El Jinete won the informal "Favorite" Mexican Restaurant poll

El Jinete won the informal "Favorite" Mexican Restaurant poll

Because El Jinete in Centerville/Snellville won our informal "Favorite" Mexican Restaurant poll recently, I had to check it out for myself.

El Jinete is in the Ingles of Centerville shopping center, located at the corner of Bethany Church Rd and Centerville Highway. The address is 3303 Centerville Hwy # 7, Snellville, GA 30039.  The shopping center looks kind of dingy and run-down, but based on all the comments in our My Snellville Blog Facebook group that El Jinete was good, I considered that this restaurant might be a hidden jewel.

The restaurant was very clean and had a nice smell when we entered.
