Yes, there is. El Jalapeño is good, solid food. Great pricing, good food, service was excellent. Food could be a bit spicier, but the thin tortilla chips and the spicy salsa were great.

El Jalapeno is under great, caring and truly hard working staff. They take care of you and you don't have to beg for a refill. They are quick and food is wonderful. I enjoy the atmosphere also. The prices are great.
