We love El Jinete. Usually go on Sundays after church or get take out. Son had Carne Azada, FIL had steak ranchero, MIL had chicken soup, I had Tommy's salad. All were excellent. Very clean. Great staff.

My family and I stopped here for lunch on Sunday Sep. 25 after visiting Baby land general / cabbage patch land. It was ok but not the best mexican food we've had during our travels. My family loves mexican food and we eat mexican food often, and this place was average. The service was poor. We got in quickly and... More

Visited Clarksville and found this place on Trip Advisor. So glad we went. We loved the salsa they brought with chips. Nicely flavored and generous portion. We ordered, then asked if they have hot sauce. They brought small bowl of homemade sauce that was delicious. We always say that you can tell a lot about a Mexican place by its... More

We stopped here on the way home and when we walked in it smelled really musty. It could use a little Lysol and a good cleaning service. The food was good, but I really wouldn't want to bring family or friends here.

We have stopped here three times in the last year. Each time the waiters were excellent and the food was delicious.

Your typical Mexican restaurant but the food was very good. My steak fajitas were tasty and had good meat. I have repeatedly had fajitas with steak that was poor quality at other restaurants. The guacamole was fresh and better than most places. 5 of us all agreed the food was excellent.

Traveling through town & stopped on a whim. The service was excellent, the food was authentic. They went above what was expected to meet my spicy food need. I would highly recommend this excellent restaurant.

It has become our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. My always favorite is their vegetable quesadilla. The peppers, onions, etc., have been grilled just as I like them. Last week my husband had some kind of sauteed shrimp dish, and he loved it. We're originally from the SC coast, so our seafood standards are high. The margaritas are really... More

My boyfriend and I frequent this place! We sit at the bar- enjoy a beer and margarita with the traditional guacamole. Then proceed with whichever entree we are in the mood for. There are so many options which have all been delish! Especially the burritos roqueta! Overall a great relaxed place to dine.
