Classic Mexican food

Really good food from the Jalisco region of Mexico. Unlike the "texmex" food we eat around here and you won't be disappointed.

If you are looking for Mexican food with a more authentic twist, this is it. Great food you don't find at other places. Fine margaritas too!

No, it wasn't as cheap as Taco Bell nor was it the flavorless dog food served up by the local chain Mexican food joint. Real Jalisco was outstanding, flavorful well presented Mexican fare at a reasonable price. The Presentation was well thought out and the service was excellent. Needless to say we will be back.

This is a great truly authentic Mexican restaurant. They have several specialty dishes that I haven't seen at any other restaurant. Their Baked fish with cilantro sauce is fantastic. The owners are awesome and will customize any dish. I have even called ahead and ordered my favorite appetizer and they have it ready when we walk in. Try it, you... More

I eat here about every other week, usually at lunch but also with family and friends for dinner. The restaurant is comfortable and classy, good service & prices. What earns the stars is the depth of the menu. There are many dishes from all over Mexico, very good sides & a full service bar. Sauces tend to be hot, which... More

I really enjoyed the food. The service was excellent! The food was real Mexican you would find in Mexico not tex-mex. I really liked it I got the seafood plate and it was wonderful.

This was a nice change from the standard "taco or burrito or enchilada" restaurant. They have some interesting options on the menu that are quite taste. I would recommend the fundido appetizer. It was delish. Also, the dish with pablano peppers and a cream sauce with cranberries (can't remember the name!!). We were there for lunch and did not have... More

First off...Ask for Daniel - best service by far! Ask him to make you a margarita...he has several up his sleeve. Nice atmosphere, clean, friendly staff. Our standard order is Enchiladas de Espinacas, extra regular enchilada, a side of Vegetales al Ajillo. Top notch food. Real ingredients. Kudo's to the chef! "Not the typical Mexican Food down the street."
