I tried the restaurant based on its reviews, and I was not disappointed. It was a bit difficult to find via GPS but definitely worth the effort. The server was friendly and prompt. I ordered guacamole to go with the chips and salsa. The serving size was large and not one bite remained. Yum! Try one of the Cuban specialities.... More

Based on positive reviews I have wanted to try Jalapeno's for a couple years. We finally had the opportunity to drop in after car shopping and we were very impressed. Everything we ordered was flavorful and cooked to perfection. We look forward to dining here again, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

A diner will be so surprised to walk into the door of a restaurant in a strip shopping center, next to a Dollar Store (a good one at that) and enter a classy, elegant, serene, beautiful restaurant and be greeted by the owner Gonzalo with his genteel Spanish accent. The food is excellent. There are Mexican and Spanish dishes, anything... More

Located in a shopping center with a Home Depot, this restaurant may be overlooked by other than locals. The food is wonderful. Spanish/Portugese fare with additional seafood entrees. There is a separate room in the back of the restaurant for large parties. Service is friendly and prompt. atmosphere inside is in the Mediterranean. Loads of parking. Pricing reasonable, portions generous.

I have been going here for years. Great ambiance, excellent and wide array of wines, house made sangria, and a multitude of tapas too many to detail. The namesake, Jalapeno, is a lightly battered Jalapeno pepper stuffed with minced chicken, all white meat, and a white sauce with a cheesy reduction. Truly great. Also have a great happy hour with...

We drove to Annapolis to attend a community dance last night and decided we'd leave early and eat dinner there. After reading the reviews and looking at the location of the dance, we decided on Jalapeno's. What a fantastic choice! We arrived at 5:30pm (Saturday night), were seated immediately, and our waiter Geoffrey was prompt in greeting us and providing... More

So we went to Jalapeño because the reviews were so good. The food was good--although not great. But our server had such an attitude when we didn't order drinks or appetizers. We did not stay long tying up her table, so I'm sure she still made out fine. But we did not appreciate her attitude. Perhaps she was not having... More

My husband and I were in Annapolis and stopped here based on the positive TA reviews. This is one of the few times we've been disappointed. Our server was not very courteous. We couldn't figure out if it was due to the packed dining room or the fact that we were obviously the youngest couple there (lates 20's early 30's).... More

One does not go to Annapolis for Spanish/Mexican food but we happened upon Jalapeños and are glad we did! One of the owners is Spanish. The other, Mexican from food haven Oaxaca. The resulting menu is marvelous! We stopped in for lunch. I had Paella, a house specialty. It was excellent! All the food we ordered exceeded our expectations. The... More
