So this was one of those "Long distance driving must stop and eat" stops we made and could not have been more delighted! Unassuming little place with very personable service... Big menu with lots of unexpected and unique choices like a seafood fajitas and vegetarian enchiladas... The sauces were well spiced without being 'hot' spicy so that you can add... More

I have been to Jalisco three times, and kick myself each time after the first. Service is very slow, and the food is marginal. The cheese in every dish reminds me of the Velveeta I ate in college trying to save money. The place is always crowded, which is amazing, and at best speaks to differing palates. Also, check the...

Service was really bad only saw the waiter 2 times. Found flies in the food. I normally will give a place a couple of tries but not this place. I will never be back. The food taste ok I could make better.

I'd suggest going to the Mexican restaurant in the Walmart shopping center instead. Will not return here

We came upon this place by accident on the way to our rental cabin in Front Royal and are we glad we did! The service and food are awesome! Authentic, flavorful mexican food served with a smile!! The waiter was pleasant, friendly and helpful, and the mexican "atmosphere" of the restaurant added to our enjoyment of the meal. A definite... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant around. The food is authentic and the service is excellent . But tonight, there were 3 very loud groups behind me in the front left room. They were so loud we couldn't talk. But we'll back and sit elsewhere.

Scooped my granddaughter from bball practice and thought i would treat her to Mexican. Been here before and it was not that bad. Glad to see they upgraded their tables, booths and chairs . Rather shabby the last time i was there. My granddaughter ordered Camarones diablo, more diablo than camarones. I ordered a bean burrito with guacamole. She said... More

This was our fourth visit in the past 2 years and it consistently good. You get real Mexican food not from a chain kitchen and the ambiance of a place in Guadalajara. The service is prompt & friendly. The portions are generous and moderately priced. Thursday lunch special all lunch meals are $5.99.

Coming from California, the land of authentic Mexican food, this was average at best. We enjoyed the warm day outside on the patio and our server was polite, but when I asked what was the spice/taste in the refried beans (the beans tasted as if blended carrots had been added) she had no idea. Surprised to find Mole sauce on... More
