If you're in the area and like Mexican food, pick this place. The food is more authentically Mexican that's not as Americanized as the other local places. It's really delicious. Best in the region.

We have gone to El Jimador several times, but today my wife and I decided to order El Molcajete. It was one of the best meals of my entire life. No exaggerating. I very rarely write reviews, but here I am. It was an emotional...More

Tried El Jimador because of the Tripadvisor rating and the fact that we were traveling with three boys aged 10-14 and real fine dining was not an option. We were not disappointed. As nearly everyone with culinary experience notes, finding good Mexican fare in New...More
