Visited this place with the family on the spur of the moment. Unlimited chips & salsa from "The Cart Girl". She comes around with the cart to give you more chips and refill your salsa bowl. Chips weren't warm but the salsa was tasty. Wife got the enchiladas with rice & beans. Daughter got a different enchilada dish. We also... More

We were seated quickly, server came right away for drink order. When she came back with the drinks, she answered our questions and took our food order. Food came out right away which made me think most of it was pre-made. The food was tasty. Not sure if we will return.

Mexican restaurant where they make delicious Margaritas and meals. The place is perfect to go with family, friends or partner. The place is very clean and cute. The employees are very attentive and helpful. We had a great time.

Be sure to stop in at El Jimador for their outstanding Mexican food selection! This restaurant has the fastest service in town. Great drink specials too! If you are looking for a vegetarian dish, this is the place to go. Eat in or take out....you will surely be back for more!

We have visited the area several times and it always had a large amount of cars in the lot. Decided to give it a try this weekend and we were pleasantly surprised. Upon entering, it took a few minutes to be acknowledged as they were VERY busy. By the time someone came over, there were about 6 groups of people... More

This is a great place for good Mexican food at a great price. Service is good. Tip - if you go on a Saturday night, go early and you will probably have a wait but worth the wait

Tried one more time to eat at El Jimador -- won't try again. Many tables open, no staff visible, no host. Multiple families waiting, some trying to find a host to find out what's going on, no where to sit or stand so I'm guessing that the food here is better than the services OR people were just too tired...

We've been here a handful of times and have never been wowed by what we saw or ate. It is ALWAYS busy! That is great for the owners and the business, but bad when they only have two servers. It took 10 minutes just for a server to hand us our to go order both times. Before we had kids,... More
