“Jalapenos, mexican with a kick!”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

A standard go-to restaurant, Jalapenos has never failed to please. Very large menu, good prices, excellent margaritas. Service is very good and the restaurant is lively and comfortable. Always a good choice.

“This was not what we expected, and not as good as it was before.”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

My wife and I traveled down to Sandpoint, Idaho, to do a little shopping and just get away. We had eaten at Jalepenos in Sandpoint before, and had a good experience. This time, we were disappointed. Both of our meals were very bland and not well presented. But we over looked it at the time, as we were having a nice time out. We ordered two margaritas to end the evening as it was just a short walk back to our hotel. We joked with each other that it was good we were walking. Well, we could have driven after several of these margaritas! If they even showed the bottle of tequila to the drink they served us I would be surprised. We are both seniors, and I sense that they just decided that us old folks wouldn't know the difference anyway. No, I did not confront them about the meal or the drink. I thought it about the next day, but we were in Idaho to have a positive experience so I just decided to save it until I got back home. If their attitude was as we suspected anyway, I don't think talking with them about it would have done much good. We went on to have great hotel stays at the Best Western Hotels in Sandpoint and Coeur d'Alene. We had great service and really positive experiences at these hotels and all the other restaurants at which we ate.
