The food here is really tasty and delicious. The wait staff are mostly Mexican and Central American nationals who have limited ability to speak English. I had to translate for my English speaking guests because they could not communicate with the waitress. The prices are below average. Beware, if you like "Huevos Rancheros" they are not served in the traditional... More

This place has improved in their service and food. The breakfast tacos are plentiful and their barbacoa is very good. The flour tortillas are good size. Good wait staff. They don't rush you out.

We love this little hole in the wall. Ask about the daily special (tons of food for a little money). The Jalisco burrito is enormous and super cheap. They have great food at low prices for breakfast lunch and dinner!

this is the place where locals know to go for a great meal. The food is consistently good and they have great lunch specials for a great price. Try this place! It is better than most more expensive Mexican restaurants.

We wanted a simple Mexican dinner after a Saturday Vigil and found this restaurant through Google. We've never been here before but we were feeling a little bit adventurous. The place looked dark from the outside because of the tinted window, we're not sure if there were people inside. We saw a person coming out and so went in. There... More

After Sunday meeting, we asked local brothers and sisters for some recommendations on where to eat. One of the places mentioned was El Jalisco for good Mexican food. As I said before, as native Calif I am particular of my Mexican food. Not really into Tex-Mex. But the local friends assured me that this was good authentic Mexican food. And... More

On business trip. Enjoying local favorite with my hosts. Ordered two tacos and when they arrived, immediately sent a picture of it to my husband who responded with a curse. He was jealous. The tacos looked that good and they were.

The food is tasty, but could be hotter in temperature. Breakfast tacos are not loaded full. Needed to keep asking server for coffee refills.
