quickly seated, but got very busy within a few minutes. Good hot chips and salsa, food was also quick and hot and plentiful! Will go again!

Been coming here at least once a week since they opened 15 years ago. Great food, great service (especially Ramon) and friendly neighborhood feel. Not fancy, just good! I hate going to other Mexican restaurants as they never measure up to El Jinete.

We Love our Mexican food and Jinete's is great. All the staff is friendly and helpful. And the food is absolutely wonderful. Every time we go to Atlanta to visit family we make it a point to go to this restaurant. Highly recommended. Very good margaritas also.

Overall great experience. Cheese dip was yummy! You can get it mild or spicy. Everything seemed fresh. The chicken and steak quesadilla was delicious. The meat was well-seasoned. Great service!!!

I have been going there for about 20 years. The service is great. And the Mexican food is truly ethnic. Sometimes you get Mexican food that tastes corporate or as if all the flavors have no independance. Here each item has its own personality. The Chicken soup has avocados in it with rice and a rich broth. Blends together well... More

I always order the chicken taco salad. It is always fresh, the size is very large and the price is reasonable between $6-7 dollars.
