My husband and I tired of seeking good Mexican food in our area went to TripAdvisor for help! We searched for the top rated Mexican restaurants in our area and came across El Jinete. Upon our first visit we decided to make it a regular place to eat out and what a great decision that was. We've not had anything... More

This is a small place tucked into the Plaza. It has been here about 10 years and serves a great variety of dishes. The margaritas will welcome you taste buds. The people are very nice too. It does great business and waiting for a table may happen. However the plates and drinks are plentiful and worth the wait.

I like the Choripollo and the Garlic Shrimp minus the onions. The service is unbeatable but you will feel like you are in a fast food joint because table turnover is a 3 second job. You don't feel rushed per se but as soon as you get up everything on the table is gone!!

Ramon treats my husband and me (and anyone we bring with us) like royalty! The food is exceptional; large portions, perfectly cooked, and usually very quick. Weekends are insane as EVERYONE knows about how amazing this place is so expect a wait. The texas margaritas on the rocks are the best I've ever had, even in Mexico. This is a... More

In my lifetime (long), I have never fallen in love with a restaurant staff. Things change. This place is not a restaurant....it is a place to look forward to going to. The staff is so very friendly....always making you welcomed...and the food/service unmatched. All this at a very reasonable price range. Ohhhh...the Margaritas are the very best....I keep trying to... More
