perfect Mexican restaurant.

The food is great. I have had many different dishes and all are my favorite. You cannot ask for more friendly service. This is my go to restaurant.

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. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated; but it was worth the wait. The waitress's were attentive and had chips & salsa on our table... More

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.

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.
