Yummy Mexican food right next to the falls. Good service from a friendly, funny waitress. I had fried trout and really enjoyed it. Pepsi products are served here.

“Really Good Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

Visited on a very cold night and found this the perfect place to warm up. Food choices were many and varied as were the wine selections. Anything you would want in the way of Mexican food is here and it is well prepared. Service was excellent.

“A Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

We were on a road trip and spent the night in Idaho Falls craving some mexican food.

We discovered Jalisco's on 17th, not the downtown location.

We had a dish called Pollo Fundido that we had never had before and that was outstanding. Oh sure they had the normal salsa, two types and chips, but I don't go to a restaurant to eat chips.

On the other hand the Pollo Fundido was heavenly. It was a chicken dish wrapped in a flour tortilla with a cheese on top. I cannot express how good it was.

Okay, I gave the entire restaurant a great review and we only had one dish. But boy was it good!

“The food was not good, but the salsa was exceptional”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

Please, Jalisco's, bottle and sell your salsa! It was divine. The rest of the meal was not good. The only way I can describe the chile relleno was a canned whole chile on a plate with cheese sauce poured over the top. The food took a while to arrive. We had friends who had eaten there earlier in the day and loved it; not sure what they ordered. But, they agreed the salsa was outstanding.

“Outstanding food but easy to dismiss from the exterior and location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

If we had not been given a recommendation from locals to try this place we would not have even noticed it let alone chosen to eat here based on location in a small strip center and easy to miss exterior. and signing. Once inside we were very impressed with the workmanship of the decor even in the bathrooms. It shows a lot of pride in ownership and the food matched that observation. The menu is one of the most complete selections of Mexican specialties we have even seen. It was quite difficult to choose from such a large variety. I wanted to try every house special. The food was outstanding and the desert was amazing. I'll tell everyone I know to try this place when in Idaho falls.
