Excellent all around visit. Started with cabbage salsa which has been the best that I have ever had. Then we moved on the chimichanga and Chili relleno. The chimichanga was not overly cooked and had a light and airy outer crust. Chili relleno was awesome too. Excellent and speedy service! Sorry, we didn’t get to try the margaritas or desserts but will definitely be stopping in next time we are in Montrose!

Family with 3 kiddos all ate here on a trip to Ouray from Texas. We really wanted some good Mexican food but this was not the place. Red enchilada sauce tasted like tomato sauce from the can, beans tasted from a can, and don't even mention the mole sauce, disgusting and we have had good mole before! Dad had nausea the entire night and even threw up early morning. We do not recommend this place!

El Jimadors is good Mexican food. Large serving sizes. Friendly staff. But, the prices are high. We ordered Medium margaritas - very delicious - but so large I couldn't even finish mine! (Have to admit it, but that is normally no problem! And I was thirsty!) But the drinks were soooo expensive! $13 each!!! Of course the price was not on the menu. And we are not in NYC or LA. So offering an over-priced "medium" drink is really not right. Decent food and nice staff raised the rating from a 2 to a 3. But be warned if you order a margarita!

Invitation to getting the order roll through a distracted server, the food was bland and insufficiently melted. The size items lacked any real flavor.

Bad options for vegans/vegetarians. They use frozen cubed peas and carrots for the filling of a burrito? Sauce wasn’t even good. My boyfriend got something with meat and he didn’t like it either. Couldn’t finish.
