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.

Server was very slow. We didn' t receive our meals until 40 minutes after ordering. Other customers were served before us, that came in and sat after us. Very poor job.

We eat here 3 or 4 times a month and we have never had a bad meal. The service is always great. From tacos to taco salads to enchiladas have that great authentic Mexican flavor. Great margaritas and cold beer complement your meal. We have tried other Mexican restaurants in the area but always come back to Jalepenos.

We went with a big group and everyone's food was so good. I had the California burrito with shrimp and spouse had the enchiladas especial both very good. Margarita's were awesome. Salsa was great and they add a bean type dip which is yummy. Owner was there and was really friendly and helpful. Great time. Will be back would recommend.

I ordered a dish with Halibut, but what I got instead was Talapia. Really not happy to pay top price for bottom feeding fish. Guess they figured we wouldn't notice the difference. Haven't been back since.

The waiter was Argumentative & rude. Took our order after arguing with us. It took over 30 minute to get food. When I asked for the bill he took 25 minutes to get it to us. We will never retune. Food was cold and just OK.

I was there for lunch and ordered the chicken chimichanga. The beans were runny and they didn't have much flavor.Same with the rice...no flavor. The chimichanga itself was good, but did not care for the sweet white sauce they put on it. The service was good, but the place was noisy for a lunchtime, people hollering and we were setting...

We stopped here just because it was convenient. We really had no idea what to expect so we played it safe. I ordered the spinach enchilada, not expecting it to be anything special, but it really was. It was jump out of your mouth fresh, made with tomatoes and onions and had really wonderful flavor. I would definitely stop here... More

The very best Margarita's you'll find in the Treasure valley, I promise! The food is absolutely wonderful. None of that frozen, microwaved, then oven finished stuff you get at the other places. Each recipe is home made from scratch. The beef is really exceptional and flavorful. I've spoken to the proprietor on several occasions (Irma) and talked to her about... More
