We visited El Jinete after a day hike and really enjoyed a good, simple meal with cold negra modelos (on draft). I had a soft chimichanga, my husband had a chicken chiptle he enjoyed.

Simple, fairly quick good mexican cuisine.

A really nice mexican restaurant...recommend the fish tacos or carnita. Sat outdoors and had a lovely time. Service and food were awesome.

We go to El Jinete about every other month. The service is decent, the food is good, and there is never a wait. Their Chicken Fajitas are a favorite of my wife's and the Burrito al Barzon is a favorite of mine.

I was looking forward to a good Mexican meal after reading reviews on trip advisor.
My wife and I were extremely disappointed.
Food was very generic and bland.
My wife's tamales were almost all cornmeal and no meat.
I got a sample of burrito with beef tips, poblano pepper and beef tostadas. Tostada was relatively tasteless. the meat on the tostada was plain hamburger with no seasoning.
Save your money and go someplace else

Very similar to the other Tex Mex restaurants in the city. If you like the typical Tex Mex that you get in Cincinnati, you will like this place.
