Our friends who live in the area suggested we try Jalapenos. They had been there before and liked it. We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday and surprisingly there was no wait. Our server was friendly and courteous and he seemed to be new but there were no problems. I had the Veggie Fajitas. There were very good and I... More

The food was really good and the margarita deals were even better. I think it's Thursday nights they have $4 frozen or regular margaritas which were too good. ;-)

Stopped here for lunch two days ago for the first time in several years and for the first time under the current ownership. It was a pleasant experience and a fun lunch with excellent service. Our waiter Carlos was as good as it gets even though he was covering several tables.

I had the Rita's taco plate. Very tasty. Guacamole was no better than I make at home. Service was not that great. Got food and had to wait for someone to bring utensils. Refills were few and far between. Bottom line is good food, subpar service.

Then the cook came out to talk to them ...another ten minutos. We could not pay our Bill because she never came to... More

We ordered take-out, and shouldn't have. When I arrived at the restaurant, I was greeted with a sign on the door telling me that cars will be towed from the office building behind the restaurant, despite the giant Jalapeños sign directing people to park there. I walked in and crowded between the benches for waiting customers and the hostess stand.... More
