We found the hotel on the web, read some of the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to try out Jalisco's. We found the staff very friendly. The meals we had were good to very good. They have made it a nice little restaurant. The price was good and we were not hungry when we left. Great location by the river.

Ate here with the wife on a recent trip. The food was Mexican Food, the people spoke Spanish, perhaps if I had spoken Spanish to the help the service would have been better! The staff was a little weak on their comprehension of English. The Bean Dip was very good, the salsa was weak, too few real tomatoes and too... More

Jalisco's is located right across from the Snake River Greenbelt so very easy to find and plenty of parking. We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere, the service was very good. I loved my chicken chimichanga and my husband really loved his burrito platter. Excellent rice and beans and really yummy salsa.

Went to dinner on a weekend night. The place was busy but we were served in a timely manner. The kids love the (complementary) chips with salsa and refried beans. They have an extensive menu and everyone found a dish they enjoyed. I love Enchiladas with mole sauce (two chicken) and didn't realize they served one (hadn't eaten here in... More

We've now eaten at both locations for Jalisco's (17th and on the Snake River)--food is tasty and well prepared. The staff is attentive and helpful when making selections. Prices are good and you get plenty of food.

We ate at the Jalisco's #2 on River Parkway. We were traveling from California. I really liked this restaurant, some of the best Mexican food that I've had in a long time. Food was well seasoned, portions were large. If I lived in Idaho Falls this would be one of my favorite restaurants. Service was very good. Decor was cute.... More

This place is situated in a strip mall and can be hard to find if you are looking for it the first time. We found the experience to be average, the food was good but nothing outstanding. The Cadillac Margarita that I ordered was disappointing...a little tasteless with hardly any Grand Marnier.

My wife and I found this restaurant after looking at reviews on line. I had been to the game place next door and my wife to the dollar store in the shopping complex but we'd never tried this place. After reading all the reviews we decided to try it. I'm a diabetic and sometimes it can be difficult to find... More
