We love the family atmosphere Jalapenos offers as well as the awesome food. Camarones Calientes is probably my favorite dish which pairs perfectly with a side roasted fresh jalapeno to add some heat and a scratch margarita to top it off. Speaking of scratch margaritas, do yourself a favor and get yourself one next time you're there. Well worth the extra few bucks to go scratch. Also if you're not in the mood for Mexican give their burger a try. I think they have the best burgers in Eagle River. My personal favorite is the mushroom bacon cheeseburger with fresh roasted jalapenos added for a little spice and I get black beans instead of fries. The staff is great and everyone really seems to enjoy that they do there. We've been going there for years and you don't see very much turnover in the staff which means they're being treated well and enjoy what they do which is awesome because that translates in a great experience for us customers.

Prices are very reasonable for both food and drink. Be sure to check the back of your local grocery store receipts for 2 for 1 type specials which makes eating at Jalapenos even more affordable.

I have been here many of times. The absolute best is the Chile Relano with ground beef. It is to die for. The wife always gets the Jalapeno Burito and says it the best she ever had. Prices are very reasonable and the staff is always courteous. Gilbert makes a great margarita and always treats each and every customer like they were family!!! Hope to see you there and this is one of my families favorite restaurants.

We've been enjoying Jalapenos since the day they opened their doors. The staff is great, from the greeter, to the chip and salsa carriers, to the wait staff. The chips and salsa arrive almost as soon as you sit down and our drink orders are always taken quickly and arrive quickly. The drinks are almost never below half-full before a new one arrives. Everything tastes fresh from the salsa to the main courses. I recommend the Tres Delicias Enchiladas, beef cheese and chicken with beans and rice for $14.95. They also have dishes with halibut and several veggie lovers plates. The decor is bright and although it can be noisy when it's busy, the food will make you forget about it. Jalapenos is MUCH better than the over hyped Mexican food places in Anchorage and well worth the short drive to Eagle River. They also have a second restaurant in Wasilla now.

Great for lunch or dinner. They give us so much food that our family usually ends up splitting meals.
