We ate there because it was close to the hotel and highly recommended by the hotel staff. We had the steak tampiquena and the chicken in mole sauce. Chips and salsa were free and given to us to snack on prior to the meal. The steak tapiquena is a thin steak sauteed with green peppers, onions and spices and came... More

Great time here. Came in late. Assured we were not to late. Never felt rushed. Server was attentive, friendly and efficient. Food was served hot and delicious. Would definitely return.

Large portions, light prices, friendly fast, service and excellent food. Especially like the shrimp fajitas and ice cold coronas.

No different than any of the other four Mexican restaurants in Chester in terms of the menu. Must have changed hands as the menu that pulls up on line is interesting and inspired, which this is not. If you will have one meal out this weekend, don't wast it here. If you insist, don't get the chili, it's disgusting.

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
