Jalapeños is by-far the freshest and most flavorful food in the area. The breakfast burritos we ate were amazing - everything from scratch and super tasty! Even the tortillas were hand made and the hot sauce home made. Personally I don’t mind waiting a few...extra minutes for food that tastes this delicious. Mike, the owner, also spear fishes and serves his fresh catch to his customers. Jalapeños is the best place you will find in the area to have quality food. I’m still dreaming of my burritos!More

I was SO excited to got a burrito from here. I waited 40 minutes for a veggie burrito to go. Got to my place: no guacamole, no beans, the filling was strangely sweet tasting. The cheese was all bunched up in one place, and the...tortilla seemed undercooked. For a place with such high reviews, I would think that their attention to detail would be better. Save your money and go to the Green Papaya in Tamarindo. Their green hot sauce is sweet, not to my liking. PS: They’re not wearing masks inside when they make your food!! Just a note for the germ-phobic.More

There smoked fish burrito was probably the best thing I ate in a 5 week trip to CR. I’d go out if my way to get one again. Smoothies were good also

I usual stop here for breakfast, food is good and reasonably priced. For 10 bucks you get a giant burrito, perfect for after a morning surf. Mike the owner is a nice guy.

Stopped by while driving through with my husband. The food was fresh and was clear they used good ingredients! We enjoyed 2 burritos that were HUGE + 2 drinks for $22 USD. Highly recommend!
