Ole y'all

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.

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!!!

Had a very good meal with my wife and daughter. Went on Fri night, had only about a 15 minute wait. My wife had a chicken and spinach dish. My daughter had a vegetarian combo. 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
