Perfectly good food

This is your standard American Mexican food. Nothing stands out as exceptional but it's all pleasant food. Service is good. We visit a few times a year.

We arrived late on a Friday night, almost 10, and they close at 10:30. We were greeted by a friendly hostess, seated immediately, and waited on promptly. The food was incredible, large portions and very tasty. The margaritas were amazing. Service was excellent. We will be back!

Got into town late late and we met up with our daughter who moved to the LEX last year. despite the fact that we made it into the restaurant right before closing, the staff was very welcoming and gracious in serving us (despite probably being ready to go home!). Our food came out fresh, hot and perfectly prepared right down... 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

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, light on the veg. Great... More
