I have been eating at jaliscos since I moved here 8 years ago. The interior recently had a much needed face lift and it looks great. They added a fresh made tortilla station where you can even watch them make the fresh tortillas. The food is is always hot and fast. The shrimp cocktail is great and so are the... More

Delicious! Authentic Mexican food! Large portions, but the food is so good it disappears. Great service. Very busy during lunch. The place is a bit run down due to high traffic. Decor is nothing special. The food is great!

A large group of parents (16) needed a place to eat on short notice on a Saturday after a soccer tournament. Gave these guys a call (River Pkwy location) w/ short notice & they were more than happy to accommodate us. The service was fantastic. The menu was deep & diverse and the food was excellent. Great location too. Only... More

We have been to Jalisco's on 17th street many times (we usually go on Friday evening) so thought it was time for a review. First, there are two locations, 17th street (in a strip mall across from the Grand Teton Mall) is the one with a full bar, so they can make you a margarita there and offer various tequilas... More

Great service! Margaritas were good. Carnitas were good as were the tostadas Ceviche. We especially liked the bean dip with the chips. We would recommend this place to anyone who likes Mexican food and a walk along the river.

Great Meal! So much food! There are 2 locations, which we didn't know, so we had a bit of trouble finding it when it was very easy to find! Service was great, portion size is large, had a great margarita! Very well prepared!

We live in CA and travel quite a bit, so Mexican food is something we eat frequently. We stayed in the general area and after many outdoor activities our 12 year old discovered there was a mall within an hours drive. After shopping, we stopped at Jalisco's for lunch during the week. I ordered the #1 lunch special (cheese enchilada... More

As a vegetarian, I worry about hidden lard in authentic Mexican places. The waiters here are very knowledgeable about how their dishes are prepared, and they have substitutions available for both the refried beans and the rice. The salsa was fresh and flavorful. I had lunch here with my family and all of us were pleased with our meals, and... More

We walked into the restaurant as they were getting ready to close. There were still patrons finishing their dinner. We aren't from around here, we were hungry and this place looked open. The staff was very accommodating and allowed us in. The carne asada tacos were savory and perfectly spiced. Their salsas were spicy with great flavor. I can see... More

I grew up in New Mexico and am picky about my Mexican food. Jalisco serves food cooked well and has great service. They have a quite a varied menu and have never had a bad meal there. I was there last earlier this week and had a burrito as dad my father. My son had tacos. I forget what the... More
