I personally like family owned businesses over eating at a chain to give to the local economy. Jalisco's has a huge variety of more authentic Mexican food. The prices range and offer something for everyone. Everything I have eaten there has been awesome from the tamales to the specialties. I had lamb borrego which was sooo delicious and unique. It...

This was my second lunch and I was again delighted with the generous portions. The chips and salsa is served with a refried bean hot dip that is yummy! I remembered that the portion size is very large so I ordered the black bean soup and it was delicious. Last visit I was equally impressed by the authenticity of Jalisco,... More

If your the type of person that can deal with awful service then this is your place. I was apart of a party of 6 and it took exactly 1 hour to be served food. At the time we were seated there were only 8 other people in the restaurant. I was able to order a mojito 25 mins after... More

I had a chicken burrito which was very good and well presented. The service was very good, quick and courteous. The interior is nice. I will go back.

We have been there many times and really enjoy it! The food is always very good. They have a nice selection of Tequila too. People are welcoming, service is great. I love it.

A friend of mine recommended this place and I finally got there. On a Friday night at 7:00 it was basically empty. Three booths full, not a soul at the bar. Strange for a Friday. Chips, salsa and bean dip were tasty. Waitress was attentive and refilled as needed. Drinks were disappointing. I had the coco rita, which had lumpy... More

I like this restaurant. I think its mostly authentic and yes service can be somewhat slow but isn't that how it is in many restaurants in Mexico? I like the varied menu and as someone who has spent a lot of time in various parts of Mexico, I find it quite authentic.

We eat here about every 2-3 months. Food is good, service is solid, prices are average. We'd eat here more often, but the wait for food can get super long - I'm not sure why the kitchen gets so backed up, but it happens more often than not. Last night we were seated in a mostly empty restaurant, we ordered... More

We've driven by here a few times and said we should stop, but we never did until today. I wish we had done it sooner because the food was excellent. It's authentic style Mexican and not a "Tex-Mex" type of place. The prices are moderate, but the portions are large. The meal started with fresh tortilla chips and salsa, along... More
