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!

The waiter accidentally placed my order wrong. After my food arrived he corrected the problem, the manager also came out 2 times to make sure we were happy. Then the... More

A little old looking aesthetically, but it is clean. The food is good too. People are nice and friendly. I was not impress with the margarita because the ice was not blended enough, kinda hard to swallow without getting brain freeze. I could have bought another glass but I was turned off by how I have to struggle to chug... More

I traveled from Montana to the Caldwell-Nampa area this past weekend looking for real estate. My nephew Kris, who lives in Caldwell, suggested this restaurant and said we wouldn't be sorry! That was an understatement as the food was amazing and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The prices were very competitive and the food bursting with authentic flavor.... More

Start with fresh made tortilla chips with salsa, AND bean dip. Most places charge extra for the bean dip. Good fresh food and fast friendly service. We have been here many times and always enjoy the freshness of the ingredients.
