As a family we eat at and enjoy El Jimador on a weekly basis. The service is always friendly and attentive; the food is fresh and delicious; and the atmosphere is welcoming.

“Great food, great service.”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

Went with a few other adult family members for dinner a little less than a week ago and I found myself waddling out a full, happy camper with plenty in a box to polish off later. My Jimador Burrito that I ordered with pork as my meat choice arrived with a surprisingly long, wide, thick layer of guacamole that was outstanding. The green, creamy flavors really worked well with the rest of the dish...and the chips that came the table some pre-meal crunch. The rice and refried beans, which most places usually make both well, were also terrific. Service was terrific too.

“Mexican Dinner”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

I ordered the pork enchilada with green chili. The order came with refried beans & refried rice. The pork was in chunks rather than shredded. The meal is quite comparable to two of the other Mexican Restaurants in town that I have eaten. It is not often I am able to eat hot or spicy foods without consequences. So I do not order the hot stuff. The restaurant is a relaxed and family friendly place.

“Fresh Mexican food”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This small family restaurant on Townsend is unimposing, but the food is fresh, with a large variety of selections on the menu. I particularly liked the crunchy cabbage-based condiment offered in addition to the usual tomato-based salsa. Waitstaff attentive and friendly, drinks refilled promptly without asking. Prices very reasonable. The only negative is the limited parking.
