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.

better than some of the other Mexican food restaurants i have been in Idaho, but in no way is it authentic. Still, the food was pretty good.

The waitress was very nice and helpful and recommended dishes for us, having never been there before. The food was good, but did they forget the alcohol in my margarita?
