Saying "Delta lacks good places to eat" would be a gross understatement. So, after a day at Topaz Mountain, we'd resigned ourselves to bad burgers or worse. Based on two positive reviews for El Jalisciense, however, we decided we had little to lose and gave it a try.
What a pleasant surprise! Simple, honest, Mexican food. Nothing fancy, but remarkably good--better than anything I've found in Salt Lake outside of the Red Iguana. I asked the guy behind the counter what he would recommend and he said "anything with the tongue (lengua)." He the volunteered a sample, which he brought back from the kitchen in a small cup, and it was delicious--tender and flavorful.
I ordered one enchilada with tongue and another with pork. Both excellent, though the tongue really is da bomb. My wife and kids ordered a variety of stuff and everyone walked away full and satisfied. Great fresh salsa bar, and really good refried beans. Inexpensive.
Will stop there again, (I think they have a second shop in Nephi). Good food, friendly service. Definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in Delta or driving through it.
