On a girls trip for the night and found their patio. Seated promptly and enjoyed drinks in the sunshine. Great, friendly staff . Looked for dinner places later and ended up inside here for dinner. Delicious food and a good price. They remembered us from...More

We wanted Mexican, so we thought this looked like a good place. Parking is only in lots and on the street in surrounding areas. We were seated right away and our server took the drink order quickly as well. The food came fairly quickly and...More

Ate here for dinner on our recent trip to Sandpoint and it was delicious! The tortilla chips and salsa were a hit (these come out as complimentary while you wait for your food). Service and staff were quick and friendly. No complaints from anyone in...More

Doesn't matter what your palate is hollering for - its good here. If you're used to Tex-Mex, California Mexican or street fare, you can find it here. Very efficient staff, good salsa!

Great menu, traditional favorites, combos or alacarte. This is the best sit-down Mexican Food Restaurant in Sandpoint I've found! Seating inside or street front patio, good Margaritas and good beer selection. Service seemed a little slow but the wait staff was all very friendly and...More

This is not even Carne Asada. It is cut like Carne but I'm not convinced that the meat wasn't rancid. I have never in my 45 years of life sent a plate of food back but it was so bad it was completely not edible....More

Thank you for your feedback and patience. We're sorry that our take an carne asada didn't match your expectations. We hope you'll reconsider and give us another chance; we'll have plenty of margaritas on hand, if that's what it will take! If you're ever not...More

Lovely setting with outdoor patio when weather permits, Jalapenos serves a full Mexican food menu with chips and salsa as a starter. Lunch specials, daily specials, and a full-service bar. When our entire family is at the ranch for a week in the summer, we...More
