The decades-old Tacos Jalisco is holding firm against the remodels and condo buyouts approaching inexorably from three directions. Inside, the look is half strip-mall Mexican and half ranchero, and the menu? Pure Colorado Mexican, with a little Tex-Mex, a little Norteno, some Michoacan influences and a healthy dose of big burritos, cheesy enchiladas and excellent seafood dishes. While a quick bag of takeaway is advised at most strip-mall taquerias, Jalisco warrants a sit-down visit.
