    We have frequented El Jimador since they opened during the pandemic. Chris and his staff have always delivered excellent service, food and drinks. We visited two times in the last week before we moved to Arizona, both pictured here. Once with other Sycamore business owners and once with family when the The Mariachi Band was playing, which was a wonderful addition on our last visit. They saw my brother’s Sox hat and sang a rendition of take me out to the ball game. Going to miss this place!

    We had a great experience! Our family was celebrating a birthday (don't forget to mention it if you are celebrating - free 🍰 or 🥃) and we clearly chose the right venue. Beautifully decorated space!! It was a nice sunny day and they had the front windows opened. Our server was friendly and attentive. Our food and drinks were delicious. Highly recommend the table side guacamole. We were also fortunate to experience the live music!

    Luckily I ordered the NIU nachos with my order which was really good but paying $12 for 1 chicken tamale with no sauce is crazy. Here I am thinking I’m getting what’s listed on the menu which is 3 tamales for $12. Be careful ordering online for takeout. I definitely feel like I was scammed. I always order the tamales when dining in and have never had this issue.

    Amazing experience and the best Mexican food in the DeKalb area! Huge selection and even some larger entres to share like we had, the Molcajete!!

    Outstanding service and food. We went on a busy Saturday (worth the short wait) and are still talking about our experience the following week. The burritos are platter sized and loaded with tender, flavorful shredded chicken. We never had an empty basket of chips thanks to how friendly and attentive all the servers are there. We're already looking forward to our next visit!
