The night we dined the staff was short handed and they let us know before seating us. There was no noticeable delay getting our drinks or our food. The only issue we had was not receiving additional chips & salsa after asking the waiter a couple times...it was busy. Otherwise, the food was good, the beer was cold, and the... More

Authentic Mexican food. Fluffy rice. Spicy with plenty of heat. Large portions. Asked for unsweetened tea, server brought sweet tea. I requested no sour cream on my entree, but it was covered in sour cream. Chicken enchiladas with green sauce were tender and tasty. My enchiladas with mole sauce were also good.

Have been visiting Jalisco's since their old location on S. Royal many years ago. A Californian, I'm picky about my Mexican food, but have always found this restaurant to have the freshest ingredients, the cleanest surroundings, and an all- around good feeling. Front Royal is lucky to have Jalisco's and it is way under-rated. It's the best value in town!

The food was OK- but the service was a little spotty- we were there mid-afternoon, so it was not busy.

The food here is good and the service is also good. The only reason I did not give it a 5 is because it is sometimes not spotlessly clean.

TERRIBLE SERVICE! Good food, but the service was arrogant, slow, rude and incompetent. I went there with a friend on a Saturday afternoon when the restaurant was only a quarter full. The waitress came quickly to take our order. Everything seemed fine, but after that point, everything went downhill quickly. Getting our drinks took 15 minutes. Taking our order took... More

The quality of the food and service were top shelf. Prices were very reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant and would stop in again.

Every town has it's Mexican place. Jalisco's really is an exception to the usual mediocre fare. Authentic fare with good service, and portions that will certainly make you smile. The place is usually full of Mexican folks, and I guess that tells you that there real deal resides within. Chicken enchiladas with mole', and mexicana taco's with beef, and chorizo.... More

On 3/26/16 @ 7:45 pm my friend asked if I wanted to go out to dinner and if so, where? I of course said yes and as I had been wanting to eat at the Jalisco Mexican Restaurant for a while, I said there -- and so we went. Upon entering the restaurant, we found the "greeting" area very unclean... More

My friend and I ate there this evening with 2 small children. The waiter (Derek) was attentive and very helpful as well as patient with 2 toddlers being toddlers. The food was delicious and served quickly.
