Good food, great decor and reasonable prices, my kids tell me the Margaritas are pretty good. I like the Chimis best and the chips and salsa have just the right amount of kick with out total fire alarm.

I've been to El Jimador four or five times, and it is consistently lacking in taste, and service. I see no reason to go back.

We went on the recommendation of a local resident and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh, tasty, quick and they fed us so much we had leftovers for 2 more days.

Poor service, poor food, atmosphere is cliche' and annoying. However, it is very affordable. I recommend carry out.

We ate here with a large family group! The service was great! The margaritas were delicious! We were served a lot of food for the money, so it was a great value! I would go back for sure!

We first visited El Jimador in June, 2006. We found it to be pleasant, excellent food, good service and very clean. Unfortunately, our visit tonight was vastly different. Our initial observation was the lobby worker ogling passing women. We were seated at a table that had not been properly wiped down. The service was fair, the food came out relatively... More
