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

I followed the reviews and it was close, but this is an overrated restaurant for food. I might be a good place to take a date as the service is good and the affect "fancy" but the food is only ok an not worth the price. I could have gotten as good camerones for half the price at many other... More

I remember a couple of things about my visit to Jalisco. The great Margarita and the fresh guacamole dip prepared tableside. Of course, the mixed grill fajitas were great. I'm not certain it was worth a drive from Morgan Hill, but the food was good. Service and ambiance was great. For a Mexican cuisine restaurant, I'd return. And I don't... More

A cab driver suggested this place to me on my first night in Watsonville. Because of the proximity to my hotel, I walked over. I decided to sit at the bar to watch MNF and was promptly greeted and served a beer. After looking over the menu, I chose the rib-eye steak, which looked to be pounded flat. Everything on... More
