurant food and service, and he loved it! He takes his family there now. Definitely my... More

I recently had dinner with a friend and enjoyed this place a lot. I ordered one beef taco and two beef enchiladas with rice. From the warm nacho chips to the meal, it was great. The meal was hot and quickly made it to our table. The service was excellent and restaurant was very clean. It was almost full by... More

I went to this restaurant with a large group (10 people), and most of the group were from countries all around the world. One of the South African girls told me that I had to rate this restaurant 4 stars. When I asked why, she said that the food was exceptionally good. But there was too much of it. And... More

Numerous dishes to choose from on their extensive menu. Delicious and large portion sizes. Service was average but waiter had to return to table to verify our order. The salsa was runny and tasted like it was poured out of a large metal can. Considering the quality of the meals the salsa very lacking. This restaurant is located in a... More
