“Awesome Food - Prices are Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were looking for some good Mexican fare and after reading a few reviews found this little gem! Owned by Alma and George Zepeda, they are cranking out some authentic dishes. I had the three taco plate and tried the Pollo, Asada, and Pastor. Got to say that they were all delicious but the Pastor was the best. Perfectly seasoned and mildly spicy. Plate comes with rice, beans, sour cream and guacamole. Husband had a burrito - NOTE: They are HUGE and easily shared!

They give you a basket of warm tortilla chips while you wait and you can go load up on homemade salsa choices at the bar.

Another tip: Bring Cash! They do not take credit cards!

Run, don't walk to Jalisco's if you have the Mexican food craving!!

“Food without Frills”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

If you want to eat very good home made Mexican food. This is the place. There are a lot of Mexican restaurants in SLTahoe and this one is actually hard to find, but again if it is authentic food you want this is what you get. You place your order when you come in - menu is listed above the counter. You get your own bottled drinks, no ice, water is available, find yourself a table and wait for your tasty food to arrive. While you are waiting you can fill small plastic cups with condiments such a verde sauce, salsas, etc. Your meal will be delivered in the typical red baskets we see at drive ins or on a plate if combo is ordered (Includes beans and rice). Guacamole is extra but get it as it is only .50. Several varieties of tacos in corn tortillas but lettuce and cheese is .25 extra. Two @ $1.25 were more than enough for me and the enchilada combo was a substantial meal ($6.50). Servers were quick and attentive. No alcohol.

“What a find!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This place is so friendly you feel like family. Food was beyond fantastic. Service was top notch. You place your order when you enter and from there they take over. Rellenos and enchilas rock! Only beer and soft drinks but don't let that stop you.

“Strip mall gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Doesn't have the greatest decor, but it was wonderfully quick service and delicious Mexican food. Most of the items could be done a la carte and very good value for what you get.

“I Wish I Lived Near This Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

It's in a strip mall and the decor is strictly "no frills".......and the food is fantastic! The counter man took us to a table gave us a paper menu to look over,gave us chips and told us to come back to the counter to order when we were ready. We took some "fixins" from the salsa bar for our chips and then went back to the counter where all our questions were answered and placed our orders.The dishes were brought to us and the meal was outrageously good and very, very reasonable. Make sure you note the sign at the counter - CASH ONLY.
