The service is great, but the food was not that good for what they charge, and quantity is also not in line. Will not go again.

The Manager at this restaurant is hands-on - which made for a great evening. He made some recommendations - one we loved, one we thought was just okay. We will be back and try some of his other recommendations next time. The staff is attentive and made us feel welcome! We will definitely be back for more!

The restaurant is always clean, the staff is always efficient and kind, and the food is fantastic! If you don't see what you want, just ask them, they'll make it for you!

This restaurant serves very authentic food from the region of Jalisco, Mexico. If you are looking for Tex-Mex, this is not the place for you. Many of the dishes will be a new experience for you, but the food is delicious. It is clean and surprisingly formal in the atmosphere. Not your typical Mexican restaurant.

TripAdvisor failed me on this one. We chose this restaurant because it had one of the top ratings in Blue Springs. But what we discovered is that serving "authentic Mexican food" isn't the same thing as serving "good" authentic Mexican food. Nearly everything we had at this restaurant was a fail. Okay, the chips and salsa were okay. But it... More

Great place for family, good food, also good chips and salsa, but didn't have salt shakers on the table. Host and staff were very friendly, and it was a comfortable place.

Nice family restaurant with real Mexican food. Enjoyed the burrito and chips and salsa. Usually add salt to the chips, but there were none on the table, but they were very good like they were. Very attentive staff, and nice place for good food. Also had beer available.

My husband and I met some friends for dinner. Being new to the area, We decided on Real Jalisco based on TripAdvisor reviews. The atmosphere was nice, and the service was good - but none of us really enjoyed our meals. My husband and I shared the Fajitas Palacios. It was bland and extremely oily. Our friends had the Mole...

We're Lee's Summit natives, and we tried this place via a Facebook post noting places KC locals love. SO thrilled we took the chance--exceptional find in Blue Springs. First, this place claims to serve legit, Jalisco (Mexico state) inspired cuisine, and I totally believe them. If you love Tex-Mex a la chimichanga, this may or may not be your place... More

Real Jalisco is traditional style Mexican food. Experience menu items that are seen in south of the border restaurants.
