"Delicious Food"

I absolutely loved the food! They have a great atmosphere and I would definitely come back again if I'm ever back in Watsonville. My only complaint is that our waiter absolutely had no personality whatsoever and frankly seemed bored just being there, but our busboy that we had did everything and... read more

My family and I usually eat a late lunch here after the 4th of July parade. We are never disappointed. Delicious grilled fish dishes and sizzling skirt steak fajitas with great corn tortillas, amazing prepared at your table, guacamole and they keep the chips a coming. A nice selection of beers and several flavors of margaritas. The atmosphere is lively... More

Great atmosphere, and great food. The guacamole is prepared at your table. All of the Mexican dishes are truly authentic, and the carne asada is probably the best I've had anywhere.

Our party of six had six different lunch plates, all combos and all excellent. I enjoyed a chicken enchilada and a chili reanllo, while others had the chicken combo plate and our one vegan found a good option. The chips and salsa are good, the drink service excellent, and the beans and rice exactly what one would expect. We have... More

Stumbled in here on a Friday night. What a treat, there was Mariachis band. Felt like I traveled to a foreign land. We were just passing thru and ended up staying to hear the terrific music. The food was top notch, some of the best Mexican food I've ever had, and Hugh portions. A must for all travelers in the... More

Tops in mariscos. Servers are attentive, know the menu and are friendly. Good atmosphere. Usually have flowers to purchase at your table if you are looking for extra points. Parking is a hurdle but the food and service make it worthwhile.

After coming to California 2 weeks ago, the first meal outside home was at Taqueria Jalisco. Living in Europe, it is much harder to find a really good Mexican restaurant then in the US. Jalisco is definitely one of my favourites when i am in the Salinas area. With my family living in Monterey, we usually take the time to... More

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
