Located adjacent to the AMPM market and within the Arco gas station. While you are getting gas, stop here and get a bite to each; believe me, it satisfied my munchies! I did not know when I stopped for gas that I would welcome eating at this hot Mexican eatery; my burrito was 'the best 420 munchie.' Service is quick;... More

CaliforniaFellow is right, the bad reviews are nonsense, coming from inexperienced Mexican food eaters. Whether you're staying in town or driving through, it's the perfect place to stop. Staff is awesome, prices are cheap, good portions, and the food is incredible! I had the super chicken burrito, and my girlfriend had a chicken/rice/bean platter. Both were amazing! Quality meat, prepared... More

We had tasty enchiladas dinners here (chicken and cheese with green chili sauce). The only thing off were the beans which were thin, nearly soupy and an odd color, but they tasted okay. Friendly service, decent value for $. It is attached to the gas station so expect a fast food atmosphere.

Quick and well prepared. I have no idea what the negative reviews are all about. I am an expert on Mexican food, and this is MUCH BETTER than one would expect to find in a building attached to a gas station. Cheap and served with class by a VERY attentive waiter. I would definitely eat here again

The sign out front says "the best Mexican food in town." Nothing could be farther from the truth. Do NOT eat here--go to Taco Bell. The enchiladas were very small, frozen, and tasteless. The chips were stale. The burrito was cold. My wife's beans and rice were barely warm. Do not waste your money on this place. I have eaten... More

This little joint claims to be the best Mexican Food in Willits, and it lives up to its name. When I moved to Willits I was deeply disappointed at the lack of good Mexican restaurants. There are several, but they all serve what I'd call Americanized Mexican food. Having lived in Mexico, my tastes prefer something more authentic. Jalos lives... More

We passed through the town and stopped by this place to get something to eat and we ended up eating a little and then go somewhere else. Prices are ok, but the food was cold and didn't look very appealing and the lady serving us didn't even bother to look up. We are not really picky since we're traveling around,... More

"Best Mexican Food in Town" is what this restaurant claims. We were just passing through, so we don't know about other Mexican restaurants in Willits, but the food was very good and at a very reasonable price. Taqueria Jalos shares a building with a convenience store and gas station, so nothing fancy there. It's more of a fast food place.... More
