Service polite and prompt. Surroundings rather austere but clean. Food hot and tasty. One lady in our group ordered a non-gluten enchilada.

Enjoyed a fajita plate, ground beef nachos, cheese enchiladas, and a bacon cheeseburger today. Almost as good as I remember this place.

Not fancy but good food at affordable prices! Great service. I had the pork chop breakfast. Beans were on point! Generous portions. Will be back and recommend to others.

I have been to many Mexican restaurants. I must admit that this is my favorite. Not only is it authentic Mexican but you get a great meal for the price. We visited three different sites while in Texas and all of them were fantastic.

Be prepared for a full plate without a big bill. The Mexican food was a full plate and hot. The price was very reasonable. I'll come back!

I was worried at first because it seemed a bit to local for us but WOW! I cant say enough good things about this place. Quit wasting time at Taco Bell and other chains, this is the place for good ol fashioned Mexican food. We had enchiladas, cow tongue tacos, beef tacos, and a beef burrito and they were all... More

I will never eat at any Jalisco's ever again. Food is not bad. Service and the owners (all of them) are crooked. They will overcharge whomever they want based on race. Yes I said it, race.
