Best Mexican restaurant in Truckee. The food is fresh, delicious and a friendly staff. Also, it's inexpensive and you get big portions with your meal

This is a good family restaurant. The portions are generous. We were a group of six, everyone ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meal.

This "hole in the wall" never disappoints and other "Mexican food" restaurants down the block pale in comparison. From the humble but authentic single soft tacos to the monster Molcajete sizzling multi-meat/shrimp extravaganza - there's something for every taste and budget. Good Kids menu. Seating can be limited at peak times. Sister restaurant in Reno is bigger and just as... More

We enjoyed the nachos, enchiladas suizas, tacos, and chicken quesadilla. The service is good and prompt. The staff is friendly and helpful. The place is clean and busy! This is a locals spot. The place is tucked in the back corner of the 7-11 shopping center. My husband doesn't like to go there for one reason- fluorescent lights. He doesn't... More

We stumbled upon this place passing through Truckee and couldn't have been more pleased with our find. Delicious tacos!! The best I've had in years. It's a little hidden, but what a gem. Do yourself a favor and stop in.

I'm not a fan of sweet red sauce on my enchilada so I can't rate this place very highly. But it has a nice decor and the vegetables seemed fresh.

The street tacos were under $2 each but they weren't overly impressive. Had to pay extra for chips and salsa which never excites me.

Tacos Jalisco is a staple in Truckee for consistently good food and friendly service, has been for years. It's been awhile since we've been here and we discovered as rent prices go up, so do food prices. It's no longer a great cheap eats place, (was surprised to see $12.00 items on the menu) but still a great eats place.

Always delicious, y siempre muy típico, I first discovered Tacos Jalisco more than 15 years ago, and they have never failed to impress, and fill me with delicious food. My buddy Dan-O and I hit Jalisco hard this past week, three times so far. The habanero sauce reminds you the next day of the feast from the night before. I... More
