Everything on the menu at Tacos Jalisco is out of this world. Even a simple bean and cheese burrito is like no other, especially with the unique and delicious red salsa made available at every table. Truly authentic Mexican food is served here; it's the best you can get north of the border. The locals will all agree, too: there's... More

I live in Truckee, California and have not only the awesome community but we have some really awesome authentic Mexican food. Taco's Jalisco's is known to the locals as the place to go. The family that has this location also has one in Northstar and Kings Beach. All the locations have the same menu and are really good. Small restaurant's... More

The portions are very large here. The food is very good. Not too spicy. The people were very friendly.

I really only wanted to use the restroom. I always know you need to buy something if you use a restaurant's restroom. I walked up to the counter and looked at their menu. I ordered one of their burritos (chicken) and a diet coke. They brought it to my table. First I stared at it because it was huge (if... More

We ended up here when our regular spot for Mexican food in town was closed. The food was fantastic, the restaurant friendly and fast. We'll go back, it looks like we found a new "first choice".

We stopped by twice on a MTB tour here last weekend. The food is awesome, and service quick. Highly recommend the molcajete - spicy, but very flavorful - and any of the tortas - we had the beef and veggie, and they were awesome. We came back the second night after we had a not so good experience at River... More

This is a good family restaurant. The portions are generous. We were a group of six, everyone ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meal.

This "hole in the wall" never disappoints and other "Mexican food" restaurants down the block pale in comparison. From the humble but authentic single soft tacos to the monster Molcajete sizzling multi-meat/shrimp extravaganza - there's something for every taste and budget. Good Kids menu. Seating can be limited at peak times. Sister restaurant in Reno is bigger and just as... More
