Located in downtown Watsonville. Staff was okay. Not fast not slow to seat is was the host. Chips were provided with a good variety of salsa. Wait staff was nor fast nor slow to take order and delivery. I ordered a plate that wasn't particular to anything exception or horribly bad. Bill settlement was somewhat reasonable in time. Overall average... More

This Mexican restaurant is close to home, so we eat here often. We love the vaulted ceilings with beautiful wood beams. We often order fajitas and split them ($15). It makes a very good meal that is very affordable! The servers are consistently attentive. You can't go wrong going to Jalisco's.

We ordered off the lunch specials menu; chile relleno, burrito, enchilada. Came with rice and beans, salsa, tomatoes and lettuce, guacamole, with sour cream. Chips and hot salsa come with the menus. The food was really good. Rice and re-fried beans were standard. My carne asada taco was served "wet"...was expecting a regular "dry" style taco. But, it was good... More

Great evening at Jaliscos, starting with the mariachi band and friendly staff. Nice menu, with all the usual choices with some interesting options. We enjoyed the seafood fajitas for four and there was plenty to go around. Lots of locals, which is always a good sign.

This place was recommended by the hotel front desk an our group was anxious to try Mexican food. Since I'm a Los Angeles native and of Mexican heritage, I tend to be more demanding with this cuisine. The chile relleno was pretty good...not too much batter. But their idea of a sope was disappointing....some shredded chicken and lettuce atop a... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Watsonville. The food is fabulous, the people friendly and the architecture quite lovely. Don't miss their guacamole made at the table!

Jalisco's is a Mexican restaurant in a mostly Hispanic town. As a lover of "real" Mexican food -- I do like it hot -- this would be a disappointment especially for those who "like it hot." However, the food is authentic and I would go there. The atmosphere is nice and the people are welcoming. However, they don't have any... More
