We were searching for a Mexican Restaurant. Jalisco's Grill serves authentic Tacos, Tamales, Tostadas and the like. They can add more heat if so desired. English and Spanish are spoken throughout the restaurant. If we return to South Lake Tahoe, we'll stop by Jalisco's Grill again. Note: Don't confuse Jalisco's Grill with Jalisco's Taqueria, they're not the same.

We loved this little Mexican restaurant in South Lake Tahoe. There are so many dining options here, making a decision about where to eat can be overwhelming! Basedon other reviews, we decided to give Jalisco Grill a try. Order at the counter, and your food is delivered to your table. Quality ingredients, everything tasted great. Salsa bar was a bonus!...

We were really excited to eat here based on the reviews but were disappointed in the lack of flavor that came with the dishes we ordered. The place is a 'hole in the wall' that accepts CASH ONLY FYI which is always a good sign to us. Ordered tacos- chicken, asada, green chile pork, but all were lacking that spice... More

I've only had takeout from here so far so this review doesn't give a full picture. However, all the diners I saw while waiting several different times for my orders seemed well satisfied. Jalisco has good tasting offering. They seem to be honest Mexican recipes and not Americanized knock-offs. Both the carnitas and chicken tacos were good and the pork... More

It came time to eat and the friend with me said he loved Mexican food. It is not generally my first choice, but if I was a local this simple restaurant would take a high place on my favorites list.. We had trouble finding Jalisco, but the local information center is just across the street and they said we had... More

This place is away from Heavenly Village, just a short drive down the road on the California side of Tahoe. Hard to find even with GPS, as it's in the back of a strip center off the street, but worth the effort. We had an excellent meal with lots of vegetarian choices (not always really vegetarian in many Mexican places),... More

I try not to think of this place because I am within walking distance. It is too good to be that close. I always end up ordering more than the Super Burrito because it just seems the thing to do. But alas, my eyes, nose, and mind always assumes I can eat more than my stomach can take. Great food,... More

This place is a bit hard to find, and does not look like much at first glance, but do not judge a book by it's cover. Located in a strip shopping mall (in the way back), we had some hesitations, but thankfully we had faith. Limited seating and small inside. You order yourself at the counter. Food was AWESOME. Authentic... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Tahoe. They only take cash, which is not a problem for me. The owners are very nice and friendly. The food is very good and not expensive. I have tried many items on their menu and like everything that I have tried.
