Pozole was good. Margarita was tasty. Fish tacos were OK. Selections were overpriced. We asked for some cheese for my daughter who is 5 yrs old and they charged us $9.49 for a small plate of melted cheese. She liked it but I did not like the price. When I asked for a reduction in price, I was told that... More

Jalapeno's has the best Pozole hands down. I tried it other places , but nothing compares. They like to use a lot of cheese sauce in many of their dishes, but that's fine by me. I don't know how 'authentic' they are, but I've never had a bad meal here!!

The whole family loved the food. We all got different dishes and each one was great. Excellent salsa and chips! The margaritas were very tasty.

Fabulous shrimp fajitas, huge shrimp. Great tasting veggies. Rice is very good. We had the pork nachos too and they were great.

We had a Groupon for this place, so we decided to give it a try. Never was excited about ANY chain restaurants, but what the heck. I ordered a combo, chile relleno, cheese enchilada, and a pork taco. What was delivered was a soupy mess. Couldn't tell where the chile or the enchilada were located on the plate. Taco was... More

I don't think this place has excellent food but if you are starving it will suffice. It just seems like the place is fizzling out. I do like a few things they have on the menu: guac, hand-shaken margarita and steak fundido. We eat here maybe once a year and only because my mom will ask me to take her... More

You would not believe it if you looked around. The restaurant was full of NW Indiana residence that enjoy quantity over quality. There was nothing that we touched that it could have deemed passable. Typically some aspect of this type of restaurant is home made, like the salsa or chips. Not here. The biggest insult came from the Fajita itself.... More

Food was wiped on the floor and people were... More

It was our first time here and we had probably the best mexican food we've ever had. I had the shrimp enchiladas, a newer menu item and it was a little spicy but so incredible flavorful, I've never had anything so good. Plenty of very large shrimp and delicious. My husband had a steak dish which was also good but... More

Requeste to switch tables from a waiter (table to a booth), we were told we could move. As soon as we sat down a rude waiter came by and said we shouldn't have done that and basically scolded us for requesting to move. Had a groupon and he was very rude with explaining the information. Wanted seperate checks and he... More
