Kids friendly, kids menu, reasonable price (at least for lunch), fast and friendly staff. Delicious meal. About a mile away from the highway. I Would definitely come back with kids and friends.

My husband & I recently moved here from GA where Mexican restaurants are on every corner. We were pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant! The food was good. The service was good and fast! We will definitely be back!

The food was not flavorful. My husband had the chicken and beef burritos. He said the meat was bland and he would have rather had Taco Bell! I had the batter dipped chili relenos. They were they were tasty but I got them and the plate was hot but the inside was COLD! So that tells me they are not... More

Although the building itself is nothing special - somewhere between a family restaurant and a diner, but the food was hot and tasty. Complimentary nachos and salsa when they first seat you. Fast service. Yummy authentic mexican food. The mole sauce was delicious!

This was my second or third visit to El Jimador. The service, food, and price are all very good. The place is clean, nothing fancy, but not too run down. A draft beer was a reasonable $4. Most of the entrees come out on a HOT plate which I really like. I am not a fan of tepid food. The... More

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
