This restaurant is terrible. If you enjoy smoking while eating or being in a smoke filled restaurant and smelling like that after dining out, this is your place! I was shocked to see that they still allowed smoking inside of the restaurant. I will never return.

We eat at el Jimador almost weekly. It is authentic Mexican, and the staff is amazing. They get to know their regular customers, are polite and friendly, and quick. If you are craving Mexican, this is where you need to go.

We went in the evening for dinner at the recommendation of a "local"; the crowd was very small and the restaurant (around 7 PM was pretty much empty...which perhaps should've been an indicator of what was to come); if you smoke you are fine here 'cause that's what you smell when you walk in; if you don't go somewhere else,...

Fantastic, hands down best mexican I've ever had. I was shocked that Cantina Bravo was ranked above el jimador. That place is a joke in terms of portion, quality, and value

Authentic Mexican food for sure. Everything is good and they serve fast. Price is fair. Recommended if you are into Mexican food in the area.

Two of my colleagues and I went there on a recommendation from another colleague of ours. Needless to say the food was very bland. I enjoyed the Mexican grill down the road much better. I won't be going back there.

El Jimador has some of the best Mexican food in the area and a very large selection of food. They are able to accommodate large groups of people all the way down to a single person. It was really easy to show up with a group of my friends and find a place to sit. Not all restaurants have a... More
