Jacky's has become my favorite restaurant in town! There is a huge difference between Mexican restaurant and Jacky's Guatemalan style food! The fajitas can't be beat! The steak is so tender and full of flavor! I would also recommend Jacky's burrito as it is also fabulous! Must give this hidden gem a try!

Location is not in the area you would consider to be one of the best in Sioux Falls but the food was delicious. Had a chicken burrito Christmas style and really enjoyed it. Would recommend this place and plan to go back.

While road tripping through Sioux Falls, we pulled up Trip Advisor (again) to help guide us to lunch. Off the beaten path, we thankfully found Jackys! Like other reviews, the curbside appeal isn't much. But, the second we opened the door (10 minutes before their posted open hour) we knew we had made the right decision! We were warmly greeted...

I would rate this as ok/good, but not great Mexican. I like a lot of flavor in Mexican food and the more traditional seems to be more bland as is this. It may be one of the better in Sioux Falls, though as I was visiting and haven't tried them all.

We wanted something a little different when passing through Sioux Falls one night - read the reviews on local restaurants and Jacky's seemed well reviewed. When we finally found it we were having our doubts, as the building and area was not impressive in the slightest. We decided to go in and at least check it out. At first glance... More

The seafood soup was fantastic and very authentic. Service was great, and the prices were a good value. I would definitely recommend!

We love the fish tacos at Jackys. The fish is talapia, is nicely seasoned and served with a creamy cole slaw on fresh tortillas. The flavor is excellent. The plate also includes a side serving of a green sauce, which is good, but not necessary. We each ordered two fish tacos ($4 each). We ordered a side of rice and... More

Stopped here for lunch. We are new to Sioux Falls so first visit to Jacky's. It seems like we've come home... I honestly haven't had Mexican food this good since leaving California. Tacos Pastor were excellent. The savory pork filling was served simply with onion and cilantro garnish and lime wedges. The wife had beef taquitos which were very good,... More

There's no other way to describe dinner at Jacky's, absolutely delicious! Larger portions, reasonably priced, Guatemalan inspired Latin American recipes. If I lived here it definitely would be a local favorite. It's a nice walk from any of the hotels downtown. There is also the water front, shopping and a couple bars or go shopping on the way.

I wish tripadvisor had more than five choices for the rating system, and this place is a good example. It's less than average but not poor. On this scale, a two and a half. Jacky's had very tasty food when it first opened, then it plummeted to bad, and has come back, but still not great. We went back, reluctantly,... More
