Good fajitas and attentive wait staff

This place looks a little sketchy from the outside, but if you can get past the sombrero-clad jalapeno pepper, you're in for a treat. We had the fajitas and they were really tasty, if a bit on the overdone side. If you love the veggies, you might be disappointed because they're heavy on the meat... read more

Love love love the margaritas! The food is well-prepared - someone knows what they're doing in the grill area. Fresh vegetables, good tortillas, good service, good sauces....good service, good prices. One of our very favorites anywhere!

We moved here from across the country a month ago and part of the downside of moving is losing all your beloved eating places. Our mexican place at our old place was frequently visited and praised by various shows on food network so our standard was high but Jalepenos is a great rebound love. Original menu, everything we have tried... More

I did not like the place, way to noisy when i was there, but the food is very good though, just to much going on all the time for me..

Four meals were ordered and four meals were not eaten! The food was too bad to eat... even the rice. It is high priced compared to most restaurants. Not recommended at all.

You get no warning about how spicy everything is and if it says you get queso with your meal it's fried and impossible to dip anything in. I don't understand it

I like this place, the staff is friendly and patient, the food is of good quality and served quickly. I reccomend the crevecia- cold spicy soup of shrimp and veggies.

This place is friendly, festive, and colorful. The waiter was friendly and helpful with his recommendations. Best part might be the salsa, but all of the homemade sauces are tasty. Went here with my wife one Friday night and we enjoyed it. I had a fish dish (don't remember the name now) and the green sauce that came with it... More

Called about 30 minutes in advance and they were set up for a group of 18 when we arrived for a late lunch on a Saturday. Chips and Salsa available while we perused the menu. Lots of choices for the entire family. Generous portions - Single Fajita order plenty for two to share. Friendly service. A little difficult to find... More

My husband and I often meet friends at Jalapeno's on Friday nights. The food is varied and I've enjoyed several entrees. Id recommend the Pollo Parilla and Burro To Te but there are some excellent pork and shrimp dishes. The margaritas are excellent - no mixes used there. The drinks are real. And birthday night is always fun with the... More
