Yummmmm

This restaurant is the closest thing to authentic Mexican food you'll find in New York. The service is friendly and quick. The portions are generous. If you leave hungry it's your own fault. Give them a chance you won't regret it.

We live around the corner from Jimador and by most standards we eat at this place too much. Can't say enough about the experience. Do not go here expecting fancy service or food but you will consistently get an affordable meal that is worth more than you paid for it from staff that is friendlier than they need to be.... More

I eat there a couple times a year. It is always good, quick service, and reasonable prices. I just hope it stays in business; Mexican restaurants around here rarely stay around for more than a year.

The service you will receive is awesome! They start you out with salsa and chips which are tasty...They have a great menu with a good amount of choices! I usually get a quesadilla with double beans! :)

This is a terrific Mexican restaurant. The food is prepared fresh and the frozen margaritas are delicious. I enjoyed the fajitas. The chicken was fresh and cooked properly and arrived on a sizzling pan with lots of vegetables. The smell was awesome. Service was great with the staff buzzing around the restaurant attending to our every need. Glasses never stayed... More

This is one of our favorite places to eat out. The prices aren't bad and the food is great. Margaritas are nice and come in many sizes. Favorite meal is the shrimp fajitas.

We were out at the Ontario Antique Mall and I noticed this place on the way there. We stopped for dinner on Saturday night about 4:45 PM and the place was already 3/4 full. The staff was great. I liked how it didn't matter who our waitress was, all of the staff poured water and made sure the chips and... More

Lunch was fast almost too fast. Big open room with not very much charm. The food was good and presentation was average. If you are looking for a quick and no frills lunch that is not a chain burger joint, this is the place.
