My family and I eat at El Jimador quite often. I would recommend it. Great food and fast service. There is plenty of seating so very rarely do we wait for a table. Nice place.

On our way through decided to try them out. Right off highway 63 a little. Our family tried the chimichanga, canes asada tacos, and camarones a la diablo. All were amazing. Portions were huge. The flavor was mouth watering. Definitely worth checking out.

The burritos were soggy and the bean filling was almost watery. As the Chimichanga, it was barely toasted let alone fried and the "grilled chicken" filling was awful, barely dog food quality. It is absolutely the last time I will ever order from El Jimador.
