The Real Deal

El Jimador serves ample portions, makes honest drinks and service is up a grade or two from most other area restaurants.

Our first time here did not disappoint. The food tasted authentic and the portion sizes were huge. You'll leave full AND with leftovers. Free chips and salsa with great tasting drinks too. We'll definitely be back.

We go to El Jimador in St. Robert once a week. It's consistently good food, chips/sauce and very friendly service. A great place to dine!

The food was good. I had an entree with chicken breast and queso. It comes with tortillas, rice, and beans. The chicken was tasty and flavorful but the rice was dry and bland. I wish they served corn tortillas with the meals instead of flour tortillas but if you ask they will bring corn tortillas to your table. The service... More

Absolutely the best authentic Mexican food I've had from a restaurant. The food is always great, great portions for a great price! Food comes out piping hot and the service has always been great.

There are a lot of mexican restaurants, their menus are the same, and for some unknown reason, sometimes the food is just awful and other times, you have success. This was a successful meal! The chille rellenos were the best! The waiter very kind and not in your face. Great meal.

Salsa was watery. Beef tacos tasted like old el Paso that I make at home. My daughter would not eat them they were so bad. I tasted it and I concur. Beans were clearly mass produced in a can. Rice was OK. I had a chicken burrito which was tasty. The service provider was OK. I would not go out... More

I ate here with 2 other people; food was pretty average and prices were average for lunch. I liked the queso dip; other items were average or less than average.

We love Mexican! The food here is average. Not bad. There is an odor here like a cleaning solution that may be used. Probably concentrated. It just makes what I order taste odd. They get alot of business here and the service is good and fast. Portions are large. I like it better when we take out. No odor at... More
