Ordered Flautas de pollo (chicken flautas) and they were over cooked. Tortilla was hard chicken was dry.

We moved here last year and apparently the restaurant had just changed management, per the sign, and we had an excellent meal and drinks. Being from Atlanta, we had access to good authentic Mexican food and we sought that here when moving to Lake Keowee. This is pretty close and we have become regulars. Food is very good as well as the service. Prices are reasonable. If you like Mexican fare, El Jimador is your best choice in the area.

Good service and good food. Not a lot of parking and very popular at lunch.

Full menu with several house specials. You won't be displeased.

We were just passing through town and stopped at El Jimador to eat dinner. We were able to get a table right away during a busy dinner time. The restaurant wasn't super clean but it wasn't super dirty either. Our service was the same, not super great and not super bad either. The biggest frustration we had was the language barrier while trying to order and talk to our waiter. We take part of the blame because we have some picky eaters and make it more difficult than just pointing to something on the menu. We had to get up from our table twice to ask for refills/napkins/etc. The food was great!!! It definitely made the shortcomings with the service we received worth it If we lived in the area we would be frequenting this place often.
