I was looking for something a little different for takeout on a recent stay, and liked what I heard about El Jimador.

We eat here often. The food is always fresh and well prepared. The service is fast and very attentive. It's a GREAT PLACE to go with kids and families! Their carnitas are wonderful as are their chimichangas. There are always plenty of chips and salsa with free refills!!

My Mexican friends and I eat here regularly and always enjoy a delicious lunch. Everything is fresh and tasty and can be made to order from mild to spicy hot. The staff is always welcoming and friendly, and the service is efficient - all the chips and salsa you want. Recently remodeled, the atmosphere is clean and colorful.

We went to El Jimador restaurant based on reviews by other trip advisors. We walked in the restaurant about 7 pm on a Tuesday night and were surprised to see all the tables full.
