Real Jalisco offers something more than the typical tomatoes/lettuce/meat smothered in orange cheese sauce. The menu is just different. My favorites include Shrimp and mushrooms in a spicy barbecue rub and oil and their signature dish, Tacos Callejeros--a mix of chicken or beef sautéed with red onion and spices topped with guacamole and fresh cilantro served in soft, steamed tortillas (reminding me of potstickers). A squeeze of lime and WOW! Many recipes come from the owner's mother, a native of Mexico. I've never tasted anything quite like these dishes! Definitely worth visiting as we are now "regulars!"

We've been to Real Jalisco twice so far. Each time we visited the food was excellent. This is not overly Americanized Mexican food, this is traditional Mexican at it's finest. If you want over-cheesed fried everything Mexican, go someplace else. Real Jalisco has tender, flavorful and juicey entrees - amazing corn tortillas and excellent spicy salsa.
Service as soon as we walked in was excellent. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes and always looking over his shoulder making sure we had everything we needed.

If you are looking for the typical KC Mexican consisting of tacos and burritos stay away. If you want the best authentic Mexican food you've ever had this is the place.

We dine here at least once a month- sometimes more. The food is always excellent. Sometimes they offer specials which I suggest trying. I've tried a number of items and they were all great. The owners will also offer suggestions and even to make something special to your taste.

The staff is always friendly and the service quick. The salsa is excellent and I highly recommend the Real Jalisco margarita.

Not sure about the portion size comments. I have always found that meals here have good portion sizes.

Keep up the great work! It's great to have a good non-chain place to eat at in Blue Springs!

If you want tex-mex don't go here, they have real mexican food, the food is always fresh and good, never had a bad meal.
The sauce is very mild but the hot is super hot ,so mix with mild and get a hot sauce you can eat.
I tell all my friends about Jalisco.
