I went to Jalapeños Mexican restaurant on a Friday during lunch time with a friend. First off , the bathrooms are FILTHY. I know bathrooms are not our first thought when we go out to eat, but the bathrooms ruined my appetite. The waiter made us very uncomfortable and barely spoke a word to us. There were about 10 other... More

We really liked this place. The food for the price was excellent. I would for sure go here again if I was in the area.

I had not been here since they moved from their previous location. We went in a week night and the service was very prompt. We had fajitas for two and it was a generous portion,served sizzling hot. My daughter had the tacos. The chips and salsa and queso dip were very good. We enjoyed our meal and evening. We will... More

My husband and I have been going here for years. Everything is home made, and family run... Amazing group of people! Food is priced wonderfully, and you can always find a coupon in the entertainment book, or in the mentor ads.

Had dinner here with a friend and was impressed! Food was well worth the price! We left stuffed with food still on our plates! Went on a Friday night and was busy but not too loud and could enjoy a conversation without yelling

Jalapeno Loco moved to 7501 Mentor Avenue, just down the road to another shopping center. It changed names when it moved but has since changed back. I went dinner once, prices were average and food was just average. I really wanted to try their poblano white cheddar soup, however, when I asked to substitute it for the tortilla soup listed...

Unfortunately, this Mexican restaurant which prepared good Mexican food has closed its doors and gone out of business.

Dont know whats going on here, but this place is going downhill, fast. Went here twice in may, and both times had bad service. Food is average. With so many mexican restaurants around, you can skip this one, and choose another.

This restaurant \has the name Jalapeno Loco on the building and online. I got a $20 for $10 coupon on "LivingSocial.com" just to give it a try. Great food, great service and certainly someplace that I'd go to again. Just enough food for a very nice price. It took a while to get the check. But, the server was very... More

My family and I eat at jalepeno locos regularly and have never had a bad meal or poor service. The food is always tasty and bountiful. Definitely worth the try.
