Mixed Mexican

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... read more

We loved it here! It was later in the evening when we were here, but our food was served quick and fresh. Guacamole was bland, but everything was delish!

I have been here twice. My first visit was not positive and probably would not have gone back. However, I was invited to attend a birthday gathering so I went looking at giving them the benefit of the doubt. Well, they lived up to my first experience and assured that I will never be back. The food was bland and... More

My recent visit to jalapeños was great.my wife and I went for there all you can eat tacos. We had their chicken tacos with hardshell ' s. They were great and the staff was excellent. It's definitely worth it and highly recommended.

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.

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
