Birthday reservations and still crappy service

I reserved seating a week in advance for my birthday with family and friends. I called and confirmed my reservation two days prior to the event. We showed up and no-one at the restaurant had a clue we were coming. We had to wait 35 min for them to create a table and placings for our party of 10... read more

Los Cabos is the new name for Jalapenos restaurant. The decor is very Mexican and very good! The food was excellent. We arrived late for lunch and the place was empty. The gorgeous waitress, Laura, made sure that the wives were happy! They were very willing to modify their dishes to suit our preferences. Highly recommended!

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. They had a good selection to choose from and reasonable prices. The decor was festive and the servers were very friendly. I ordered the Chile Colorado burrito which was very tasty, although my...

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.
