Great food, great value

It gets very busy at times but it's well worth the wait. A very large menu with plenty of choices. This is a regular rotation restaurant with our family. You can get a good meal, lots of free chips and salsa, at a very reasonable price.

Definantly not what I was hoping for, but I suppose nothing will compare to my favorite Mexican restaraunt chilangos, but food was pretty good and plentiful, I do have to mention that the guacamole was excelent, and that's coming from a person who can't stand the stuff. Decoration was a tad on the weird side, waitress seemed as if she... More

When we first arrived it was relatively dark and colder then I would have liked. Granted we were the second customers there, but I'm the old fashioned turn on your lights and turn up your heat prior to opening kind of guy. With that said, as more people arrived they slowly turned lifhts on and after enough hot sauce I... More

Visited on a Friday early evening. Got seated right away. Waitress was very attentive. There were 4 of us. Food took a bit but didn't bother us at all. All food was hot when it arrived and tasted great. We each ate something different and all liked it from tacos to burritos to fajitas. Price was good - not cheap... More

I just had to comment on rudeness statement .I have been patronizing El Jimador from day one, l'm considered a regular. I don't believe your comment on rudeness from the owner The owners of El Jimador run a tight ship. That's why the service is great, food is delicious, place is very clean. And as for the nacho girl you... More
