Great Service, and the Food's Pretty Dang Good!

This is one of our favorite places to have a very tasty Mexican meal. The staff is friendly and bend over backwards to give great service. There's always a plate of leftovers that come home with us. The portions are great and the flavor is excellent. Unless there is a catastrophe, we be back again... read more

I love eating and having drinks at this restaurant. The staff are always friendly...and so are the "regulars" lol! The portion sizes are good and I always need a to-go bag. They are family friendly in the dining area or just want to hang out at the bar.

Our favorite Mexican restaurant. We eat here several times a month and really enjoy the food. Sometimes service is a little lacking but the taste of the food makes up for it.

We had not been here is several years and we were shocked at how busy this place is now. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Great margarita's - good food and good fun.

Twelve of my family went to eat lunch. We were seated quickly. The restaurant appeared to be clean. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We received our food fairly quickly and it was correct. The food tasted great. Looking forward to going again.

The best place for authentic Mexican food in the area. Nothing fancy or trendy just good food and good service at a reasonable price. My family and I are repeat customers.

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.
