Consistant food, prices have gone up

Tacos Jalisco is a staple in Truckee for consistently good food and friendly service, has been for years. It's been awhile since we've been here and we discovered as rent prices go up, so do food prices. It's no longer a great cheap eats place, (was surprised to see $12.00 items on the menu) but... read more

Always delicious, y siempre muy típico, I first discovered Tacos Jalisco more than 15 years ago, and they have never failed to impress, and fill me with delicious food. My buddy Dan-O and I hit Jalisco hard this past week, three times so far. The habanero sauce reminds you the next day of the feast from the night before. I... More

Interesting collection of dishes including deep fried lightly battered and scored whole fish with taco fixings, carne asada, meat and vegetarian burritos! All quite good quality and quantity but not exceptional! Friendly service and reasonable prices! A worthwhile stop in Truckee!!

Best Mexican Food around! Always really great food and service is excellent. When you walk up to the place in the corner of the shopping center you really wonder. But the food at Tacos Jalisco is real Mexican nothing fancy but good.. It's real Mexican and all the locals love it. They do get busy for lunch and dinner. Maybe... More

Not bad atmosphere. No chips and salsa unless paid for. I had the Chicken taco which was OK, but my daughter had the Carne Asada salad bowl and there was a lot of grissle---yuck!

After reading other reviews we chose to try Tacos Jalisco take out. After all this cuisine is hard to get totally wrong. The line was going through the door and the menu appears to be broad. I ordered a smothered chicken burrito and my husband the street tacos, both our go-to's as they are difficult to get wrong. Ours was... More

If you want simple and quick taquaria food then you need to hit this place in Truckee. Note, they also have one in Northstar and Kings Beach. Taco's are always a good choice but this is one of the only places in Truckee to get a real California burrito. Prices are affordable and its the real deal if you like... More

I always enjoy my meal here, especially the street tacos. Yesterday I had the Garlic Shrimp - they were a little bland, but I did have to take it to go and eat on the run, so I know that isn't always ideal. Their carnitas are amazing and be careful with their homemade Habanero salsa ;). Service is always very... More

Stopped for a quick lunch on a road trip. Food was prepared pretty quickly. Guacamole was so-so, something was lacking-- like salt or spice, or maybe both. Tacos were alright, meat was a bit dry. Bean, rice, cheese burrito was good.

The food was ok. It seemed bland and the red enchilada sauce almost had a bar b que taste to it. My husband and son enjoyed the burritos but added hot sauce to it. You order when you walk in and then they bring it to your table. Chips and Salsa are $2 something and the salsa is like a... More
