what is Jalisco Taqueria & tequilA?


Our Vision

We chose to name our restaurant after the iconic coastal state of Jalisco, Mexico- a special place viewed as an emblem of Mexican culture, history and cuisine. 


Seafood, pork and beef are essential in Jalisco’s culinary scene and we’ve brought the authentic recipes to James Island. Jalisco and South Carolina are both coastal states and you will find seafood as an important staple in cuisine. We honor the traditions of where this food started, using fresh, local ingredients to make traditional dishes that are savory and delicious.  Chef Michael Harvey has assembled a team that is passionate about cooking this cuisine and bringing ideas to Charleston that exemplify Jalisco, MX. 

The bar area is spacious and inviting.  Our bartenders enjoy crafting fresh margaritas using simple organic ingredients.  Our tequila selection is as varied and diverse as Jalisco.  We offer many different flight options to try these different tequilas.  Sit back relax and watch a game on one of our 6 televisions. 


We have plenty of outdoor patio space, cornhole, foosball and an area to let the kids be kids.
