While staying in the area for a mini getaway, my boyfriend and I first tried a different restaurant on main st because it was the only one seemingly open on Monday night. It was so so disappointing. I couldn't eat anything I ordered. Lousy, canned, non-fresh food. So then we went searching for somewhere else. Jalisco was a great little... More

Authentic Mexican cuisine. Great décor, and the beer is always cold. Don't forget to try the Quesadilla Jalisco. You almost can't eat it all, Almost !

Severely under staffed. Service is bad tonight. Watched couples waiting to pay just walled out after 15 min without any acknowledgement

In addition to salsa and chips when you are seated, you also get a bowl of a coleslaw type dip, which is unusual though tasty. Be prepared to have leftovers if you go here for dinner!

I took a plate of Chimichanga, that was too abundant to finish. Two large chimichangas smohered in cheese, full of meat, acompanied by salad, avocado, rice, beans all excellent and well cooked. Smiling and efficient staff. When, after paying the bill, I asked for a second horchata, the waitress would not let me pay for it. The bill itself was... More

Always try and stop by before going to Shenandoah National Park. The food is yummy, service is friendly and good. I am a total "gringa" so I couldn't tell you if it's authentic, but there are always a lot of customers of Mexican origin here. Everything I've ever ordered here was great, so I couldn't suggest anything in particular. Enjoy!

A coworker and I stopped here for lunch while working near Front Royal. We both ordered lunch specials and the server brought chips salsa and a small bowl of Cole slaw. Both of us devoured the cole slaw asked for more and asked for the recipe. Try it on a chip and you'll be hooked. We both agreed this was... More

I've eaten Chili Rellenos a billion times at a billion other Mexican restaurants, but Jalisco's is the best. I am also not a fan of refried beans but I love them at Jalisco's. I've taken a lot of friends/family here and everyone raved about the food. You may be bothered by the occasional fly and service can be hit or... More

Great Mexican food at a reasonable price, though my kids received regular tacos instead of the soft tacos they ordered. Would eat there again though.

We rarely get to enjoy a good Mexican meal because our kids claim they don't like Mexican! We were in Front Royal without the kids and wanted something casual and chose Jalisco. We were more than satisfied with the food we got here. We were a little perplexed when they brough cole slaw out with the chips and salso, but... More
