I love Mexican food. Authentic Mexican restaurants not only give you huge portions of food, but they also do it for cheap! One of my favorite Mexican places on the East side is Jalisco’s. They have delicious and strong margaritas and mojitos, which is an added bonus to the great food.
When we sat down to eat at Jalisco’s, they served us a basket of chips and salsa. The chips were still warm and not overly oily. The salsa was a tomato based salsa with cilantro, and has a good kick of spice. I ordered the Burrito con Chorizo dinner, which came with a burrito the size of my arm, a side of rice and beans, lettuce, sour cream, and guacamole, all for $9.25.
The rice was mild and cooked well, and the only problem was that I wished there was more of it! The beans were creamy and flavorful, and they were covered in gooey cheese, which made them even better. When I was given my burrito, I spread the guacamole over the top, put some lettuce over that, and drizzled it with the house made hot sauce. The burrito was stuffed to the brim with chorizo, lettuce and tomatoes. The chorizo wasn’t that spicy at all, but had all the good flavors of cumin and peppers. I would say even if you don’t like spicy food, you would be able to eat this burrito and be just fine. I was only able to eat half of my meal, because it was gigantic. It did hold up in the fridge just fine, and was still good to eat later in the day.
I will definitely go back and try something new, like their tacos or tostadas. Jalisco’s offers “taco Tuesdays and Thursdays”, so if you are looking for a deal, they’re the place to go.
