Love the food here! Generous portions at a great price! Save room for the fried ice cream! The best I've had. The margaritas are hit or miss. The servers are mostly good and attentive.

We stayed just around the corner at the Twi-lite motel & went to Jalisco for dinner on the Sunday night of our arrival in Front Royal. It was fairly empty when we walked in around 7:30pm, long after the Sunday crowd, I'm sure. When my husband made en error in his order (two entrees were named very similarly, but each... More

After traveling to Mexico over a dozen times , I have had my fill of the way that Mexicans look at Americans as enablers to their financial progress. The food was edible , service was so- so , also the restaurant restrooms were totally filthy to the point that I believe the Front Royal Health Dept. shut the restaurant down... More

First of all I live here, second if your going to have Mexican there are better places than this one. It is pretty much a major Hit or Miss restuarant. The service it all depends on who is working that day or night and the Food well like I said,"a major Hit or Miss, either Blan or Overly Salty or... More

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
