Pay at the counter, grab your beer and pick your seat. I prefer a booth so I can read my paper without being intrusive. Great little little tacos and the Armadillo is not to passed up, more than enough to share. If I could make a change l would have chips/salsa be served automatically instead of ala carte.

I read the reviews before selecting a Mexican restaurant for Saturday night and Taco Jalisco sounded good. However, none of the reviews mentioned that this is the type of restaurant where you read the menu off the wall, place your order, get a number, and then go find yourself a place to sit. When the food is ready they bring... More

They seriously have the best enchiladas I have ever had. The sauce is to die for. I highly suggest trying them out. You will not be disappointed. It is rather small in there so either go early before the rush or take it to go.

My friend and I tried this little place that is tucked into a small shopping L, off the main street through the newer part of Truckee after an afternoon of fishing the river nearby. We each had 3 tacos: one each fish, carnitas, and al pastor. We agreed all were outstanding, but we thought the fish was tops. These are... More

Hi Folks, Tacos Jalisco is the proverbial "Hole in the Wall" place. Terrific Authentic Mexican food in a strip mall. Great flavors, reasonable prices, and nice people. No white table clothes here, kinda funky but, just good food. Found this place after a day of skiing and have been back many times at all times of the year. When I... More

This was a friendly and authentic Mexican restaurant set back from the main road in a shopette and it didn't disappoint our group. It's small but handled our group of 7 since it was a slower time. You order, pay, and then grab your own seat. We had garlic shrimp with veggies, and a few different kinds of burritos. Their... More

This is the best taqueria in Tahoe. The food is delicious and I've never had a bad meal here. There is not really wait-staff, but the register staff is always friendly and helpful. It is also great for takeout. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but definitely worth exploring. The prices are completely reasonable and I love the... More

We have been coming here for years. Great doing place after a day of skiing in the winter or any time. Great value plus the bonus of great food. Family of 4 can easily eat here without breaking the bank.
