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."

After reading several positive reviews, we had a group of four for dinner. When we arrived, we were seated and served promptly. We ordered Cadillac margaritas, with specific ingredients, and were told "that's one of the "Specials" we make. When we watched the server make the cocktails, he did not make them as requested. When we tried to address this,... More

We now go here nearly exclusively when we want good Mexican. It is authentic, so may not be what you are expecting. We played it safe the first time with taco and enchilada platters. But, then tried the pollo con crema. My husband and I both loved it. The pollo marinado ala parillo is great also. Now, we don't want... More

We dine a Real Jalisco when we want really good mexican food. So many mexican restaurants in the metro area are nothing more than burritos covered with cheese whiz!. Real Jalisco has a broad menu. Every visit I try something new and have never been disapointed

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
