Recently I was out running errands and ended up in the Albertson’s parking lot on Washington St. My husband and I were both hungry and thought we would see if there was a small sandwich place in the center. What we stumbled upon was a small Mexican restaurant called Flor de Jalisco. What a find!

This is a small place and not fancy by any means, but it was clean, the waitress friendly, the service good and the food was amazing. First let’s start with the salsa: 2 types of red (mild and hot) and 1 green salsa (medium), all 3 bursting with flavor; some of my favorite salsa for sure. I love being able to taste the cilantro in my salsa. The guacamole was freshly made and delicious. We were already off to a good start.

Then we were served our entrees. I chose to have one fish taco and one shrimp taco both of which were stuffed full of yummy goodness. They were served with huge portions of beans with cheese and rice for only 10.95. My husband had the carnitas burrito, also very large and served with rice and beans for 9.95.

Both were absolutely delicious making ‘flavor’ the word of the day. Our waitress tried to get us to try the flan, which she said is ‘the best in town’ but we were too full. We promised we would be back and save room next time. If you’re looking for really good, fresh Mexican food, at a great price then check out Flor de Jalisco. They have a full menu and serve beer. They have only been open about 6 months.

Flor de Jalisco is open Monday-Friday 11am-9pm and Saturday & Sunday 10am-9pm. Located at 42215 Washington St. Suite G. Call 760-636-0380.
