Have never went here for anything but lunch but that has always been fantastic! I always try to eat something different and haven't had anything that I didn't enjoy. My one meal I eat more than any other is their beef fajitas. FANTASTICO

El Jinete's is an excellent, fairly priced Mexican restaurant. The restaurant is clean and decorated very attractively. The owner is always present and takes pride in his business.

We make a point to take a large group from church here @ least one time a month. They are always very accommodating to us all. The food is amazingly delicious, authentic Mexican food.
