Good food and service

I had not been here since they moved from their previous location. We went in a week night and the service was very prompt. We had fajitas for two and it was a generous portion,served sizzling hot. My daughter had the tacos. The chips and salsa and queso dip were very good. We enjoyed our meal and... read more

My husband and I have been going here for years. Everything is home made, and family run... Amazing group of people! Food is priced wonderfully, and you can always find a coupon in the entertainment book, or in the mentor ads.

Had dinner here with a friend and was impressed! Food was well worth the price! We left stuffed with food still on our plates! Went on a Friday night and was busy but not too loud and could enjoy a conversation without yelling

Jalapeno Loco moved to 7501 Mentor Avenue, just down the road to another shopping center. It changed names when it moved but has since changed back. I went dinner once, prices were average and food was just average. I really wanted to try their poblano white cheddar soup, however, when I asked to substitute it for the tortilla soup listed...

Unfortunately, this Mexican restaurant which prepared good Mexican food has closed its doors and gone out of business.

Dont know whats going on here, but this place is going downhill, fast. Went here twice in may, and both times had bad service. Food is average. With so many mexican restaurants around, you can skip this one, and choose another.

This restaurant \has the name Jalapeno Loco on the building and online. I got a $20 for $10 coupon on "LivingSocial.com" just to give it a try. Great food, great service and certainly someplace that I'd go to again. Just enough food for a very nice price. It took a while to get the check. But, the server was very... More

My family and I eat at jalepeno locos regularly and have never had a bad meal or poor service. The food is always tasty and bountiful. Definitely worth the try.

They screwed up both of our orders and we both were sick the rest of the night after eating there. The food wasn't very good. I would stay far away from here. It makes Taco Bell look like a 5 star restaurant.

What? Are you kidding me? Jalopeno Loco's is owned by my neighbor and his family. They do NOT employ illegals there. My neighbor and his family work there, work hard and the food is fantastic. Charlie Waffles (don't even ask me how he got that name-it's a long story) is almost always my waiter and he'll show you photographs of... More
