Mi Jalisco Opens in North Side

Mexican fare is the latest choice on MacArthur Avenue.

Posted By on Thu, Sep 8, 2016 at 11:30 AM

North Side finally was finally able to welcome Mi Jalisco Family Mexican Restaurant when it opened its doors at 4019 McArthur Ave. in the old Tastebuds American Bistro space this summer after several months of anticipation.

Once a veritable restaurant desert, North Side now boasts classic diner fare at Dot’s Back Inn, family-friendly and special-diet choices at the Mill on MacArthur, Greek cuisine at Omega Grecian Restaurant, pizza at Zorba’s Express — all on MacArthur Avenue. Around the corner on Bellevue Avenue, you can stop in for burgers and fries at the Northside Grill or go more upscale at Italian restaurant Enoteca Sogno. Choice — we all love plenty of choices, especially when we’re hungry.

But back to MacArthur’s latest: Mi Jalisco offers authentic Mexican dishes that include tacos, chilanquiles, burritos, tamales and other classics. There are four other locations in Amelia, Ashland, Ruther Glen and Urbanna.

Fun fact: Jalisco is a state in Mexico on the Pacific coast. And according to Wikipedia, most of the familiar things that define Mexico, including tequila, Mariachi music, rodeos, the sombrero and, best of all, the Mexican hat dance originated there.
