We have gone there many times, never disappointed. The chips, green dip and salsa are so yummy. I try something new each time. They know what they are doing in the kitchen! Everyone there is very nice and makes the atmosphere very cozy. =) Go have fun and enjoy great food.

Firs of all this is one of all the places in Lawrence that sell what is considering real Mexican food. You can easily find a big difference between this place and others in Downtown. The Gorditas and the Chilaquiles are really good, delicious homemade flavor. The only con, is the table organization. just a personal matter. And sometimes they are... More

We recently moved to Lawrence and so we have been trying "new" restaurants when we can. We ate here and we loved it. It certainly is most authentic Mexican place we have found yet. We will definitely be returning.

If you are looking for authentic Mexican cuisine and not the Tex mex or American version of Mexican food in this small town this would be one of two places to try-this location with a much larger menu. Staff is friendly, outdoor patio for those days where the margaritas and beers are flowing and great food. Fish tacos are great,... More

This is another of those restaurants "off the grid" but offering authentic food that makes you feel as though you have eaten in someones home. Portions are "just right" and prepared just for you. Specials are SPECIAL! Very good special. Chips and Salsa are "extra" and the sauces are not your "chain restaurant" picante sauces. Green and red-red is "pretty... More

Very good food, but service can be a bit slow. They tend to be understaffed. Portions are generally a little smaller than most, which I find refreshing.

We have visited Tortas Jalisco many times over the past several years, and enjoy it quite a lot. To those who complain they have to pay a couple of dollars for chips and salsa, just consider that this are made in house fried tortilla chips--absolutely delicious and all you can eat. The green salsa is also AWESOME, good heat and... More

Good service and generous portions with casual Mexican ambiance and music throughout the spacious restaurant. Food was reasonably priced and quite good, but certainly not excellent. Wouldn't mind returning if I had another visiting guest who would like local Mexican food.
