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

I visit this restaurant a couple of times per month for lunch as it is fairly close to where I work. Not anything out of this world but never a poor experience.

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!
