The enchilada sauce tasted more like a gravey than an enchilada sauce. More spices would help with the flavor also.

Overall, this is an ok restaurant. The food is good (but not overly exciting). The service was good (but not overly attentive). The prices were high for what we got, I felt, but again, this is a local business and I wanted to support it. The ingredients were fresh and I think locally sourced. But there was just something missing.... More

Came here because heard lots of gf options. Apparently most of their menu is gf. Enchiladas were good. The beef in the fajitas was tender. The star of the show was the drinks. We had Big Mama margaritas. Not for amateur drinkers.

Jalapenos is a local chain of Mexican restaurants, I think this is third one and it is the newest. If you are looking for a decent lunch place near Barkley this is a pretty good place. The food is mild, but they are willing to make changes to the menu if you don't like something. The staff is friendly and... More

Overall this is a decent place for a quick and basic lunch in the Barkley district. The lunch specials are a decent value and the food is served quick but also fresh. The chips and salsa are provided upon seating and are top quality. The ice water is served without ice which is odd. The service is personable and servers... More

Jalapeno’s serves delicious, fresh salsa and fresh thin tortilla chips which is a great start to any Mexican meal. I ordered the Puerco Al Horno (pork shank) on the recommendation of our waitress. It was good but not great, a little too dry and lacking in flavor. My friend ordered the steak fajitas and they were excellent. I will be... More

The food is bland, not just once, but each and every time we have visited and the staff varies from to inexperienced to mediocre. Besides the giant watered-down cocktails, I'm not sure what the appeal here is.

Had their asado, it was yummy. Seasoned just right and tender to the bite. I think it's family owned; staff was friendly.
