“Wonderful New Mexico Chili Flavor”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

On every trip to Silver City we make it a big point to have several meals at Jalisco's. The place is always busy, so come early or late, or send someone ahead to get a table! The staff is always nice, helpful, and prompt for us. The enchiladas are always great for me, my honey love to go for the chili rellenos. the breading is thin and not intrusive to the flavor if the relleno. The salsa always has enough heat to get you rolling. Always have an order of sopapillas with honey to mellow out the heat of it all! All in all I think this is the best place in silver city for mexican dinner.

“Great Mexican food.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great food, big portions, great cultural atmosphere. Can be pricy depending on what you order. They have lots of seating if you wanted to reserve for a big party. If your not into Mexican they have burgers and fries, which is decent.

“The best Mexican Food!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Great Mexican restaurant. The locals were there almost any time of day. A good sign! Especially for this Texan, it was wonderful. Make sure you get an order of Sopapillas (three). The salsa was the best I remember having. It is spicy! You can buy it to go from an 8 ounce cup to a gallon and we bought a half-gallon.

“Green chili specialties”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

We love this restaurant for its green chili dishes. My husband thought they were the best green chili enchiladas he had ever eaten. Lots of tables so you get seated quickly. Can be noisy do to the number of families. If you like good Mexican food than this won't disappoint.

“Charming place with good Mexican food”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Very good Mexican food. May want to ask how spicy things are if this is an issue for you. Great price on a glass of wine! Right around the corner from the Palace Hotel. Friendly and efficient service. Definitely recommend.
