Description: In 1996, Arnold Castellanos married the boss's daughter. "The boss" owned Sombrero, a Statesboro Mexican restaurant. Impressed with how hard Arnold worked, he gave the couple his blessing - and, as a wedding gift, helped his new son-in-law start his own restaurant in Savannah. Arnold loved the restaurant business almost as much as he did Magda, his bride. Fortunately, she was supportive of the long hours Arnold spent there, managing, hosting and even waving a sombrero at cars on busy Abercorn. Four successful years later, Arnold opened the second Jalapeno's, at 7405 Skidaway, and a year later, another in Sylvania, at 503 West Ogeechee Road.

Was a welcome site, having just finished taking pics at Wormsloe, and was on foot. The food was very good, Mexican eats, and good service!

I went to the one on Whitemarsh Island, the staff was not friendly when the Easter Bunny walk by the restaurant the staff went outside and left the restaurant and customer to take care of themselves. The food was poor no favor the bean was water down. The wateriest was busy do something else. Overall this place sucks.

From the 2 for 1 delicious margaritas to scrumptious entrees and fabulous service from Gabby this place is a 10. Margaritas...some of the best we have enjoyed. The food was authentic. Gabby was on the money attentive and very sweet and hospitable. I would come back here in a heart beat. ♡

Stumbled upon this charming Mexican restaurant while shopping in Savannah. Food and service was excellent at a busy lunch time. We always enjoy the tortilla chips and salsa before the meal and theirs was really exceptional, homemade chunky salsa great! Everything on the menu is priced very well. Try it, y'all will like it.

This is a great restaurant. Has the Molecajete and this is the best. The service was great and the food great. Never had the Molecajete and it is terrific. It can be ordered either mild, medium or hot.
