True, Mexican food may not be beautiful looking , but, oh did I have a delicious entree tonight at Jalapeno' s...Chicken Pay Azteca. It looked a little like lasagna with layers of mixed vegetables, cheese and tortillas.I chose black beans and guacamole as sides. Yummy!!

Have been a loyal customer here for years. The last few times that we have been here the service was not good at all. Obvious that they under staffed. Please, please get some help. Want to give you our business. Food is always great.

They offer a complete Mexican menu however their specials and entrees are a good combination on conventional Gloucester dining w/a Mexican twist. Very kid friendly.

We came here on a Saturday night as a family of four and were sat in the bar. We should have moved but we were starving. The bar was full of loud obnoxious drunk people at only 6:30pm. The waiter got one of our orders...More
