This was a huge restaurant, so social distancing was easy to accomplish. All of the employees were masked, but we did see some patrons maskless - and far from us. The menu has many items to choose from, but Monday is 99¢ tacos, so I...got 3 beef. You can also get bean or chicken. They come with lettuce and cheese. Husband gave me his guacamole, tomatoes and sour cream from his classic fajitas. He kept the beans and rice. Both of our entrees were hot and tasty. Husband said his chicken was pictured as long strips, which would have made it easier to make his fajitas. He got short pieces of chicken which made the fajita bulkier. But it WAS good. I don’t recall pictures of my tacos. Just lettuce and cheese would have been good, but the guacamole and sour cream made them exceptional. Three were more filling than anticipated. Two would have been plenty! Husband said he had way too much food. Our server was pleasant, efficient, and quick. When he noticed our drinks were down to a third, he picked them up and refilled them. When I was done, he whisked my plate away. He didn’t take my husband’s plate, but he was done, even though he didn’t eat everything. We really wanted the check dropped off, and it was slow to come. I think this was due to him having a lot of tables that were far way from each other. All in all, this was a good choice for Mexican food.More

Delicious authentic Mexican food that is served fast and accurately. They have spades out the seating due ton covid19 but that should not stop you from getting a great meal. All of the fajitas were fantastic with ample portions. We had steak, shrimp and chicken...(combination of these choices are also available) with the traditional accompanying sides of rice, decried beans, salsa, Lettuce, onions, peppers, and ample amount of sour cream and guacamole. They offer two for one prices on Margaritas and beer. A perfect combination!More

El Jalisco is consistently very good. Excellent service (especially this visit on Leap Day). Cold beer, delicious food served hot and promptly. Our server and the bartender came by several times to ask if everything was ok or did we need anything else. Service and...food as it should be.More

The lunch price was so good, we ate here three times! The waitstaff was good. The food was delicious. The fried ice cream was just okay. The topping was changed, it tasted like cereal.

The food and drinks are decent, prices are reasonable. Margaritas are horrible, so don't bother. Try the lemon drop martini instead. Tableside Guacamole is really good too.

Food was average Mexican cuisine. They duplicate orders on the bill, add items not ordered and charge for the traditional chips and salsa. I will never go there again.

Went here for lunch after church. No wait so that was great. It used be a more affordable place to go. It isnt anymore. Service was ok. Paid over $2 for each drink and never got a refill. A little underwhelming.
