We love Mexican food so try every new restaurant we can. This wasn't the very best we've ever had but definitely worthy of four stars.

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at Jalapeno Loco and it was absolutely incredible. We were looking for a spot that offered a private room, private bar, and wasn't ridiculously expensive. Jalapeno Loco met all our requirements plus SO much more. The private room was great: spacious, private bar, and private restrooms. There was no rental fee on... More

Sure, you could get fajitas or chimichangas here and they'd probably be good, but the real reason to come here are the regional specialties.There are tons of decent Mexican restaurants in the city, but this is the only place where I've found things like chiles en nogada, mole oaxaqueño, pipián verde, tostadas de tinga, etc. They're all on the middle...

For a road warrior, all I'm looking for is a nice non-fast foot place to eat dinner. So, I strolled over here across from the hotel and got much more than that!! Habanero Blue Cheese sauce with shrimp was fantastic as were the margaritas. Quiet, clean and friendly. And well priced.

We went to this restaurant on a Wednesday. We enjoyed the live music and the food was good but I thought over $12 for cheese enchiladas was expensive.

Seven of us went to Jalapeno Loco for a birthday dinner for my 12 year old Granddaughter. We were seated right away and our drink orders were taken. The wait staff was very helpful regarding menu items. Good and service was above average and all diners were happy. Dessert was a big hit with the younger guests.

The food at Jalapeño Loco was surprisingly good. We had the chunky guacamole which was more chopped than chunky. It was basically chopped avacado with some tomato and cilentro. We also ordered the Carnitas tacos which and the Tinga tostados, both of which were really good! The green salsa which was brought to the table was very tasty and slightly... More
