The salsa was excellent. We also enjoyed the other dishes we tried. The margarita was good.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

The building is in a quasi-residental area and looks a little iffy. But once you get inside it is absolutely great.

The chips are light, freshly fried, and melt in your mouth. The salsa is tasty (not out of a jar), has a zing, but won't likely be too hot.

The dishes we had were uniformly well prepared, hot, well presented -- and they tasted great. We will be going back.

“I don't care much for most Mexican food, but...”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

...it seems that everyone around here does, so sometimes you just go where your compadres want to go. El Jalapeno has good service and the food I had was good, if you like Mexican. I don't care for spicy food, chilies, peppers, salsa, guacamole...well, you get my drift. So that sorta leaves me to the chicken quesadilla, "no vegetables, please," and they got it right! It's a little crowded, but I guess that's a sign of a good restaurant! If you like Mexican food and you're in Americus, GA, by all means give them a try.
