I liked that they serve traditional food and not Tex-Mex. Their tacos and tortes were the real deal. Our kids loved the simple tacos with rice an beans. Great chips and salsa too. Kid friendly with nice service. Small seating areas so large groups would be tough. We'd eat lunch here again for sure.

First we sat down in the back . It was cold. So we waited for a table in the front. It was warm. The service was pretty friendly . The food was just ok . Nothing bad to write. Nothing wow.

Used to love a little hole in the wall taco shop when I lived in California and have been searching for an equivalent when I travel. I found it in Taqueria Jalisco!

Have eaten here several times for lunch. The food is great and employees are friendly. It is small so big groups may have to wait but it is worth it!

My grandson & I go to a different restaurant for lunch usually each week. When we want the best Mexican food we come here. I have started trying different menu items each time we come...always very good...fast service...very reasonably priced..family restaurant that has the family flavor. There is a very large menu....many good choices.

Salsas and chips were tasty and fresh. Tacos lived up to expectations. Tamales were average. Tostada was great. Kids enjoyed the burritos, but wanted a higher ratio of beans to rice.
