I have been a customer of this excellent restaurant for many years but had never tried their happy hour. They offer $5 tapas in their bar every night and have rather a large selection. Every one I tried was absolutely delicious. Any of their dishes with a cabrales sauce are outstanding. If you're vegetarian, the Portobello champignon is wonderful. But I think you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The only downside is that there always seem to be people waiting for a table. I only wish they could expand the bar so that they could seat more people for their happy hour. Long live the non-chain restaurants!

The Happy Hour is the best. The amount of options they offer is without peer. I love when a bar/restaurant offers something along the lines of $1.00 off drinks and food!! Really?!?! Who cares!

Jalapeno's delivers the good with I believe over 40 items to choose from for $5 for HH it is hard to beat. The staff is super nice and very helpful if you are in need of a suggestion. Decor inside is well themed for the culture of the restaurant.

Most people say this is hidden although I tend to believe they just haven't bothered to look. Home Depot and Outback steakhouse are in the same shopping center and Target is across the street so not sure how that is hiding.

As for food you can't go wrong with the guac or any of the shrimp options. The steak and chorizo are also great. I have heard the ceviche is great although I haven't tried it since that isn't my thing.

First of all Jalapeno's is in the old mall next to the new westfield mall. Tough competition. That being said, excellent selection of Mexican and Cuban dishes. We had the Jalapeno Rellenos for an appetizer and it was great. Lightly batter (how I like it) and very crispy.

For the entrée, I had the cubed pork and it was great.

I was there for lunch and the menu was more limited then the dinner menu

Overall, if you like traditional non-taqueria style Mexican food this place is for you

Wait staff is simply OUTSTANDING; menu and quality of food is absolutely SUPERIOR! The location is in a small strip Mall and is undistinguished in appearance from the outside. Once you are inside, it is as if you have been transported to the Andalusia region of Spain.I am a long time resident of Annapolis and can state unequivocally that Jalapeno's is the absolute best that Annapolis has to offer.

This is definitely not the place for an intimate diner. The place is so noisy you can bearly have a conversation with the person you are dining with. Food is ok, but wouldn't rush back.
