I love ordering fresh guacamole and seeing it made to my specifications. And it is just awesome that the vegetarian fajita is actually full of vegetables (not just onions, bell peppers and tomatoes, either!) My husband loves the chicken fajita too, and we can't believe that even without a coupon, it is so inexpensive. Our new favorite restaurant in Smithfield!

very average, service and food. pre-mixed margaritas are green and are mostly kool aid. they do have an outside area with live music in good weather. That's pretty nice.

The wife and I go out every Thursday night and we usually end up at Jalapenos. This restaurant is one of the favorites of the "locals", however no matter how busy it gets, and they do get busy, the booths still allow for conversation without having to shout. Décor is interesting, but the restrooms are functional at best. Service is... More

I had two tamales and a side order of rice.It was very dull and bland.No flavor at all even in the mole on the tamales.

This is a nice little cantina with authentic Tex-Mex dishes. The staff is very nice, the service is efficient, the menu has extensive choices and the food itself is tasty. Chicken fajitas, tacos carne asada and the grande chicken quesadilla are good selections - large portions of savory dishes served sizzling hot. The "special' menu items and platters are better...

I tried this place twice, the first was take out and the second was dine in. Being a vegetarian Mexican food is normally a good option for a good variety, which was the case here. However, both times the food was excessively greasy. I have been to may Mexican restaurants and I cannot recall any of them being greasy. Where... More
