“We really like this place”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Best sit down mexican food in Butte, and best Margaritas for sure! It's Montanan, so I don't expect much, but it's good. As a native Arizonan I usually have high expectations for Mexican food, this place, although not very authentic, and very toned down in spices and seasoning (i am assuming to suit local tastes) is still pretty darn good. I like the combo plates, enchiladas and chili relleno are good, the beans are delicious. If you want to try something different they have a dish, I believe called molcajete, it's amazing. Get it with shrimp, Yummy!

“Just Average”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We saw this and were ready for dinner so we stopped in. It is attached to a casino, but other than sharing a doorway, there did not appear to be much of a connection. This is actually a chain of restaurants with 13 locations.

In short, everything was pretty much average. Chips and salsa were typical, salsa was the raw kind (raw onions, raw tomatoes, no cooking), kind of watery. My wife had Chicken in chipotle sauce. Taste was good, but sauce was quite thin. I had a beef chimichanga. It was WAY tiny, well under half the size of any chimichanga I remember. Taste was OK, what there was of it.

Service was marginal on the food, way slow on the drinks, no "how is your meal," etc. Only really positive note is that the liquor was cheap for a restaurant: glass of wine $2, shot of tequila $1.75, bottle of beer $3.25.

Overall, not bad, but we will find better places for the rest of our stay in Butte.

“Not much heat”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Stopped in for dinner after a long day on the road. I ordered the chile verde burrito with beans and rice. Rice a bit dry, but the beans were tasty, The pork on the burrito was tasty, but the chile verde seemed to lack much character. I expected at least a little heat.

“It was ok.”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

Great service and friendly, but staff seemed pretty occupied with visiting with themselves. Price was good , portions excellent but taste really lacked. Food very bland but great astrosphere and cold beer.

“Great, authentic MEXICAN food!”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

The food here is neither "Tex-Mex," "Cal-Mex" or even "West-Mex." The owners/operators are from interior Mexico and their food shows it! Everything on the menu is outstanding with giant portions for the really hungry. Juan and Flavia, husband/wife owner/operator team are very attentive and do their best to assure every patron's satisfaction. We often go there as a family...they know us and treat us like kin! There are several Hispanic restaurants in Butte....none compare to the Jalisco!!
