We had the combination plate and the stuffed enchiladas. Everything was very good, fresh and well prepared. The sopapillas are "to die for".. Ron

“It is just Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2009

I have eaten Mexican food for over 30 years on both side of the boarder so maybe I expect more when I see rave reviews. Jalisco is good but not exceptional. All the beef items were ground except for the Taquitos and steaks and no pork. There was nothing on the menu that drew my curiosity or was different.
We had the large combo meal and so that we could try both the beef and chicken tacos as well as the red and green chili enchiladas. The meats were not very spicy so we add the salsa from the table. The green had the most flavor but none of it was memorable. I have eaten at Taco stands and carryout with better food and flavor. The beans and rice were also just standard.
We also tried the guacamole and it was good but again this is not exceptional. Previous reviewers I am sorry but I felt mislead by your impressions. I wanted a new taste and it is not there.
Service was very good!

“Nice place to eat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2009

The atmosphere was very nice, the food very good, and we were seated and served quickly. Our visit was marred by a waitress who got our order wrong, but other than for that it was above average.

“Wonderful old New Mexico”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2008

Jalisco keeps the exact flavor o a wonderful old New Mexico cafe. The food is close to authentic native New Mexican and the atmosphere is just right. Visitors form big cities in the East might have to go there a few times to get the hang of it..
