I've only had takeout from here so far so this review doesn't give a full picture. However, all the diners I saw while waiting several different times for my orders seemed well satisfied. Jalisco has good tasting offering. They seem to be honest Mexican recipes and not Americanized knock-offs. Both the carnitas and chicken tacos were good and the pork... More

It came time to eat and the friend with me said he loved Mexican food. It is not generally my first choice, but if I was a local this simple restaurant would take a high place on my favorites list.. We had trouble finding Jalisco, but the local information center is just across the street and they said we had... More

This place is away from Heavenly Village, just a short drive down the road on the California side of Tahoe. Hard to find even with GPS, as it's in the back of a strip center off the street, but worth the effort. We had an excellent meal with lots of vegetarian choices (not always really vegetarian in many Mexican places),... More

I try not to think of this place because I am within walking distance. It is too good to be that close. I always end up ordering more than the Super Burrito because it just seems the thing to do. But alas, my eyes, nose, and mind always assumes I can eat more than my stomach can take. Great food,... More

This place is a bit hard to find, and does not look like much at first glance, but do not judge a book by it's cover. Located in a strip shopping mall (in the way back), we had some hesitations, but thankfully we had faith. Limited seating and small inside. You order yourself at the counter. Food was AWESOME. Authentic... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Tahoe. They only take cash, which is not a problem for me. The owners are very nice and friendly. The food is very good and not expensive. I have tried many items on their menu and like everything that I have tried.

This is our choice for affordable, tasty Mexican cuisine in South Lake Tahoe... both times my wife had the prawn soup, 8 fat prawns in a tasty broth. I had the taco platter with 3 taco's, one each of beef, carnitas, and chicken. The beef and chicken were a bit overcooked, but with the salsa bar and guac/sour cream and... More

We read the reviews and decided we would try this local favorite. We were not disappointed. We ordered the California Burrito, which we heard was great and it was as big as a paperback book. The service was great, very friendly and the prices were CHEAP!! We'll definitely go again next time we are in South Lake Tahoe. It is... More

Jalisco Grill is owned and operated by a very nice family. Their Mexican food is the best I've tasted in Tahoe and I am a local! Great prices, casual atmosphere. Have the chicken enchiladas with green sauce! Awesome salsa bar also.
