Profiled in the Pitch and reviewed on Check, Please!, brothers Joel and Sergio Palacios opened Real Jalisco to serve the authentic cuisine their mother—a native of Jalisco, Mexico—taught them to cook. At their two locations, one newly opened in Kansas City in the fall of 2013, the brothers pride themselves on introducing diners to the traditional Mexican dishes—including more than a dozen shrimp dishes—that cull flavor from ingredients such as sautèed squash blossoms and cactus.
