This place is wonderful. To start are the warm chips with phenomenal home made salsa. Great prices with a large portion size and a menu that had a huge variety! Oh, and the house margarita is so good!

Now under new name at corner of Maple and So Willow, we enjoyed some of the best nachos ever at the friendly bar (washed down with Cabo Wabo margaritas). Well seasoned, just the right amount of cheese, and tender chicken. Restaurant area very busy with families and couples. They will be opening the patio in late May. We will go back soon for what looked like many delicious dinner options...hands down better that the other Mexican offerings in this area. Ample parking to the left on Maple St.

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.

Went to have lunch and discovered they had closed and reopened down the street under a new name. They are now called La Fiesta Mexico @ 300 South Willow with same menu.

The restaurant is about to move to another location on South Willow, so perhaps the menu/atmosphere will change. At its current location, we found El Jimador to have the most expansive menu of any Mexican or Tex-Mex restaurant we had been to. The food was very good. The atmosphere was nice, though a bit too much kitch Mexican art (e.g. our table had a mural of Montezuma, or some other Aztec warrior, rescuing--or perhaps abducting--a woman). We also liked that the waiter could give a good description of how spicy a dish would be (some in our party like their food very spicy and others not at all)

I definitely go to the restaurant again.
