Good Food, Small Price

Be prepared for a full plate without a big bill. The Mexican food was a full plate and hot. The price was very reasonable. I'll come back!

I have been to many Mexican restaurants. I must admit that this is my favorite. Not only is it authentic Mexican but you get a great meal for the price. We visited three different sites while in Texas and all of them were fantastic.

I was worried at first because it seemed a bit to local for us but WOW! I cant say enough good things about this place. Quit wasting time at Taco Bell and other chains, this is the place for good ol fashioned Mexican food. We had enchiladas, cow tongue tacos, beef tacos, and a beef burrito and they were all... More

We ate at #19 on our way from Corpus to Padre Island. Food was excellent, good prices, great service, my coffee cup was rarely empty. Staff was friendly and efficient, seemed to be alot of locals here. On Memorial Day 2013 it was so packed we had to park behind the building in a different lot and walk over. Cant... More

I will never eat at any Jalisco's ever again. Food is not bad. Service and the owners (all of them) are crooked. They will overcharge whomever they want based on race. Yes I said it, race. I used to go to the one in flour bluff every sunday morning and every thursday afternoon. It was the same thing all the... More

We ate at jaliscos #4 and it was just a horrible experience. The waitress acted like we were to much of a hassle to attend to, so no refills, no checking back on us and rudely slammed drinks and food onto the table making a horrible mess. As to the food it was also terrible and made most of our... More

Recent 2 day trip to Corpus Christi, where I lived for 18 years. Taqueria Jalisco was a must for my trip. There are several Taqueria Jalisco's, I ate at #2 on Horne Road. I had the bean, cheese, and guacamole nachos (pictured). Perfect!! My guests enjoyed cheese enchiladas with rice and beans. The sweet tea was fresh and great also.

My family eats Mexican food all the time but this was definetly one of the best mexican food restaurants we have eaten at. Don't expect a chain Mexican food restaurant, it... More
