Jalisco Grill is an example of a certain type of restaurant that can be found in the area – not tiny, but certainly not large, cooking up authentic ethnic food, family-owned and making a go of it by virtue of a lot of hard work. In this case, the food is Mexican, as is the decor. Jalisco Grill is on Lake Tahoe Boulevard, which means that it’s not entirely off the beaten path and does get some visibility to tourists to the basin. But it is by no means a high-profile restaurant, and the quaint feel of the place is heightened by the fact that it is a cash-only establishment. The upshot of it all is that Jalisco Grill is a good choice if you’re looking for decent food at a decent price in a decent atmosphere.
