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.

Food is great, staff is friendly & helpful. Customers come back frequently and learned there's a group of customers which know each other based on the fact they're all there on Wednesday's. :)

We are lucky to have our favorite Mexican restaurant just around the corner. The food, frozen margaritas, prices and service are all great. Free unlimited chips with great salsa top it off!
