I was in Buckhead yesterday and in the mood for a quick dinner. I decided to try Jalisco, a small restaurant in a rather reserved strip mall in south Buckhead. It turned out to be a surprisingly good choice. It has the feel of a neighborhood Mexican restaurant. The staff was entirely Hispanic, which isn't exactly what one expects in Buckhead. The atmosphere was low key.
I ordered a plate with an enchilada, a tamal, and a chile relleno. All three were good, with the chile relleno being my favorite. This is a nice, homey place with good, satisfying food. It's a pleasant change from the foodista atmosphere that one often finds in Buckhead.
