We ordered soup to start. I think she forgot about the soup until after our meal was ready. Then she remembered, brought the soup and our dinners sat to get cold. Finished the soup and she brought the warm plates. We didn't see her back at the table until we were almost done..:if I'd not been so hungry I would... More

We thought this place was really cute with great hand-crafted and painted furniture. Then we were really impressed with the food. Service was also great, and very friendly. We were in Wasilla for 3 days and chose this place twice.

Although everyone we saw in the restaurant was caucasian (the cook may or may not have been Mexican), the food and ambiance of the restaurant was semi-authentic.

If you want Mexican in Eagle River you have 3 choices. Jalepenos is the best. They have a lovely restaurant with attentive service and very good Mexican food. Its not gourmet, but its not Taco Bell either.

Since moving away in 2010 I always try and stop in when I am in town. I have yet to find anything on the menu I don't like and the staff always treats you like family.

We have eaten at Jalapenos for 4 years. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The food is fast, hot and yummy. Special orders don't upset them. They are always eager to please :)

I judge Mexican restaurants by the quality of their salsa and the chili realanos. The salsa at Jalapenos is thick with chunks of tomato and cilantro. It really sticks to your chips. The realano I ordered was well cooked with plenty of cheese and well formed chili pepper. The service in this new to Wasilla restaurant is excellent. Waiters were... More
