Stopped by for a late lunch. Everything was very tasty. I had the steak tapatio off of the lunch menu and my husband had the carne asada tacos. The soupy beans were amazing. The refried beans were good too. Service was also great!

We stumbled into this restaurant on the grand opening weekend and it's been a part of our lives every since. It is family owned and operated and is not your typical Mexican restaurant. Recipes represent the Jalisco Mexico region and many are family recipes. This was voted one of the best restaurants in Kansas City in 2014. This ain't Tex-Mex,... More

Restaurant decor is a bit dated and not overstated. Service was prompt and helpful. Never had an empty cup which I loved. My food was just ok but my husband really enjoyed his tacos. Salsa is ok. Very thin sauce with chunks of onion so not our favorite type. Serve Pepsi products which is not my preference. With fast and... More

Real Jalisco is pretty basic Mexican fare, but the selection is good. They even have Nopalitos, i.e. prickly pear cactus dishes. Mine was not bad, but not five star either, So like I said, average Mexican food.

FINALLY...I FOUND THEM. We found authentic glorious...wonderful...filling....street tacos. Wow. Thus place is wonderful. The wait staff were very helpful and informative. The food was as if right out of a street truck in Juarez. It was just very very good. A but difficult to see from the highway...but a great place to eat.

This was our second visit, the first was January of 2016 when we last traveled through Kansas City. Both times we had a great meal with very fresh and authentic Mexican food. This trip we arrived late on a Sunday night and the "Open" sign was being switched off as we got out of the car. We were noticed as... More

I live a few minutes away from this place, but when I crave authentic Mexican food, I usually head to Southwest Blvd. in Kansas City. However, when I want a REAL taco, I have found that Real Jalisco satisfies my desires. My favorite is the tacos Jalisco. They are deliciously crispy, with the perfect amount of melted cheese, and tender,... More

Real Jalisco is one of our favorite restaurants for authentic Mexican food in the KC area. So much better than bland Tex-Mex so prevalent in KC. Amazing flavors in their sauces! We’ve gone 1-2 times/month for a couple of years and have never had a bad meal (would go more if closer). Favorites include Miraplanes (steak or camarones), Mariposa Jalisco... More
