I visited El Jinete on a couple of occasions and both times came away unimpressed. The food lacks flavor and the prices seem expensive for lunch compared to others in the area. If you are desperate for a Mexican meal, El Jinete will do; However, there are two better places within 10 minutes.

There weren't many choices in the area , so we wound up here. We were promptly seated and business was brisk on a midweek evening - mostly families with children. Chips were good and salsa was okay. Our cheese dip had no flavor. I ordered the Yolandas, which are chicken enchiladas with "special sauce". Inquiring into the "special sauce", I... More

I will return often. Everything was fresh with excellent seasoning. The restaurant is clean, employees friendly and service oriented. I had a tamale-yummy, not dry with a taco and nachos.

Excellent, time-tested Mexican fare. The California Burrito is exceptional & easily makes 2 meals. Service is always courteous & helpful.

Since the first thing you get at a Mexican restaurant is chips and salsa, I'll start there. The chips were warm and the salsa was spicy and good. Our party of four ordered: * cheese quesadillas * quesadilla with chicken and spinach * mixed fajita dinner * tacos de carne Asada I got the tacos, and they were only so-so.... More

We are visiting Clarksville for a week and decided to try this restaurant We were seated promptly and were given a basket of chips and salsa. Chips were good, they were served warm. Salsa tasted like it came out of the jar. Not fresh at all. Two of us had the frajitas and they were fine. Nothing spectacular. Two of... More

We love El Jinete. Usually go on Sundays after church or get take out. Son had Carne Azada, FIL had steak ranchero, MIL had chicken soup, I had Tommy's salad. All were excellent. Very clean. Great staff.
