We had this via delivery and it got to us cold and not packaged very well. Things were leaking. May have been at fault of delivery driver but - just not sure. I've had better, this would do in a pinch at their restaurant.

I had previously eaten here. They offer daily lunch specials, $ 4.99 each. We were greeted and sat immediately. The server was right on it - had on a mask - brought us the chips and guacamole. Very clean environment - they are health conscious....I ordered the chimi with ground beef. It came with rice, cheese and sour cream. It was just what I ordered - was served fast and was hot. The food here is excellent. I really wanted Mexican - this really fit the bill. It was just enough food for lunch. The staff acted like they wanted you there and appreciated your business. I will be back again when in town. Great job !!!More

From the beginning our service was 10/10 thanks to Luis G. For a great service. We got the street tacos carnitas & the fajitas. The food had great flavor and presentation. We came from Orlando

We evacuated to Tallahassee during the hurricane and were greatly surprised by this find. Home style taste, friendly atmosphere and typical Mexican decor. Very kid friendly. Laid back dress code. Good prices. During lunch the 2 waiters while pleasant and attentive were kinda scattered running...here and there. A food runner brought our food and we were asked if everything came out ok only after we were sitting there finished for a long time.More

Each time I come to dine here it gets better and better, there's never a time that I order and I don't end up getting a lot of food and end up being so full. This time was no exception I got the nacho el...Jalisco and it was amazing, added some extra grilled onions and I was stuffed, no need for desert ever! Get there early because the fill up quickly for lunch but its so good. One day I intend to go and try the tableside guacamole because it looks amazing but maybe next time!More

I have been to this restaurant SO many times. I’ve been with friends and family on multiple occasions. Love the staff and the service. Reasonably priced food and always fresh! Salsa is delicious and chips are fresh. I’ve been so many times, that now I...know the waiters and waitresses. Best El Jalisco is the one on Monroe. Kerry Forest El Jalisco is great as well! Not a fan of the one of Capital Circle though.More

Amazing cuisine! It felt like I was in Mexico! The Chili Relleno was authentically wonderful! Instead of the usual appetisers, I ordered their Guacamole and it was just as great! Looking forward to exploring their full menu. I've always enjoyed El Jalisco in Wakulla, and...this one is just as amazing. Bravo, El Jalisco! The service was hospitable, fast, and efficient, just as great as your food!More

We ate here twice on our coming and going trip to Vero Beach, Florida. It looks like this is a chain and I can only say that it is one of my favorite Tex-Mex food haunts now. The food is fresh and very satisfying and...the margaritas are fantastic. Be sure to go in the evening during happy hour as they are "buy 1 get 1 free"--oh yes! Outdoor dining is available and very enjoyable.More

First visit for us, won't be the last. Everything from the margarita to the service was wonderful. The fajitas for two was more than we could possibly eat, delicious. Thank you.

We had the tacos and the quesadilla combo and they were very good. Nice amount of chicken with good flavor.

Not sure Kayla. I've only been there for food. Didn't pay attention to Happy Hour. Have to give them a call.
