“Great Burritos”
Review of Jalisco Grill

Jalisco Grill

Reviewed 4 November 2013

Went here on a lark after finding that a highly reviewed place had gone out of business -- this definitely exceeded expectations. A very low-key atmosphere -- you order at the counter -- but service was extremely friendly and attentive. The menu is not extremely large, but what they make they do very well. We had the Super and California burritos, and both were delicious. From what I could tell it looked like this place is a favorite of locals as well, which is always a good sign. If you're looking for high quality mexican food at a low price, then this is a good place to go when you're in South Lake Tahoe.

Loved it so much the first time we went we have gone back at least once a week. The price is right, the service is great but best of all the food is delicious. We have brought friends and family there as well to enjoy this fantastic Tahoe find.

The menu is nothing out of the ordinary but the food is very good and well priced. The service was excellent. This is the place the locals with limited budgets seem to eat so you know it can't be bad. Not a great location but do you want to pay double for a view or get a good meal that is far lower in cost than your typical tourist restaurant. The shrimp fajitas were delicious with fresh shrimp and fresh corn tortillas.The salsa bar was also a big plus.

Tired and hungry from a day of hiking in the mountains, we scrapped our plan for dinner at an upscale restaurant and opted for some simple, filling Mexican food at Jalisco Grill.

Hidden at the back of a strip mall, Jalisco is a low-budget operation. A lovely young woman greeted us and explained the procedure: order first (very inexpensive!), select a drink (we opted for bottled beer), take your bowl of chips, select your salsa from a variety of self-serve options, and find a table to wait for your entrée. It wasn’t a long wait. Our food arrived just a few minutes after we sat down, huge portions, enough for the most demanding appetite. They tasted okay, not strongly spiced; I spread hot salsa on my giant burrito. It was simple and filling, but not memorable. The salsas were the most interesting flavors.

The verdict: It’s hot, it’s fast, it’s cheap, and it tastes okay.

After hiking we were hungry and tired decided to try this place after reading the reviews.
First it was hard ro find even with a GPS. A hole in the wall.
Useful info : this place does not accept credit cards.
The menu is very limited and what we had was disappointing. My burrito with beef was very plain and somehow dry. My husband's quesadillas were better.
The service is wonderful but we have eaten much better Mexican food in Arizona and New Mexico.
That said this was the cheapest meal we ever had but far from the best.
