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

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

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.

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.
