Food was good, no negatives there. Margaritas were well received, made with fresh ingredients and not a mix. Need to try more items on the menu, we just had quesadilla which were very tasty.

My friend ordered nachos salty and soupy disgusted. My friend ordered wine and got 2 ounces of wine for six bucks! Mold growing on the wall and... More

Food was great, our party of four all enjoyed our meals. Service was good and the price reasonable. When we first pulled up I had low expectations but thankfully will be back.

Jalapenos has been the best Mexican Restaurant in Lexington Kentucky for years. The food is authentic and the service is always great.

If you want somewhere fairly cheap, this is a good place to go. The atmosphere is pretty dark and not as inviting as other places. You can get a really good cheap lunch special for a good amount of food but I will say it's not the best tasting. Not impressed with the refried beans or guacamole. The fajitas were... More

Visited this restaurant twice this month at lunch. The hostess is kind and willing to accommodate your seating preferences. Best salsa around! Love the environment and you can't beat the prices.

Give this place a try, you want regret it. Located in a shopping center so it's not much on the outside. The food is exceptional and the service is quick and friendly. Don't miss out.

The food was very good...I had the chicken flautas and the chicken was fresh and well cooked. The special margarita was delicious. We were a large group and they did a good job of bringing everyone's food out at the same time. Kept fresh chips coming while we waited! The queso is the best I've ever had!

We stopped in at Jalapenos because we were craving Mexican food and we were very impressed with both the service and the food. We didn't have to wait to be seated, the service was great, and the food came quickly. It tasted fabulous. I recommend the fruit pastries for dessert (can't remember what they were called, but oh my gosh... More

It's hard to find great tamales, but this restaurant does a nice job with this. Also, service was fast for lunch. I would definitely return.
