I had the El Jinete tacos. All the food was very good as was the value. Ask for Ramon as a waiter. He was fantastic... More

The atmosphere is not that special; but the service is very quick and food good. Prices are very fair, as well.

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.

We met a friend here for lunch last week on the basis of trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The service was great, and the food was delicious. The tacos I had were the best I have had in any restaurant. Beef was not greasy, cheese was abundant and the sour cream was even good. We sat and... More

The food, the staff all top shelf. I've been going There since they opened, they are the greatest! Every time we have out of town company, that's the first place they want to go. Most of the time they request to meet us there.

This place is awesome... I've been eating here with family & friends for years and they never let us down. The food is delicious, portions are big and the service is top notch. If I ever had a complaint, it's that they're simply TOO popular! Getting in on a Saturday evening or Sunday after church is a challenge. When I... More

I have been twice. Not disappointed. Had chicken fajitas and the serving was plentiful. Friendly staff. Was a tad bit slow tonight, but they were busy. Will be returning.

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.
