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

My family and I have been going to Jalapeños for years, we have never had a bad meal!, the food is amazing, we are all totally addicted to it and have to eat there several times a week! Their guacamole is made fresh daily as is their salsa, I have tried a lot of different items on the menu and... More

I love this place great value, great food, and great service. It's a trifecta! This place is always busy with locals and very popular with people passing thru.

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.

The food was very good and plenty of it, the service was a little slow but they were very busy the night we were there and the price were very good also.

Grab a card at the greeting table when you walk in so that they can initial on the back of the card and you can eventually get a free meal! (Each person in your party needs their own card) If you live in Enon, Rivers Bend or work at Amazon, this is a place where you can get a quick... More

I think the food here was good but nothing special. It seemed a little pricier than other Mexican restaurants in the area. The real downer for me was the poor condition of the restaurant and lack of cleanliness. The carpet looked old, worn, and dirty. The restrooms badly needed attention. The furniture, too, looked as though it could use an... More

What a great find a couple hundred feet from my hotel! The chips and salsa are amazing with just enough kick. They even give you a small carafe of salsa so you're not wanting more. I was on a veggie kick visiting, but their Veggie #1 and Veggie Quesadilla were spot on. The wait staff was extremely attentive, friendly and... More
