If you go here regularly, you become part of the El Jal family. I have eaten here for years and I think the food is good. When I had a tostada at another restaurant that I really liked, they were happy to add sour cream and pico de gallo (sp?) to the tostados they serve to me. I like the... More

I have visited this location for lunch or dinner for many years. The food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is delivered hot and quickly. If you are looking for a dependable 'go to' Mexican restaurant, this is your spot. If you are looking for a fancy decor, this is... More

The food was good, just not great. The chicken fajitas were way over cooked with the onions, burnt. The order took a long time to arrive at the table.

Friendly staff and good service. And the food is always good. Prices are good. Best tea in town . Our family comes to the restaurant at least 3 or 4 times a month.

Where all the locals go for Mexican food. Oscar (owner) is such a nice guy and his staff could not be more attentive. They even remember what we order when we go! Food is very good and served hot. Our favorite family restaurant.

The food had little to no taste, the inside is outdated, there are vines hanging from the ceiling. The whole experience was horrible and I will not be back, you want real Mexican food, go to Guacamole in Greer.

My wife and I were in the mood for Mexican food and decided to visit El Jalisco. Although it was crowded, we found a table and were attended by a friendly waiter. Our meal was delicious, and I can see why the eatery was so crowded. The food is what draws people. I must tell you, save room for dessert!... More
