Real Jalisco is pretty basic Mexican fare, but the selection is good. They even have Nopalitos, i.e. prickly pear cactus dishes. Mine was not bad, but not five star either, So like I said, average Mexican food.

FINALLY...I FOUND THEM. We found authentic glorious...wonderful...filling....street tacos. Wow. Thus place is wonderful. The wait staff were very helpful and informative. The food was as if right out of a street truck in Juarez. It was just very very good. A but difficult to see from the highway...but a great place to eat.

This was our second visit, the first was January of 2016 when we last traveled through Kansas City. Both times we had a great meal with very fresh and authentic Mexican food. This trip we arrived late on a Sunday night and the "Open" sign was being switched off as we got out of the car. We were noticed as... More

I live a few minutes away from this place, but when I crave authentic Mexican food, I usually head to Southwest Blvd. in Kansas City. However, when I want a REAL taco, I have found that Real Jalisco satisfies my desires. My favorite is the tacos Jalisco. They are deliciously crispy, with the perfect amount of melted cheese, and tender,... More

Real Jalisco is one of our favorite restaurants for authentic Mexican food in the KC area. So much better than bland Tex-Mex so prevalent in KC. Amazing flavors in their sauces! We’ve gone 1-2 times/month for a couple of years and have never had a bad meal (would go more if closer). Favorites include Miraplanes (steak or camarones), Mariposa Jalisco... More

We wanted some ethnic food and gave this place a try. The food was fresh and well prepared. Service was good. Prices were reasonable.

My husband and I have visited this restaurant several times with friends. I have to say it is probably some of the best Mexican food in KC. In past times I have had the 5 tacos, twice beef and once chicken and either way they are excellent and very filling. The last visit I had one of their burritos and... More

Just had dinner here with my family this evening. It was ok the rest of my family liked theirs but mine was redone as it included green peppers I asked to be excluded when ordering. I'd be curious to try some other dishes.

Okay, this place is a hidden gem. The atmosphere is not that impressive but it is clean and the food is authentic and amazing. There are plenty of food options to choose from but can be a bit pricey. The portion sizes are not super large but filling. I crave the achiote sauce! It keeps me coming back for more.

So glad you continue to come in! The achiote sauce is addicting, isn't it? Please come back soon and thank you for the feedback. More

4 adults and 3 kids . In and out in a touch over an hour. Waiter very nice and helpful with kids orders. We had the queso fundido. It is ok. My opinion is that it has too much stuff in it.
