We have been coming here for years. The place isn't fancy but the quality of the food is good, the price is reasonable and it's yummy!

El Jinete has all of your favorites plus some specialties that you don't find at most typical Mexican restaurants. Their margaritas are Very Strong (you've been warned)!

Food is nothing to brag about. Great location to Movie Tavern. Great place to grab some beers and chips.

It's got all the usual items you would find at a local Mexican restaurant. The food is good, the service is just OK.

Not sure who has been rating restaurants in Roswell but El Jinete is by far one of the best and most consistent restaurants I have ever been to. We have eaten there since they opened and have never been let down. Great service and the food is always awesome. Coldest beer in town!

I have been vacating this business for 15 plus years and it is not what it used to be. Food is lousy and over priced, the restaurant is filthy and the staff just plain rude. Find me down the street at Willy's where it is cleaner, fresher, better and friendlier.

We had a nice dinner with friends at El Jinete; two of us ordered frozen margaritas and two had a glass of red wine (cabernet) to drink. Their frozen margaritas are probably the best we have ever had; very tasty and well made. The wine glasses were delivered full to the top. Their homemade salsa has a nice bite to... More
