For under $15, a credible steak is difficult to find these days. But, Real Jalisco delivers a very flavorful, creative, reasonably sized one (pounded thin - this is by no means the monster Americano 16 oz. version) - The Mariposa Jalisco. It's topped with Oaxaca cheese, peppers, onions, and nice tomatillo sauce. There appear to be some other "off the... More

The food was good but tasted a little different. I think they go for a more authentic flavor vs the americanized Mexican food we are used to. Nothing was very spicy but I think they want it that way so you can taste the food. No draft beer, only bottles. I found it a little pricey as Mexican restaurants go.... More

A friend had seen Real Jalisco on "Check Please" and made the suggestion. As luck would have it, we found a Groupon, so we thought it would be a great way to try. We arrived late afternoon/early evening and there were only a few diners, so we thought the service would be great and the food nice and fresh. Our... More

Restaurant was too warm. Margaritas were below average and a bit too tart. Chips and salsa were ok but have had much better. Wife got the vegetable fajitas that she could not eat as they were heavily seasoned and had a very unusual flavor that tasted similar to curry powder. Wondering if the kitchen made a mistake. My taco and... More

We asked our waiter about a good chicken item, he recommended two options. We decided to go with both and we're impressed. The chicken is thin and tender. It had a great taste. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. The chips and salsa unfortunately were ordinary. The salsa was chunky, but not much flavor.

My husband & I eat at here at least once a week. Usually we order take out. My favorite meal is a cheese enchilada, tamale with rice & beans. I also get guacamole and chips. My meal is always correct. This is not a Tex-Mex type of food. It is very, very good. My rice has small pieces of carrots... More

In a word this place is delicious! I have been here several times and have not once ordered off the menu. I just tell the server if I want chicken, steak, pork or shrimp and they surprise me.

They added fish tacos to the menu for lent..should have known when the waiter could not comment on the fish tacos (FTs) since he had never tried them. The FTs were moist but almost tasteless as if the fish had been steamed. The steak tacos, appetizer and maragaritas were very good as usual.
