Food was great, had the Oysters and Agua Chiles that satisfied my hunger. Had the opportunity to interact with the staff, very friendly but professional at the same time. Customer Service #1 on my book. P.S. thank for a lovely evening and see you guys soon.

Wife and I met for lunch here today. Very nice Mexican atmosphere. Busy with customers. Colorful decor. Staff was very pleasant. Cheerful waiter. I had pork carnitas which were excellent. Nice hot tortillas. Will definitely return. They have a bar and beer.

We had a very nice lunch at Jalisco's. Being raised in Southern California I find most Mexican restaurants in Utah/Idaho a let down. That said, Jalisco's is in my opinion the best in town. The chips and mild salsa starter was very good and came with warm bean dip. The best Chile Verde I have eaten in a very long... More

We were on our way down the road to our hotel, saw Jalisco's and thought we would try it for dinner as we're always on the lookout for good Mexican food. Later, we asked at our hotel and they said Yes! to Jalisco's. We were very pleased with our dinners - flautas and burritos. The sides of beans and rice... More

The food was good. My wife and I got flautas. I've had better flautas but I've also had worse. They were nice enough to exchange beef for chicken which we appreciated. The free chips and salsa are super delicious. The house lime margarita was great!

We've been going to Jalisco's since it opened. When we have out-of-town visitors, it's our choice for them, too. The food and service are always great.

We stopped here for dinner and were immediately impressed with the service. Mira was our server and she was excellent. The food tasted fresh and came out quickly. The chicken was moist and tender, the seafood was delicious and the salsa and guacamole were excellent. My wife tried a fruity drink called the Latin Lover and said it was delicious.

If you like Mexican Dinning, you've found the Best Place in Idaho Falls. Save room for the Chocolate Enchilada! A crape tortilla, filled with vanilla cream pudding, a banana, rolled up and covered with whipped cream and fudge drizzled over all. After tasting, you'll get one for each person. This is served No Where on earth, but Jalisco's. I know,... More
