“Delicious food, great service, low prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We've visited here enough times since they opened that our "Purchase 7 meals and get the 8th free" card is almost full.

We vacation reguarly in Mexico and El Jalapeno is authentic. Perfect salsa and large no-salt totopos (corn chips), plenty of seafood and vegetarian options, good Mexican beer and excellent service make this one of our favorite restaurants.

“Fast, excellent service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

A group of my friends and I dined here on a sunday and we were all impressed by the service. Our food was very good and the waiters stopped by frequently to refresh our drinks. This was my first visit there and I wonder why I didn't try it sooner.

“Good food - fast service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

This is a locally owned Mexican restaurant that has become pretty popular with locals. Their food is good - love the Margharitas, inexpensive, and fast service.
