The real deal....

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... read 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!!

Had a great time because we were with our friends. The food was ok I guess. Not up to what we thought it would be. Drinks were good however. We always try different places but probably won't be back. A little overpriced....

We have been to this restaurant many times since they first opened in Blue Springs. For the first few visits we were only one of maybe five tables during standard dinner hours. As the word spread about the quality and authenticity of the food served more often than not there began to be a wait for an available table, especially... More

There had been a tornado within 10 miles of the restaurant. The restaurant was down to 1 waiter, who I didn't feel was particular attentive (there were maybe 5 other parties, much smaller groups than ours). We had to ask for anything we wanted. The waiter was friendly, and when we asked him, he would eventually bring what we asked... More

After reading good reviews, we were looking forward to eating here. We visited on a Sunday afternoon. The atmosphere was good and personnel were attentive and friendly. The food, however, was another matter. Chips were thick and salsa was watery, with chunks of green onion. We had ground beef chimichangas. The filling was soupy; the refried beans spread out all...

Great food and service, authentic cuisine with a wide selection of options. The brothers that own it are always helpful in trying new dishes and explaining how they are prepared and spice level. Sooo good.

Escape Americanized "Mexican" food! This is authentic Mexican food just like you'd find on a dining room table is Mexico (but Tex-Mex is available if that's what you want). We've eaten here several times and try something different each time. We've never disappointed and recommend it to everyone. Definitely worth the trip to Blue Springs.
