I have seen several reviews on this restaurant so decided to try it. This seems to be a neighborhood place, with several customers that seem to be regulars from their greeting from and to the staff. While the food was good, I would not say that there was anything exceptional. The service was good and our food came quickly.

A friend of mine asked me to join him at Jalisco. He said it was a great Mexican restaurant. I had no problems-- good food and reasonable service at a reasonable price, but honestly-- nothing to make me want to drive the extra distance.

Any one around this restaurant needs to GO ..... Do not judge it by the location... We tried it after a Nashville visit and it is turned into a staple stop... I have tried 5 different meals and they were outstanding... The building and parking is simple but Dont pass This food up... (ask for the "house hot sauce")

Great food, and wonderful service. Large portions. My husband got fajitas and it would have easily been enough for both of us.

Well, it is okay, just another mid-range Mexican restaurant.... and, they all serve about the same thing that comes from the distributors.... I guess it is above average but, there is nothing to jump up and down about..... The only add is that it has the only bar service from Lebanon to Sparta along Hwy 70... Another point is that...

I saw somebody wrote a negative review of this restaurant, so I went back this evening, and it's still very good. It is a family-owned place in a small shopping center, and it is definitely not fine dining. But it is perfectly clean, and the food is still excellent. It's not bland or boring. If it's not spicy enough for... More

How this place ever rated as excellent is beyond me. Dirty restaurant, filthy condiments & loo. Bland, boring, awful tasteless food. 'Spice' and flavour is something this restaurant is totally clueless about. The guacamole and salsa were straight out of a tin and than diluted! ICK!

Highly recommended. We have been here many times and it is the best Mexican food you will get in Tennessee. The folks who run it are super friendly and they will make sure you are treated right. I like the combo plate with the chile relleño, burrito, and enchilada, but their menú is much more extensive than that. Dos Equis... More
