We came as a group of five we ordered fajita Quesadilla, arroz con pollo, and trio quesadilla platter. All were good. Beers were a double pour and the atmosphere pleasant

Stopped by for late lunch. Not crowded at all. Atmosphere authenic😄Usual selection of foods. Food not hot. Taste OK. Service OK. One on Monroe much much better. HOWEVER, friendly place😊

Most is usual american mexican fare, big pile of refried beans and rice with each meal, chips and salsa on the table when you arrive. But the fish tacos are with fresh grilled grouper. Order with soft flour tortillas instead of the taco shells! Very...good margaritas!More

El Jalisco is a family run chain with several Tallahassee locations. This one is good, but there are others that I prefer. That said, the food is consistently tasty, and the service is fast at lunch time.

We always hear the radio advertisements, see the commercials, hear about it from people & have been saying we need to try it & finally did. And it was worth it! Pollo El Jalisco & El Jalisco Nachos were both very very good. Large plates...of food & reasonably priced. Our waiter was great too.More

It takes a lot to impress me when it comes to food but this place was on point tonight. Having just ate at another Mexican place for lunch, El Jalisco exceeded my expectations and their competitors. My meal and dessert were so fresh and delicious....You get a lot of food with each order so compared to the price it’s a good deal. The service was slow but I will definitely be coming back.More

We have visited this location of El Jalisco several times and continue to be disappointed. Not only did we have the worst service ever, but the food took a very long time to order and to come out. We had a large group of friends...and no one got their food at the same time. The portions have gotten smaller and less appetizing looking. It appeared that was food was just thrown on the plate. We ordered 2 for 1 Margaritas and got one round. The drinks were watered down and the second round took so long that we never got the second drink and the manager argued with us that not getting the second drink was our fault. We asked that it be taken off the bill and were told that would not happen. Therefore we will NEVER go back again to this location.More

we went to el Jalisco on Tuesday and were quite pleased with the lunch specials. today was for $5 - enchilada, taco and quesadilla, we had that and split a great guacamole dip. all in all we paid $15 for a pretty fair meal, good...service, pleasant folks. our waitress was great. we had enough left over on the quesadilla to take home. all week long they have $5 lunch menu changing daily. decent salsa and chips.More

Locals, especially students, love the reliably good and cheap drinks. The food is standard and not at all bad. The service is usually pretty great, if busy.
