Very unassuming from the outside, El Jinete has great food. The service is fast and efficient and they have excellent guacamole and salsa. I ate there 3 times in the week I was in Keyser and enjoyed every meal.

Service is the best. Food is good. It's simple and priced reasonably. The music is background volume so you can still talk. I go there when I haven't seen a friend in a while and we want to visit. There is plenty of seating and...More
