Really good food

It was across the parking lot from my hotel and had decent reviews, so I decided to give it a try. In a word, fantastic. My "small" margarita was large. The chips were fresh and warm. And my enchiladas were some of the best I've ever had. Plus the staff was very friendly and the atmosphere was... read more

This was our second time here, we came in to order to go. The restaurant is very nice-it has a seperate bar area. we sat there while we waited for our food. A lot of horseplay with the staff-but they were very polite and helpful with choosing things. The menu itself is very akward and confusing. Things like "choose 2... More

We were staying at the hotel next door. The food was horrible, neither of us finished our meals. Some of the adjectives my wife used; awful, horrible, gross, tasteless. Needless to say we won't ever go back even though the hotel is a regular stop for us.

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.
