Looks like a tiny dive, but the service and good are incredible. The beef tacos taste like steak- so yummy! Salsa and chips SE fresh and tasty. Guacamole is fresh and quesadillas are yummy. Try the tres leches cake too!!!

“We LOVE Jalisco!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2013 via mobile

Tacqueria Jalisco is one of our favorites. First off, the service is outstanding. Owners, Maria and her son, Jorge, are delightful and they make everyone feel welcome the second they walk in the door. Unlike most small taquerias, Jalisco has a lovely decor and atmosphere, with artful details that add to its charm. And last, the food is so tasty! Guacamole is fresh and flavorful, with plenty of lime and cilantro. Our favorite dishes include the sincronizadas, tortas, tacos, and pupusa. You can make pretty much anything vegetarian and they even have cactus as an option (surprisingly tasty!). This is a little known gem in Chattanooga, off the beaten path but so worth it!

“Taqueria Jalisco...Outstanding Authentic MEXICAN FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2013

I have been to this restaurant several times...primarily with my grandchildren . The food is always consistently excellent. The chicken fajitas are my favorite..my grandchildren order either tacos or other menu items. Try this restaurant...you will like it!

“Nice place to kick back.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013

We went into Taqueria Jalisco for a couple of cold brews after a long and unseasonably hot day in Chattanooga, and it was great. Delightful atmosphere, quick friendly service and some excellent complimentary salsas for snacking. Hit it up.

“Great Authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

If you are looking for Mexican cuisine that isn't your run-of-the-mill Amigos, then this place is for you! They make their guacamole on-order and it isn't that pasty green stuff you normally get, it's full of onions, cilantro and tomatoes. Tacos are great and the staff is very friendly. Look no further, you have found the best Mexican food in Chattanooga.
