This was reasonably priced and quality food. The staff was extremely hospitable. Glad I found out about this place. I will return for sure. No beer on draft, just bottles.

Excellent food, great menu, great drinks, fast service and the most friendly staff! Don't miss out on the queso blanco and guacamole. Very impressive! My family and I enjoyed our dinner experience at Jalapenos.

The food was better than expected! The fajita burrito was great! Great service too! Located in the parking lot across from the Hyatt Place Hotel.

I can't think of a bad thing to say about the place. The service was fast. The place was very clean. The chicken enchilada was very good. The manager and everyone working there was very nice and helpful. The salsa was hot/spicy just the way my husband likes it. If you don't like hot/spicy salsa you might want to ask... More

Having read the many positive reviews and ranking I decided to try Jalapenos on a Sunday afternoon. Although there were plenty of seating/tables available I stood at the front counter waiting to be seated for a very long time. Not sure why things were moving so slowly but eventually was escorted to a table. The television was showing a soccer... More

We have been coming here for a couple of years, and we have never been disappointed. We are seated quickly, chips and salsa arrive sometimes before you have time to sit down. The white salsa is excellent, sweet and spicy. The chicken chimichanga is always full of meat (not always the case at other restaurants) and the rice and beans... More

I stopped at the Jalapeños Mexican Restaurant for lunch after wanting something more than fast food. Jalapeños had a varied and extensive lunch menu to go along with the regular one. Most places that I've been to only had a few options for lunch, but it was almost a full menu here. They also provided chips and salsa with each... More

The service was great, as always! I love their fish tacos. The beer is cold, the chips are warm, and their salsa is fresh. I highly recommend this place if you like Mexican.
