Really didn't have any expectations going in since reviews really haven't been the best. Was welcome immediately and seated. The server was very friendly but most important the food was good. I enjoyed the food but the chips and salsa were awesome. Go try it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Anymore it's hard to find a decent Mexican restaurant. This one is on that list. Nothing special but the food is service was good. Probably wouldn't go out of my way to visit again though.

Already detailed in previous review how much I like this joint - and that it's much needed in the neighborhood.

The stock $7 marg is perfectly serviceable.

Shrimp soup (pictured below) is EXEMPLARY!

Took some pleasure in goading the manager to learn to filet a red snapper and use some fish other than tilapia in tacos, soups, etc. In earlier visit and chat, he'd asserted the use of catfish in those menu items; however some months later, they've reverted to the reviled gutter fish.

Party of 6. Pico with chips prior to ordering was so good! Our individual meals were all appetizing and excellent, and the server was very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, experience and the decor. We will definitely be back.

There are lots of good Mexican Restaurants in the area of Waukegan and Gurnee. This was our first time at Jalisco and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. They have an extensive menu with some different items not seen at many Mexican Restaurants. Our server was very attentive and answered all our questions. The food came in a reasonable amount of time and was piping hot. The portion size was more than adequate. My husband and I were very satisfied with our meal. We will definitely go back.
