The bartender was on point, perfect service. There were regular customers coming in and everyone was very freindly. Very nice and relaxing dinner. 100% RECOMMEND the Steak Fajitas and the Cucumber Basil Margarita...

We love Mexican food but found this restaurant to be a disappointment. Chips and salsa were good but the meal was not. I had pork enchiladas with big pieces of tasteless pork and the refried beans were also tasteless and very soupy. The rice was terrible.

I was sold this meal as a quality steak that was very tender. It was somewhat tender, but fat usually is. If this is a 16oz steak, then nearly HALF of it is fat and grizzle. NO taste at all to the meat. $20 for that is theft. I will never eat there again if at all possible. The rest... More

Service was great, food was plentiful and delicious. The bar did NOT have Jose Quervo however... which I found odd. The tequilia they did have was fine nonetheless. Right next to Motel 6 and Super 8 MKE airport location.

Our group had 9 people, including 3 children. We ordered a variety of different entrees. Service was very good, and the food arrived in a timely manner and all at the same time. Everyone said their meals were excellent and the portions were large. The menu items reflect authentic meals that are not often found in Mexican restaurants. I highly... More

If the weather is nice, you need to sit outside on the patio. Nice music and a great, cozy feel. The wait staff was attentive and very gracious. Food was good and served quickly (as usuall). A+ all around experience.

Over the years we've gone to Jalapeno Loco many times, including back when they were on S. Packard Ave. We hadn't stopped by in awhile, so we stopped in this evening. We were there 5;30 (ish) the dinner rush had not really started yet. We were seated quickly, and our drink order was taken shortly there after. Drinks arrived quickly.... More

After a weekend of terrible service and food quality, we finally found a gem of a restaurant! The wait staff was phenomenally genuine and helpful. Service was quick, food was authentic and wonderful! I had the best tortilla soup in my life at this little place. I will definitely be back for more! Thank you!

I went in for a quick lunch. The service and food were fast. The food was a little bland for my tastes and seems overprocessed, but that's pretty average for Mexican Restaurants.

Sure, it may look like nothing to write home about, but inside you find a fun athmosphere, a huge fireplace, and a nice place to have a very casual meal. The margaritas are awesome, they concoct their own mix to give you some options to enjoy. The salsa is also awesome, try the green sauce for a little heat. Nice... More
