On our way through decided to try them out. Right off highway 63 a little. Our family tried the chimichanga, canes asada tacos, and camarones a la diablo. All were amazing. Portions were huge. The flavor was mouth watering. Definitely worth checking out.

The burritos were soggy and the bean filling was almost watery. As the Chimichanga, it was barely toasted let alone fried and the "grilled chicken" filling was awful, barely dog food quality. It is absolutely the last time I will ever order from El Jimador.

The food might have been better if it was warm and the margaritas were terrible. The servers didn't know the menu and were not very friendly.

We're always happy with our visits here. The food is delicious, parking is reasonable, and the service friendly. Popularity makes it pretty busy at times, but the staff keeps it moving well.

I guess this is Jeff city's version of Mexican. Lukewarm entrees, chile relleno still had stem and seeds inside and was uncooked so inedible. Beans slipped on the side very unappetizing. Had take away a few years ago at work and I see this place...More
