Good flavors and good service. Food was not hot enough. The cheese inside my enchiladas was not fully melted and my husband's fajita plate was barely warm. Salsa was alright, nothing special.

Was lured by TA hype but left a bit disappointed. Prices are reasonable and the service was spot on......... and the food while good, was a bit greasy. My dates' Fajita Taco Salad had a deep pool of run off from the meat and the shell was old and hard as a rock.

My burrito was fine and the rice and beans tasty but the overall experience is average at best.

We pass thru the Shreveport area every 6 to 8 weeks on business and this past time we happened to be thru on Mother's Day. We picked El Jimador because of it's reviews here on TA. Thanks, you, as usual did not let us down. They were very busy but because it was just the two of us we were seated quickly. Menu is extensive, chips and salsa are very good and I was given a complementary queso dip because it was Mother's Day. Entrees were great and very filling. The live music was a special treat and very amusing too. They were making all the Mom's feel special and even got a special piece of cake too. Did not leave hungry at all. Thanks to the staff at El Jimador for a lovely Mother's Day lunch.

My wife and I stumbled across El Jimador while reading trip advisor and searching for new Mexican restaurants. This one is a little off the beaten path, but well worth the journey. The building appeared to be new construction, and the interior was well-appointed., We both ordered the "Special Dinner" which consists of much of the food offerings, including chili relleno, meat taco, beef (shredded) enchilada, tamale, quesadilla, guacamole and rice and beans. The food was very good, with the spices being different in each dish. While we waited for the food, we had their excelent salsa and chips, and ended up ordering a take-out of the salsa it was so flavorful, but not too spicy. (We like it hot, most people do not.). The meal, although a complex offering, was out and on our table in less than 10 minutes. Javier, our server, was efficient and courteous. We will definitely return, and the sooner the better.

We went for the first time tonight (busy Friday night). We were seated right away. Drinks and appetizers brought quickly. Great frozen strawberry margarita. Had the chicken chimichanga with white queso on top, which was SO good! Great Service. Family friendly. Will definitely be back!!
