Awesome Mexican food. Very authentic, very simple and ultimately very tasty. This is a very informal place to be informally enjoyed with food dripping from your face as n happiness!!

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.
