We've visited several Mexican restaurants in Osage Beach.El Jimador is the best we've found, but it's still average by our standards. The ingredients are OK, but no spices in the kitchen. Use the spice bottles at the table to get some flavor.

The food is delicious and so many choices. The service was excellent. Make sure you are hungry when you go because the portions are very large.
