The food was so bland! For somewhere named Jalapeños I expected a little more heat, or some sort of flavor. Everything was swimming in oil and there were no spices to be found.

Service is OK but the food can be just awful, at times. Never could find anything on the menu that tasted decent. Tried 3 times. Three strikes and you're out. Probably went 2 times more than I should have

My husband and I often go here for Mexican food. They are friendly, not overly expensive, have wonderful tasting salsa, and their spinach enchalada is to die for.

Everything about this dining experience was average. Nothing was overwhelmingly great. I had fajitas and would say I left full but they were very plain with not as much flavor as I would have liked. I had flan for dessert and it was average as well. Service was great though! The wait staff was very friendly and attentive!

Last Saturday we both ordered a Rib Eye steak smothered in onions, mushrooms and cheese. My wife ordered hers medium and I ordered mine medium rare.

Amazing authentic Mexican food! Just go. You won't be disappointed. So much food that was so good it's hard to list. Deep fried ice cream, shrimp cocktail, shrimp enchiladas, Carne Asada, margaritas, and churros. Best part of it all? The service was fast, friendly and just wonderful. Enjoy!
