Pretty good for Snellville

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

Everything about restaurant was Great. Meals were very large, great value and great tasting. The service was exceptional. This is now by far our favorite restaurant in Snellville.

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

El Jinete is one of the best local Mexican Restaurants in the Gwinnett County area. The portions are large, food is served hot and fresh and the waiters are some of the most attentive in any restaurant in the area! Try them out and you will love this place!

This is the place we like to go to on Friday Nights!! If you don't get there by 5 you will need to wait for a table. But the wait is worth it. See if you can sit in Ramon's section. He treats everyone like family. The food is very good, the margarita's are excellent, but truly it is about... More

We've been there so many times because they treat us like family. As all the other local Mexican Restaurants changed their menus, shrunk their portions, and raised their prices, El Jinete has stayed the same & outperformed the competition.

We were traveling on Mothers Day and went on Trip Advisor for help as we travelled through Georgia. We hit another winner with El Jiente. It opened at noon, we got there at 12:15 and got right in. By 1:00 the wait line was out the door. That tells you something right there. The chicken fajitas were enough for three... More
