We used to go to Jalapeno's because of the great fajitas. We would order the dinner plate for two, with beef, chicken and shrimp. Well it would be so much we would have to take some home to eat the next day. Well the salsa and cheese dip and chips were to die for. We went there at least 3... More

Probably the best fajitas I've ever had. So. Many. Choices. My fave was the Aloha Fajitas with chicken, bacon, pineapples, peppers, onions, and cheese!

We went on a Monday night and the place was full( a very positive indicator of good food). I asked a customer what was good and she replied everything. It turned out she was a local and frequently ate... More

The waitress was very good. Food was excellent. Very busy place even at 2 in the afternoon. Enjoyed the atmosphere. It looked like everyone was having a good time.

You guys are nuts if you don't try this place. No, it's not an upscale facility, bit the food quality is awesome. I travel the nation and I've never seen a place with such a verity of fajitas.

We always eat at Jalapeño's when hungry for Mexican food. The fajitas are the best in town. More than enough food for two. The wait staff is always friendly and they keep your drinks full.

Dropped in for lunch today. The restaurant was busy. I have eaten here and really enjoyed it...but today....waited over 35 minutes for two tacos. Had to ask for silverware and finally got a own to-go box for my friend whose food was cold also. Waitress was very unapologetic over the wait. The food was cold. Did not check back on... More

Great food, we stopped on the way home from Texas. We ordered fajitas and enchiladas. Also ordered white queso. Everything was great, good flavor. Not as fast as I would like but that's okay.
