We had a business dinner here, I had never dined in only takeout one time. I was leery of it being in a strip mall but when we walked in it was packed! The service was average but the food was fantastic. I had the ribeye steak, cooked perfectly and was delicious. I brought take out home for my wife.... More

But once I walked inside we quickly learned that they had just opening at 4pm and happy hour was from 4 until 7 can't go wrong with Happy Hour on a Sunday. the food... More

One of the best kept secrets in Annapolis, I have been many times and always enjoy the food. Always a great experience. Don't let the location fool you. There are many choices nowadays in the Annapolis area, if you want great food, good atmosphere and reasonably priced try Jalapeno's. You will go back!

Two of the best meals I've ever eaten have been here. It's simply one of the best Latin restaurants north of Miami an south of New York. The owner is Spanish, the chef Latin-American. They've got it covered.
