Jalisco (Seattle, WA)


One of the things I love about my area of Capitol Hill is that I am walking distance from a variety of restaurants. Almost everytime LL and I walk to Jamjuree or 22 Doors or QFC we pass Jalisco’s, mention that we should check it out, but then continue on. Tonight we decided that after almost 3 years in this neck of the woods it was time to sample the neighborhood Mexican fare.

The food was very disappointing. This is not Mexican food. It’s a step up from Taco Bell (though without the ghetto pleasure there), and not even at the Taco Del Mar level. The cheddar on the enchiladas had almost an american cheese consistency, the sauces had no spice and minimal flavor, and the tortillas were maybe on par with what you buy at QFC: definitely not freshly made. Next time we’re hankering for nearby Mexican we’ll walk down to Galerias or Guaymas, or hop in the car to Gordito’s 🙂

    It’s really too bad that you didn’t enjoy the food at Jalisco’s. My family has been dining there for over 20 years and have rarely been disappointed by this family run restaurant. We have found the food to be consistently good. We also like the Mexican staff even if the accent can be difficult from time to time. And the number of Mexican customers who we have seen dining thereseem to enjoy it as well.
    This is a very moderately priced restaurant. For those who want gourmet food, expect to pay considerably more.

    I’m glad to hear that you had a better experience than me. I wasn’t looking for gourmet food, but I was looking for quality and taste at least on par with El Gallito or Tacos Guaymas (which is even more moderately priced as well).
