Our new favorite Mexican restaurant in Nampa

The food is probably the best Mexican we've had in the Treasure Valley in quite some time. Service was good, quantity was generous, and prices were reasonable. The ONLY reason not to give it 5 stars was the ambiance. The day we were there, the flies inside the building were awful (the server... read more

We have eaten at Jalapeno's at least 2 dozen time and we have loved the authentic Mexican cuisine we have received. Last Saturday we both ordered a Rib Eye steak smothered in onions, mushrooms and cheese. My wife ordered hers medium and I ordered mine medium rare. When a different waiter brought our steaks, I asked which one was which... More

Just want to tell you we went to Jalapenos today for lunch and they found out my husband was a Vietnam Veteran. Erma the owner came over to the table thanked him and thanked me for being a very supportive wife. She also served us our food. When we were done eating the waitress came up to us and said... More

Amazing authentic Mexican food! Just go. You won't be disappointed. So much food that was so good it's hard to list. Deep fried ice cream, shrimp cocktail, shrimp enchiladas, Carne Asada, margaritas, and churros. Best part of it all? The service was fast, friendly and just wonderful. Enjoy!

Not too bad. We went around 330, just missed the end of lunch pricing ( ends at 3). Kids meals are just 2 dollars when you order an adult meal. Waiter and staff were very friendly, service was quick and food was hot. Many good wasn't bad. I chose #10, a burrito and enchilada. I would choose something else next... More

Great chips and salsa, both tasted fresh. Most food on the menu is “lightly fried” meaning deep fried, period. Restaurant was clean with friendly service. Food is about the same as in other Mexican restaurants in this area. White cheese sauce is interesting choice. Overall good homemade food, good value.

We love the food here. Best chips and salsa anywhere in Treasure Valley. Superb menu. We can always find something that everyone loves at Jalepeno's. Modestly priced and casual atmosphere. I don't think we have ever ordered anything here that we did not like. Very authentic Mexican foods!
