I'm just trying to save you money by posting this: much earlier today I went to Jaliscos on North Ave in Milwaukee's eastside. Don't bother wasting your money here. The food is mediocre/bland at best and despite being the only customers in the restaurant, we had to wait a looooong long time for our food. We ordered tacos de chorizo con huevo. That takes like, what, 5 minutes to make? It took about 30 minutes and the chorizo was so bland, no flavor. Our queso fondido was like a hunk of cheese dropped into a bowl of caldo and vegetables. So gross. Both waitresses were too busy eating to ask if we wanted any refills. I need a soda to wash this crap down, lady! I don't know who on the eastside you are fooling, Jaliscos, but it's not me. This is craptastic food that only tastes good if you're on your 15th beer. I'm so sad that I spent money here. Never again.
Worst Mexican Food we've Eaten to date – The staff was friendly and all, but the food could not have been much worse. The meat smelled funny, and we had upset stomachs by the time we left. We are the kind of couple that don't like to waste food, but we couldn't finish our tacos ;(
You get what you pay for! Which is the best! – I always order a steak burrito with a Bud Lite and my daughters absolutely have 2 order their chocolate cake 2 top off a great dinner! Luv it!
Overpriced Alcohol – Would not recommend this restaurant. Ordered a pitcher of margaritas, they charged $26 for essentially margarita mix, no tequila. The alcohol is significantly over priced, and the food is average. Cheap food, but you get what you pay for.
Nothing Special – I've been there a few times since I live 2 blocks away... Not great food, huge portions, but the meat is often gristly and below average. No free refills on soda. Service is usually quite good. I've had a few good meals, but the bad outweigh the good.
With a door that's almost always open, this homey chain serves straightforward Mexican favorites. – The Scene
Jalisco's service is good, though the occasional language barrier sometimes may cause the service to slow a bit. Tile floors, colorful Mexican blankets on the walls, Latin music, comfortable booths and tables provide a comfortable atmosphere.
Straightforward, no-frills Mexican and the authenticity shows. Known for its large burritos, Jalisco's eight varieties are a meal by themselves. One burrito could easily serve two. The guacamole is among the best in town--ripe, creamy and mild enough for the heat-uninitiated and children to enjoy. The fresh salsa contains diced tomatoes and is medium spiced with cilantro and chile. The chips, though, tend to be over-fried. The mole entrees are among the best on chicken or poured over enchiladas--dark, chocolaty and spicy sweet. Verde and roja enchiladas are also good covered with just enough sauce and Chihuahua cheese. They also serve tamales, steaks and parrillada--Mexican mixed grill.
All the chips and salsa... – The salsa fresco is the best I've ever had! I moved from Milwaukee 10 years ago, and when I visit family here, I never miss a chance to eat there, and can taste the flavor of the salsa even if only in my mind...Okay, yeah that's a bit greedy sounding, but it is excellent. The only way it could be better if it was free throughout your stay, and you didn't have to pay for another refill.
