First time trying real Mexican food and had enchiladas and choke rellano. Really tasty and seemed like it was the real deal. Very good value at less than 10 dollars. Would definitely recommend this one. Service was excellent and we were looked after very well.

It's all good a Jalisco's. Real good food, home made tortillas. If you live nearby, you already know. If you live in Monterey or coming down from the north, it is a worthwhile side trip for lunch or dinner.

Really good food, Neat old building was originally built for a PGE business office. Friendly staff. Weekend nights they have a mariachi band that is way too loud. I avoid them!

We visited for lunch. Everyone on staff was friendly and there was obvious pride of ownership. The food was okay. If you are craving a Mexican meal and want a place that's clean and convenient. This is it.
