We heard about this place via a local. It's located on the backside of the building, so search by address and then go behind the building. Not a fancy place, so if you're trying to impress someone by cloth tablecloths, go elsewhere. If you're ok with ordering your $8.99 fish burrito at a wallpaper counter that is very tasty and filling served with some tortilla chips with 3 tv's to watch some sports in basic chairs with a salsa bar to dress your needs right there. The $1.50 tacos are small, but the meat tasted good for steak, pork or chicken that again you dress at the salsa bar to your own liking. Soda's are $2 in a bottle. The cashier was very friendly and this was our second visit here. It seemed like they try hard to serve good food in a clean environment. We'll be back. If you are looking for a Chevys type place, the one down the street is gone. We do like big meal size salads and they only have a smaller tostada her though.

Carnitas tacos are Fabulous! Excellent Salsa Bar fresh, clean and lots of variety. Real chips! The Best Refritos. Just passing through and with a turn to go around the block, we saw this place! So glad we stoped. Plenty of food to eat - you pick out what you want and sit down and they deliver it to your table. Very nice people and we are extremely satisfied!

We visited Jalisco Grill a few days ago and I had the carne asada plate, as well as a chile relleno. Everything was delicious, there was an awesome selection of sodas from Mexico (including the good Pepsi in a bottle made with cane sugar, not that high fructose stuff). Prices were very fair, portions were generous, they had several kinds of salsas to help yourself to, but watch out - the jalapeno pickled carrots are very hot, even for me. The staff was very friendly and the décor was really nice throughout the restaurant. The restaurant is located towards the back of a small row of businesses off the main drag. Its the kind of Mexican restaurant that I figure the locals go to, its that good.

Delicious mexican food, apparently family recipes and family run. At first we were concerned about the modest nature of the place, then the food convinced us we had chosen wisely. Soft drinks and beer only.

I have been here before and I recently returned with three friends because of the good food. The food is still very good. I had a cheese enchilada and beef taquitos while my friends ordered street tacos, a burrito and a torta. All of us were happy with our food. However, if you were to look up "hole in the wall", you may very well see a picture of this place. You enter and place your order at a very small counter. We did not see any menus as the options were written on the wall by the counter. There are not a lot of seating options. They gave us very small portions of corn chips, along with some small cups so that we could pick out our choice of salsas, which were very limited (I think there were about three to choose from). We all asked for water and we were shown to the location of some plastic cups. We scooped our ice cubes from a metal container inside a top-loader freezer. Most of the cubes were stuck together. It just did not appear sanitary. In fact, the whole (small) restaurant just did not feel clean.
