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.

Had a platter that gave me a great meal that filled me up with tasty food! A very good value for the money I paid and the service was very helpful and efficient!

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.

The food might have been better if it was warm and the margaritas were terrible. The servers didn't know the menu and were not very friendly.

We're always happy with our visits here. The food is delicious, parking is reasonable, and the service friendly. Popularity makes it pretty busy at times, but the staff keeps it moving well.

Food is delicious. We've tried many dishes and they are all good but the fajitas are now our favorite. The portions are huge so it gives you plenty of leftovers for additional meals. We choose this location over the other because the staff is more...More
