Regional Mexican
Jalisco Norte is a journey through Mexico without ever leaving the table. Executive Chef José Meza, who was born and raised in Mexico, takes diners on a culinary experience with his nostalgia for Mexican cuisine and expertise in some of the world’s top restaurants. From Martin Berasategui, a Michelin three-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain to the best restaurant in the world, NOMA in Copenhagen, Denmark, Chef Meza has taken his learnings from each experience to create a truly unique dining experience for patrons here at Jalisco Norte. Meza’s dishes reflect Mexican heritage and tradition, while sticking to the philosophy of obtaining only the highest-quality ingredients and maintaining standards of high-end service required of the best restaurants. He draws inspiration from his family. During his travels through his home country from Oaxaca, Puebla and Yucatan, and from those towns, he crafted menu items that pay homage to its people, cultures and customs.

Service was a smidge off and for such a busy night not totally unexpected, but our water glasses/chips were left empty at least 3 times. Food was outstanding. Each of us ate different entrees and sides and all were spectacular- very authentic and the flavors were intertwined wonderfully! Will be back- thank you for a wonderful experience on our palates!

The ambiance was great - very loud and busy but a great experience over all. The service was a tad slow but not horrible. The drinks are WAY over priced for what they are. The food was delicious.

Food was great! Love the seating area known as the treehouse. I would dine early for shorter wait times and good seating.

I wouldn’t recommend the steak- very salty.

Great location, very loud environment, and found the prices to be too high for the quality and amount of food served . The service was outstanding. the appetizers were not a share able amount for two people. The main entries don't come with sides and is served alacart. Again, amount and the quality is lacking.

My wife and I went the evening of May 26th. If you’re not a native to Dallas...make sure you turn into the walking mall and head to the back near Tom Thumb. You can’t really see it from the street.

Anyway, very good food in an upscale but completely unpretentious atmosphere which can be hard to find in that neighborhood. Service was 5 out 5. Outstanding. Everyone is happy and friendly here.

Drinks are great too. I had the carne asada: very tasty, nice cut of meat, and well-presented. Sauce on the side w/it set it off perfectly. My wife had the chicken enchiladas. We also had quesa fundido w/chorizo. This is REAL chorizo and really good.

Salsas and sauces are delicioso! We will be back and is highly recommended.

An excellent restaurant in every way. Impeccabble, knowlegable service. Warm and festive atmosphere. Excellent food. Fresh, authentic, beautifully presented - everything tasted perfect. I am very picky about restaurants and have eaten around the world. Jalisco is worth the visit. A must if you are in Dallas. Great for 2 up to large groups.

I would recommend, but would caution on what to order.

I had the halibut and the quality of the food was not up to the standard I have experienced there before. Seemed very over-cooked.

Food was average, guacamole was really good, but the chicken tacos...the fried chicken tasted like it was a frozen chicken nugget on a tortilla. Our server went on and on about menu items and took WAY too long explaining them. I forgot her name but it was pretty annoying and awkward.

Mother's Day dinner. Food was superb, great flavors and lots of options at many price levels. Dessert was over the top. Ambiance is good, staff clearly paid attention to the guests. Near end of meal, couple with quiet young child were seated nearby. Child suddenly became very loud (it's happened to all of us). As couple struggled, staff left empty tables around them seating newer guests further away to make best of situation. They also stopped by to see if they could offer the parents anything to help. I was appreciative of their efforts even though we were about to leave.

This time we went for mother’s day, but we have been on multiple occasions and have always had a wonderful experience. The waitstaff is very helpful, and the chef is always willing accommodate for dietary restrictions. My mom and I have celiacs (gluten free) and my sister is vegan, and we’ve always left feeling full and satisfied. As for drinks, the Rita Champ is top notch!

Worst meal ever. I was not informed about limited menu. I came here because my daughter is vegan and has eaten her before with some options to eat. No accommodations to help her. I was forced to order a meal for two so I could accommodate my wife. Catus salad was not delivered with either meal. That says is included. I returned the quest that was like water and second batch was just as bad. I didn't think it is possible to make bad quest. Never ever will I go to this place again
