Best Mexican restaurant in Truckee. Great atmosphere and delicious food. The prices are inexpensive and your meal is served quickly. Plus it has a good beer selection. I'll definitely be going back!

This is hands down the best Mexican in Truckee. Love heading here after a day of skiing. Cheap, and big portions.

Can't say enough good things about Tacos Jalisco. The food is extremely tasty and its just too bad that a place like this isn't at Squaw Valley where everything is bland and tasteless.

Everything on the menu at Tacos Jalisco is out of this world. Even a simple bean and cheese burrito is like no other, especially with the unique and delicious red salsa made available at every table. Truly authentic Mexican food is served here; it's the best you can get north of the border. The locals will all agree, too: there's... More

I live in Truckee, California and have not only the awesome community but we have some really awesome authentic Mexican food. Taco's Jalisco's is known to the locals as the place to go.

I really only wanted to use the restroom. I always know you need to buy something if you use a restaurant's restroom. I walked up to the counter and looked at their menu. I ordered one of their burritos (chicken) and a diet coke. They brought it to my table. First I stared at it because it was huge (if... More

We ended up here when our regular spot for Mexican food in town was closed. The food was fantastic, the restaurant friendly and fast. We'll go back, it looks like we found a new "first choice".

We stopped by twice on a MTB tour here last weekend. The food is awesome, and service quick. Highly recommend the molcajete - spicy, but very flavorful - and any of the tortas - we had the beef and veggie, and they were awesome. We came back the second night after we had a not so good experience at River... More
