It's been a few years since the family owners changed the name from Jalisco to El Farol (the lantern) but they still have the same solid menu of favorites.

Jalisco on Capital Hill is one of the best resturants in town. The food is delicious, the people are friendly and helpful. The resturant is intimate, and a good place for couples or families to go and enjoy their evenings. They do take out which is also nice, for those days you want to eat Mexican food and sit on...
