The biggest problem that Jalepeno Tree has is inconsistency. Poor service, lukewarm food and quasi frozen margaritas. The place really needs some quality control.

We had five grown ups and my one year old nephew. Service was good. Food was good. No complaints. Every adult had something different off of the menu. Chips, hot sauce and green sauce were all good as well. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing.

The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. The waitress was great and the food, today, was excellent! I had fajita's... The chicken and steak were equally good! The air conditioner was on the blink, but I eat there about once a week and this is the first time the air was on the blink! I love to eat here!!!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

We met the family for a birthday party on a Saturday night. My brother-in-law called ahead to reserve tables but when we arrived we had to wait for an hour to be seated. The waitress was wonderful. The chips and salsa was great. The food was okay. The entry way where we were waiting was hot and we were right... More

Since the restaurant chain couldn't spell Jalapeno correctly (it has a tilde on the N), I wasn't sure they could cook Mexican food, but I was wrong. This restaurant has very good food, good service, and good drinks. The Jalapeno Tree in Henderson is also a very good restaurant and a member of this small group of this restaurants.

We had to wait about an hour to be seated. We were celebrating a birthday!!! They were able to accommodate us with our 18 person group. There were items on my ticket by mistake but was taken care of. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only complaint I have is that I asked for two green sauces and did... More

Our family of four ate here and we all though our meals were just okay. We live near Dallas and eat Tex Mex quite a bit. We would not go back to this restaurant, but it was not bad. Our waiter was friendly, polite, and efficient. The chips were very good (thin, light, and crisp). They gave everyone at the... More

The sopapias are good and the green salsa dip and chips are great. The food is not bad but not the best I have had. Have not had the best luck with the wait staff.
