Fantastic Mexican food!

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

We have been going to Plaza Jalisco for years. I think there may have been a period of time when they were having "issues" of some sort, and refused to take credit cards, and only took cash. You had to plan ahead if you wanted to go there, and hit the ATM first. The food was always good and the... More

I love Plaza Jalisco. As a So Cal native it is pretty hard to impress me with Mexican food. Plaza Jalisco has daily specials that are delicious but my favorite is when they have Lobster or crab enchiladas...they are amazing! I should have taken half home, as I could not breathe for hours it was so filling and rich! The... More

The service was very slow. The cost was average range. And, the food was average at best. I won't be returning anytime soon.

That may not be saying much, as there are only three Mexican restaurants in town, plus a couple of taquerias. But the food here is authentic and flavorful. I've never had a bad meal here. The place gets packed on weekend nights; you may want to make a reservation to ensure that you are seated promptly. The restaurant's atmosphere is... More

Cash only and was busy on a Sunday night. Understaffed so service was slow, but everyone friendly. Food was good but more or less typical for a Mexican restaurant. Serving size is large for sure.
