Best mexican Food in town...by far

We eat here at least 1 time per week. Food is great and is MILES ahead of the other Mexican options in Americus. Location is not good, no bar, and very small....I think that is what hurts them. I really hope they survive because their food is top notch.

While this place was conveniently located close to the university campus, evidently it couldn't keep enough business to stay open. It started strong, but now the sign says CLOSED.

We walked to the restaurant from the Americus Garden Inn... The food was delicious and ALOT of it. The service was on-point... We enjoyed our evening meal with the folks at El Jalapeno.

Chips dripping with grease, margaritas from a mix, food too salty, but then again, I'm pretty health conscious and picky. Service was great!

Yes, there is. El Jalapeño is good, solid food. Great pricing, good food, service was excellent. Food could be a bit spicier, but the thin tortilla chips and the spicy salsa were great.

El Jalapeno is under great, caring and truly hard working staff. They take care of you and you don't have to beg for a refill. They are quick and food is wonderful. I enjoy the atmosphere also. The prices are great.

Have now ordered takeout from here 3 times. Twice the order has been missing an item. Informed them of the latest error when I got home and received customer service as bland as the veggie fajitas. Want to like this place but they make it difficult to be a fan. Hope your experience is better than mine.

This is the very best Mexican Restaurant in Americus. The food is fantastic and they are very generous with their servings. The service, most of the time is where they exceed. The owner Louis is often on site and will walk around and socialize with the diners. The manager will also do the same. Once when I took a cranky... More

I have eaten here a number of times. The food is consistant and the service is good. I have never gotten a bad meal here nor ever had bad service. Usually the family orders fairly simple menue items but I will order something that while on the menue is not served too often to the locals. The things I have... More
