You Won't Find Enchiladas de Nopalitos or 'Corn Mushroom' on Many Menus

In my experience, which is admittedly limited, true Mexican food can be hard to find in the United States. We are used to getting some form of meat with some form of tortilla, maybe onion and peppers, all flavored like chili, and topped with shredded cheese. But real Mexican food is so much more... read more

I've found this restaurant several years back and it has been one of my favorites ever since. I love the fact that the menu is authentic. If you are unsure about what you want, you can ask the waiter and they will offer suggestions or you can tell them what you like and the chef will make a dish to... More

We enjoyed our meal here as we were traveling through the KC area. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive and the meal choice not your typical Tex-Mex stuff. We had the Chicken Mola Burritos and found them very good.

We had a large party and I was really looking forward to trying this new restaurant. Do yourself a favor and take your money elsewhere. Our party was there for over 1 hour before everyone got their food. Some people were halfway done eating before the others got their food. Don't know what kind of chunks were in the salsa,... More

If it's authentic Mexican food that you want, this place is for you. The menu is creative and provides a wide variety of flavors. This is not the standard rice, beans, and whatever you can dream up underneath melted cheese and watery ketchup type of place. The service is good, and if you have questions they have answers. They know... More

This is NOT TexMex. This is real authentic Mexican food. The stuffed poblano peppers with walnut sauce are to die for. Nothing you've ever had before. Not spicy, but amazingly flavorful. This is not just an Eastern Jack destination, but a Midwest place to go. Don't miss it!

Real Jalisco is a little pricey but the food is fresh and taste amazing!! The fajitas are a fav next to the mole poblano! Not many places can do the mole right, Real Jalisco does it perfect! Salsa is great. Margarita martini is amazing!!
