Walking distance from the Fairfield Inn

Seated immediately and welcomed by a congenial staff. The lime margaritas on the rocks are excellent. Tortilla chips and salsa were fresh and tasty. The quesadilla fajita was also delicious. I'll go back when in the area.

We ate here since it's close to the motel where we stayed, just across the parking lot. We got the table side guac and it was fantastic. I had a tamale which was very good and my wife had one of the combo dinners. All in all everything was out of this world. we'll plan on eating here again.

Was very happy with the food, and the server was very nice. He kept drinks full,brought extra napkins and always had a smile on his face. The atmosphere is casual come as you are and the place is nicely decorated,even has several big TV's for the sports fans. Mom, Dad, and kiddos will all enjoy.

We visit Jalepenos every once in a while, and have never been disappointed. The food is reasonably priced, and very good. As with most Mexican restaurants, there are lots of items to choose from. The waiters are eager to serve you, and put on a great show when carrying several sizzling dishes on their arms. The restaurant is a bit... More

This restaurant is my staple! The food is fast, fresh and the staff is friendly and efficient. Everything I have tried has been outstanding. Better than Mexican food in Chicago!

I love this place when I travel through Peru. The Table side Guacamole is my favorite appetizer or side dish, one of the best I have had.

Food poisoned from here twice. Yes, shame on me for coming back. Six of us at a table. Five out of six had sour cream and turned violently ill. Not a hard problem to deduce.
