Even if authentic Mexican isn't your thing, Jacala may still have something for you. There are dishes for dieters that include low-carb and no-carb options. If you have any other special dietary needs, the staff will do the best they can to accommodate you. There is also a good children's menu that has a few non-Mexican items on it that are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.
Everything at Jacala is homemade from the tortillas, tortilla soup, to the delicious guacamole that ranks amongst the best in the city. The carne guisada is delicious and doesn't have the big deposits of fatty meat the you find on some guisada dishes. Everything is very flavorful although occasionally too much salt is used on the lettuce and tomato that tops many of the dishes.
The bar is full service and features some of the strongest--and tastiest--margaritas around.
