We always like to try different Mexican restaurants. We heard from a friend that the food was great here so we decided to give it a try. It was a busy Saturday & we waited about 20 minutes to be seated. They brought the drinks & chips & salsa right away. The salsa was extremely salty. I have been to... More

The food is always good here especially the fajitas! Also if you like margaritas they have many to choose from and also several choices in size.

This place is a nice little Mexican restaurant with very good food. There was no wait because there are plenty of tables and seats. It has a bar as well and the staff was mostly family, so it felt very much like home. I will be eating here again.

Great food, fast service, hot plates, cold beer. If you like spicy, ask and they will turn it up. Try some grilled jalapeños on the side. Chipotle shrimp is outstanding. Closed on Mondays.

We stopped by on our way back to Rochester from the Finger Lakes. We had spied this place many times so it was nice to finally try it. First off the service was outstanding: friendly, super efficient, and impressive feats of strengths (how those tiny gals hoisted those overloaded heavy trays was amazing). The prices were quite attractive compared to... More

El Jimador has the best Mexican food around, hands down. I've been to New Mexico and Southern California and the authenticity is comparable. The prices are more than reasonable too. Make sure to try the Sopa De Pollo appetizer and the El Molcajete. Also, the house specialties are much better than the standard combo dinners.
