“Excellent authentic Mexican meal!”
Review of Flor De Jalisco

Reviewed 5 August 2017

Had a wonderful meal with our family, including two children. Don't be put off by the strip mall location -- really good food.

They start you off with chips and salsa right when you sit down. Salsa had flavor and a little kick to it. We ordered the guacamole too - we like things hot and the guac was not, but still good.

For meals we went with chicken burrito, beef tacos, and chicken enchiladas. Each had its own unique flavor, served with rice and beans. Not cookie cutter Mexican -- the tacos were made right there and had a big avocado slice on top. Looked and tasted like everything was homemade. The burrito's sauce was excellent.

Owner seemed to know many of the customers and knew we were not from Palm Desert -- stopped over to talk with us. Loved it for dinner.

It was our first (and likely last visit). The food was okay, but nothing special. The chicken in the chimichanga was a bit on the chewy side. The steak fajita and chile relleno combo plate was a nice pairing and tasty. The place was hot (others were complaining that the lack of a/c probably were why they were serving so many beers) and the ceiling fans just weren't enough to cool off the customers. The owner waited on our table and couldn't keep up since it was just him and the tables were full. The table next to us asked for more salsa and rather than refilling the dish, he just brought over the entire tub and poured large scoops all over the plates. They couldn't even see their food under the salsa once he walked away. I doubt that they'll be back either since they weren't happy.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican style food in the Coachella Valley try this place. I had the torta ahogada with the mild sauce and was surprised for the bold flavor. Nice to see new restaurants opening in the valley offering a new variety to the already vast amounts of Mexican restaurants in the valley.

My wife and I stopped in here for dinner last night. Service was very good. The place was not crowded. You can tell locals like it. The margaritas were so-so - not much alcohol. I had the calamari fajitas and they were unique, a lot of food and good. My wife had a steak burrito which was very good. Two different sauces on top. Nice waiter!
