Every Friday Joel and I hit our favorite little Mexican joint, Jalisco, and every Friday I have the same old same old meal - Chicken Fajitas and a Midori Margarita. Now it might appear the same old meal every week but I swear that it is oh so good that there is really no reason for me to sample other items on the menu. I could even have a Burritto like the one in this photograph but there is no way on hell that I could consume a Burritto the size of a baby! On the other hand, maybe this is just a really, really tiny baby? Just a thought.
By now you might be thinking that you can go to a Jalisco anywhere in Seattle and they are all the same. Well, you my friend would sadly mistaken in your assumption. We have gotten to know Max, the Owner and Operator of Jalisco in Ravenna. He has done a great job in the couple of years since taking over the business from his Uncle and with a little help from the rest of the family who all help out at the restaurant. We have been returning to this place almost weekly for a couple of years now. I admit that there are other Jalisco's around Seattle and we have frequented a couple of them. Though the food is good the staff seem to be lacking that certain something that we have found here in Ravenna. So if you are in the mood for one awesome Margarita and maybe even a meal pop on down.
* Thanks must go to Seattle PI for the great photo
