Jalisco's is a local Mexican Restaurant with 2 locations in Idaho Falls - one on the river and one on 17th Street. I decided to visit the 17th Street location after reading reviews of both locations.


Jalisco's offers your typical huge menu of Mexican entrees. From burritos, to enchiladas, to fajitas, it's hard not to find something you will like here. A number of specials are offered. Also, they offer a selection of children's plates.

I ordered vegetarian fajitas and Mike ordered the chicken burrito. We both were pleased with our entrees. I recommend skipping the optional salad - it consisted of a plate of iceberg lettuce with a few tomatoes. As a bonus, chips and salsa and refried beans are provided while waiting for your entree.

On a side note, Idaho Falls magazine has continuously rated Jalisco's the best Mexican restaurant in the city.


Our waiter was very attentive and quickly brought over refills of drinks and chips. One of the friendliest waiters we have experienced in Idaho Falls to date.


Despite the bad location inside a strip mall, the atmosphere inside is pretty nice. It is decorated with a nice Mexican theme and we both enjoyed the lively vibe.

The River Parkway across from the Greenbelt is a great choice for anyone who wants to enjoy a nice workout, followed by lunch in a nice setting.

Final Remarks

Jalisco's is a great stop for Mexican food in Idaho Falls. I recommend this Mexican restaurant over the others I have tried in the region. Great food, service, and an authentic atmosphere make dining at Jalisco's a great evening out.
