I have passed by this restaurant for years and never even gave it a second thought. Wow what a huge mistake. I started going to lunch here and have been kicking myself ever since. They have the best lunch specials. Great food and prices. I can't believe it took me so long to find this gem.

Consistently good...quiet with a traditional mex-American menu. We do take out on occasion. Good value with typically large portions- great leftover s

Nothing to rave about. Typical Mexican food, that you can get at any average Mexican restaurant. The only good thing I can say is if you want average Mexican food you can eat here because the parking situation is better than downtown Grass Valley

We have a few Mexican/tex mex restaurants in our area. I have discovered Plaza Jalisco just in the last 3 weeks...I have been back 3 times with different friends turning them on to their delicious food! Everything I have tried has a true down past the boarder flavor. I would highly recommend this place!! It's a tiny hole in the... More

I really like the refried beans you get before your meal. I also enjoy the veggie fajitas. Service is ok, prices are ok, not very much parking but that's ok. Very simple but good.

A gem of a spot. The food here is excellent!! The El Pastor is amazing! I hesitated on the 5th star only because for how good it is... It would be great to have better ambiance.

I am so happy we found this place. This was not a place we chose by convenience or portions. We go for the great food. We never eat Mexican food any place else. Built by reputation, you can never go wrong.

Ok, I understand Christmas week can be busy for restaurants, but I would think restaurants would know that too. I took my visiting family (8 people, including 3 little kids) o a Tuesday night. We made reservations. The only thing that was ready for us was our table. After waiting about 20 minutes the waitress finally graced us with her... More

Not only is this the best in the Grass Valley - Nevada City area, but it is competitive with other Mexican restaurants in the region as far as authentic food. The best dishes are seafood oriented. My favorite is a shrimp dish with white tequila sauce (camarrones del playa) Delicious! We go here again and again when we are in... More
