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.

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
