Been eating at the establishment for years. The food portions are very good. The margaritas are decent. It is not as busy as it used to be. The waiters are decent. Prices are perfect for Mexican food.

We went here because we had heard from several people that the margaritas were well priced and good. Unfortunately, we did not find this to be the case. Both a traditional margarita on the rocks and a frozen strawberry margarita tasted strongly of cheap alcohol (think Montezuma tequila) and were definitely made from one of the lower grade mixes which...

This is a fairly large restaurant located in The Alley. Good selection of Mexican food. Nice beer and good margaritas. The only thing is that we felt rushed even though the restaurant was very quiet. As soon as we finished our main courses the check was brought. No one asked whether we wanted desserts (we didn't) or more drinks (we... More

Even though this restaurant has been in Montgomery for over 15 years, I've not been to it lately because it's not close to my house. However, I visited one of my friends in that area and since it was one of her favorite, we went there for our girls night out. The chips and salsa was average but my taste... More

I was in Montgomery in the beginning of October for a wedding, and while my wife was off with the other bridesmaids, I was left to my own devices to find a place to eat. After walking down Commerce St., and making a brave walk down an alley, I found this place. The food was amazing, and the beer was... More

We've been all over the world and this place has the best queso dip we've ever tried. You need to get the special dip with the taco meat and the pico de gallo - to die for!! We love their salsa and fresh chips. They even have a special hot salsa you can request - boy does it have some... More

There is a problem somewhat though. There are so many variations, I find it hard to decide. Everything we have ordered has had just the right amount of seasonings. If you want it hot, as in most good restuarants, Jalapenos will gladly accomodate. You can make up your own combinations so don't be dismayed if your favorite is not on... More

While doing a historic tour of Montgomery we popped in here for a quick bite to eat for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at how reasonably priced and tasty the food was. Our favorite part was the outside alley seating area we were placed. We caught wonderful breezes while we had our margaritas and wonderful cuisine, you couldn't have ordered... More

I've eaten at many authentic Mexican restaurants, but this is the first one I really didn't like. The flavor was bland and the presentation was lacking.

My family and stopped here as a lunch stop on our drive down to the Florida gulf beaches. A bit off the beaten path from the interstate but we were looking for Mexican so we found Jalapenos through our GPS unit. We were glad we did. Bottomless chips and salsa (tasty by the way), very fast and friendly waitstaff and... More
