Sherry has eaten at nearby El Jimador Mexican Restaurant, 1705 East Lamar Alexander Parkway, many times, but I had my first meal there yesterday. I prosecuted a guy who worked there in 2008, so I've avoided the place. I learned during my three and a half years at McDonald's as a teenager that one should not anger the people who serve you food. At any rate, I figured that particular defendant had probably moved on, and I did not see him there yesterday.
My first trip to El Jimador was a good one. The place was filled with people enjoying Cinco de Mayo, but the service was great, as was the food. It was a lot bigger inside than I thought, and it was quite noisy and festive. We paid about $30.00 for our supper. We are pretty loyal to Alcoa's Los Amigos and El Sazon, but as convenient as El Jimador is to our house, I'm sure we'll be back.
