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

Best salsa in the valley. Really good frozen margaritas. Very good food and service. Nice outdoor seating area. I've never walked away disappointed in anything I've tried there.

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.
