Great meal

We were seated and served our chips right away. The salsa was delicious. We ordered and got our food promptly. I had one tamale and a chicken enchilada. I am not too crazy about onions just because they give me heart burn. I didn't have to worry about that and really enjoyed the food. The beans and... read more

Been going to both Jalisco's for years. The food and service are both great and usually very consistent. Numerous items on the menu are excellent, others are great. The salsa is also great. The Nachos Jalisco is excellent.

My husband and I always split a burrito because it is too big for one to eat but we love it! Usually have beer with tomato juice. The service is excellent. I also like the tostada with ground beef.

We were very disappointed as this place has good reviews and was recommended to us by someone living in IF. I had a chimichanga and it was terribly bland. The other person dining with me smelled their burrito because they were concerned by its off putting smell. The place is also not very clean. Will not be returning.

Based upon the high reviews this restaurant received we had lunch here the other day. I ordered a pollo type entree (can't remember the exact name) and was disappointed because of its lack of flavor. My intuition told me to try the carne asada (which I believe is an entree that's pretty hard to screw up) but I went with... More

Jaliscos will not disappoint you. I love the food and the service. I am not a horchata fan but my wife is and she'll tell you it is the best she has ever had. I love the pollo fundido but with shredded beef. So delicious and the atmosphere is always fun. Now here is the best part, the cheese cake... More

We needed to get an early lunch before a flight and stopped here after seeing the ratings. We were very happy with our experience. They have a large lunch menu with a wide variety of choices, ranging in price from $5.99 - $7.99. In addition to the typical lunch combos, they have many other options like Pork Carnitas, Pollo a...

Great family restaurant, good food and big variety on menu. The employees try to get you to engage in conversation and make you laugh. Most of them have broken English but a least they try to learn English. They are great teaching you about what is in the different foods. I go back every two weeks
