Expected excellence but got . . .

We had eaten here before (several years ago) and were super impressed with the quality and authentic Mexican taste but were highly disappointed this time. the service was terrible and the food was not even close to what it was before. We wondered if it has new owners or a new cook.

I have had many meals here and only once was let down. This past Friday was a wonderful visit, as we expected. We are always greeted warmly, served nachos with homemade salsa and more. The meals for each of were delicious. As expected, the experience was perfect.

The great thing about this atmospheric restaurant is that it's close to motels downtown. The food was average Mexican and the waitress was nice enough...until she disappeared. After she brought our dinner we didn't see her again for an hour. Very strange....

Jalisco was okay, better than okay when comes to the food. The carnitas dinner was tasty, fresh salsa and salad served there on the plate, flour tortillas, guacamole. Carnitas were about right. Refried beans looked potentially to be from a can, as I might do at home (they didn't appear to be made there), and the flour tortillas also appeared... More

We stopped at Jalisco's for late lunch on Sunday after visiting Skyline Caverns in Front Royal. Got Chimichanga Lunch and we all agreed was good but not great. Wait staff forgetful & I agree with an earlier post that wasn't very clean.

If you want some good old fashioned Mexican food then head on over to Jalisco's. Good quality and sizable portions are the order of the day with reasonable prices to boot.

I will definitely not be going back (I went with family and did not have a choice to stay). Upon walking in it smelled musty and was unpleasant. Dining area was not very clean. Food was terrible. Refried beans tasted like they were artificially flavored. Rice was dry and had odd vegetables in it such as lima beans. My reccomendation... More
