“Think Bland”
Review of Jalisco Grill

Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 May 2017

We stopped here on a recommendation of a local who said this was the best Mexican food in town..........Ummm No!

First, the food was really bland, I mean no flavor hardly at all so we had to douse our lunch with lots of salsa which fortunately was very flavorful and added some needed taste to our lunches.

Second the place was small but kind of clean which was good and the prices were also reasonable too so that was a plus.

Third , the service was minimal which goes along with the (cash only?) lower prices so that was okay too.

But I really can't understand why this place rates so high when the food was so tasteless. Isn't tasty food usually the main reason people eat somewhere? Good flavorful food should be job one right? Thank goodness they had a decent salsa bar!

We won't be back as I'm absolutely sure there is better, tastier food to be had at the many other Mexican places we found scattered all over town, we passed a dozen different Mexican places today.

We had vegetarian nachos and lengua tacos. Oh so yummy!!

The tacos were so tender and the corn tortillas steamed and delicious!

The nachos had amazing beans, salsa, and guacamole.

Did I mention the prices are amazing. 5 dollars for the nachos and 1.50 for the tacos!!

We looked up TripAdvisor for this place, place in nice and cozy, mostly locals go there, small place like family run business, they accept cash ONLY, service was good and workers wear very kind, food was ok if you want a quick bite of Mexican food, maybe more flavor in their food would make this place much better, again this is not a fancy place just a little restaurant ran with a small crew, I think for lunch this place would do it, dress casual because there are mostly locals.prices are very reasonable.

We were searching for a Mexican Restaurant. Jalisco's Grill serves authentic Tacos, Tamales, Tostadas and the like. They can add more heat if so desired. English and Spanish are spoken throughout the restaurant. If we return to South Lake Tahoe, we'll stop by Jalisco's Grill again.

Note: Don't confuse Jalisco's Grill with Jalisco's Taqueria, they're not the same.
