My Daughter was in Athens briefly last weekend. I asked where could I take her to lunch at. She said, "By the railroad tracks at Jalisco" so we met up there for lunch! I asked her why do you always pick this Mexican Restaurant, she...More

Stopped in to Jalisco Taqueria on Sunday for lunch on our way through Athens, TX. on our way home to Fort Worth. Pleasantly surprised by the authentic freshly prepared lunch items. I especially enjoyed the Enchilada Dinner options, with a unique but delicious filling combination....More

Ate here for lunch and was very impressed. Don't judge it from the outside, it's not fancy. The chips were good, they serve you the regular red salsa but also give you the green sauce, very good. My enchiladas were great, and the portions were...More

Great place for breakfast. The machacado compares to the taquerias we experienced when living in Corpus Christi. The American menu breakfast items, however, need a lot of work. Unfortunately, my wife doesn't like this restaurant because of this reason. Who the "bleep" goes to a...More

Food - I like their pastor tacos on soft corn tortillas with onions, cilantro and avocado. I also like their chips and salsa plus their creamy greenish sauce. Atmosphere - It's a very small restaurant - not fancy in any way, shape or form. The...More

We started eating at this restaurant when we moved to Cedar Creek lake in 1998. We now live in San Antonio but continue to visit the Cedar Creek area once a month so driving to Athens is worth the trip for the authentic Mexican food....More
