We have eaten at this restaurant 3 times-couldn't stay away!! We had the same combo twice: chili relleno, taco & enchiladacw/ beans & rice. We have eaten a lot of Mexican food over the years, and this is as good as any in Mexico, California or New Mexico. The restaurant is very clean, the decor is unique, service is great... More

Pretty sad that quality has gone to poop, used to love eating here, they must have changed cooks or went to a cheaper product, they food taste bland and the use to be awesome salsa is very watered down, sadly I won't return.

We stopped for lunch, and we were in a hurry. The food came fast, and it was good. I really enjoyed the beans that came with the salsa, it was a great change. The prices were reasonable, and there was plenty of food. The decor was nice, I wasn't expecting that in a strip mall. I would stop here again.

This family friendly Mexican place has an extensive menu and the two things we had were awesome. The staff is friendly, attentive and energetic. The Carne Asada y Mas and the Arroz con Pollo were some of the best I've ever had. The chips were warm and came with loads of salsa and frijoles. Hidden in a strip mall, I'm... More

We eat here on visits from Jackson Hole. The food is reliably good, wait staff friendly and helpful. You get a LOT of food for the price. Tex-Mex style.

We started eating a Jalisco's about 20 years ago. The food is always excellent, the staff is courteous and conscience, and the prices are reasonable.

We have tried the other places around town and always say "we should have gone to Jalisco's!" Our family loves the bean dip that accompanies the chips and salsa as you wait for the rest of the yumminess to arrive. We have never been dissapointed in what we select from their extensive menu.

I realize Idaho Falls may not be the Mexican Food capital of America, but this place is a disappointment. Margaritas are watery and they barely salted the rim. The chips are over-fried and stale, salsa is like tomato water, and worst of all, they were "out" of cheese dip/queso when I was there. You're better off eating at Wendy's.
