We sat on the patio. Best fajitas I've had in a long time.

“Finally - an authentic Mexican Restaurant in Kalamazoo”
Reviewed 21 May 2011

I go back here every chance I get - although the atmosphere is not the best -- they sure have tried with the facilities that they have!! Truly the best Mexican food - and GREAT friendly service. Great lunch specials if you are able to make it for lunch on a weekday!

“De-li-cious”
Reviewed 5 May 2011

El Jimador is about 2 miles away from my house and if it were up to my husband, it would be the only place we went to. I love love love the chimichangas and the fajitas. Generous portions and very affordable. Only downside is the decor and depending on your server, the language barrier.
