Great location

The service was good, the food was average, and the location is great. Kids menu is super cheap on Sundays- that's a bonus for traveling families!

The waiter we had was very polite and nice and knowledgeable about the food. The food was very good as well as the drinks that we ordered. The place was clean and orderly. Would definitely recommend this place.

This restaurant boasts a stellar location across from the iconic falls in the heart of downtown Idaho Falls. We ate lunch there with a resident of the town and we found the food to be spot on. I had the shrimp ceviche tostadas, loaded with tangy citrus infused shrimp. My husband enjoyed one of their vegetarian options, mushroom and spinach... More

The food was fine but nothing to write home about. It seemed to be an average American-Mexican restaurant.

This place rocks. I don't give 5 stars too easily but this little place earned it. 4 adult diners. 2 on the picky side. 430 on a Saturday. Close parking. Very clean everything. I am a clean freak and always check the bathroom, kitchen, and service stations, If possible. Immaculate. Server was on it. Prompt and courteous. Kept drinks full... More

We are from Colorado and had no idea where to eat while in Idaho Falls. A friendly man from the Snow Eagle Brewery and Grill referenced us to Jalisco's because they were full. Upon arriving at Jalisco's an off-putting smell greeted us. We almost left because it smelt so bad! But the friendly staff greeted us warmly and seated us... More

Great food, generous portions, great prices, friendly service and fast! I love this place and recommend it to everyone. There are not many places that have it all but jaliscos does. And as an added bonus.....you have a beautiful view of the falls.

I was greeted by a friendly staff. Table was immediately catered with bean dip, salsa and chips. I had the combo with a cheese enchilada and shredded beef tostada. The food was good and freshly prepared. They only reason I didn't give it my highest rating I'd because the salsa was not as good as other salsas I've had. This... More
