While visiting I.F. we were hungry for Mexican food. We were very pleased with the food at Jalisco's ( location #2). According to our waiter, there are 217 dishes to choose from! The complementary chips were fresh and crisp and came with salsa and refried beans. My husband got the carne asada and shrimp, I got the pollo la crema. Both dishes were delicious. Entrees are served with rice and your choice of beans ( black, refried or ranchero). We enjoyed our dinner outside on the small patio overlooking the river. Very enjoyable!

We ate at the 17th street location in a strip mall.

Pluses: Very good chips, salsa and margaritas.
Minuses: Service can be slow; food often dry; restaurant dirty and worn

Food is good by Idaho Falls standards. The main thing we noted was that there was no enchilada sauce or any kind of sauce on our entrees...only lots of cheddar cheese. This made what otherwise was tasty food quite dry. My recommendation would be for the chefs to add some sauces to the entree plates and reduce the amount of cheese.

Service can be spotty, so of you go on a Friday or Saturday evening, you may get some things quickly and some things slowly.

The restaurant is well-worn and could use an update (new carpet and booth cushions to name 2) as well as a good scrubbing.

This came highly recommended by hotel staff. It was good but nothing really special. The atmosphere/decor is a bit outdated. The women's bathroom was really awful - dingy & run down. The location was nice - close to hotel and the river trail.
