Compared to all of the other Mexican restaurants in town, still in existence and closed, El Jimador has the most consistent quality and service. We go once a week. Mondays are the least crowded. Thursdays an Fridays are the most crowded.

What was once a pretty good Mexican restaurant has consistently worked it's way down the ranks within our household. We have quit going all together after experiencing multiple problems - anywhere from orders being completely wrong & no refills, to placing to go orders & showing up to pick up our food only to be told that they never received...

You just can't go wrong with El Jimador if you are in the mood for Mexican food. The menu is varied and the service is quick. The only way you will be disappointed is if you are going there for something other than Mexican food.

The only thing I like or eat here is the chicken quesadilla. It is delicious! I've tried some other entrees but didn't care for them. The chips and salsa are pretty good as well. The service is usually fast and friendly although there is a language barrier at times.

The worst Mexican food around. They use very cheap ingredients and overcook their meat and sauces. Service is slow. Had to beg to get a drink refill. Montezuma's revenge came after lunch.

My husband and I go here often. The food is very standard for a Mexican restaurant, but it is affordable and tasty. They have GREAT beer prices and happy hour margaritas...much cheaper than drinks at most restaurants. Enjoy!

This restaurant is a favorite of ours and pretty much everyone in town. The food is always good and the service is great. The atmosphere is very relaxed, yet the food always arrives quickly.

Everyone raves how good the food is here. We have tried it three times and been disappointed every time. Chicken and beef are flavorless. Service is slow. We won't go back.
