“Disappointing Food and Horrible Host Staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2008

I went to Jalapeno's for the first and last time on Saturday, September 13, 2008. I was quoted a 45 minute wait. After waiting for an hour and watching a table sit empty with dirty dishes, I asked to speak with the manager. He was unresponsive, and the hostess still had no idea when a table would be ready. She finally sat us after realizing that people who had come in the restaurant after those that had been waiting were seated first. The wait staff was friendly and attentive, but the food was mediocre. Overall, Jalapeno’s was a very disappointing experience.

“Best Meal we had in Gloucester”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2008

Outstanding food, great service, delicious margaritas, fun atmosphere. When the check came we realized it was not only the best meal we had during the trip--but the least expensive.

Gloucester - should be Gualadahara - this is the real deal Mexican spot - challenging the notion that the North Shore is only seafood.
