Been coming to El Jalapeno since they opened many years ago. Great food and excellent service. Mexican Beer is reasonably priced, even better during happy hour. Their Chicken Chipotle is nice & spicy plus enough for another meal the next day. El Jalapeno coupons are in various papers and flyers to save money too.

This restaurant has very good authentic Mexican food and the prices are reasonable in the scheme of things, and you get lots of chips and salsa and the salsa is very, very good. Service has always been impeccable.

We have been coming here for years and the food and service is always fantastic! You can tell how good the food is going to be by the chips and salsa, and theirs is great.

We had lunch here yesterday with friends and they were as happy as we always are when going here. The food is great and the service outstanding. It's been that way every time we go there. So we'll be going back again!

I love eating here. The people are friendly, the service is usually fast, food tastes good. My only complaint is I order something special about my food and it's never right! But they fix it fast.

Nice place. Friendly staff. Good fast food. I had lunch burrito. A little big. Other than that, no issues. Quite affordable.

I treated my parents to a late lunch here. I got the enchiladas and sangria. The sangria was very good and the enchiladas were also good. The salsa was delicious. I would love to try this place again when I am visiting my family.

The service is beyond attentive, we have been to several restaurants and the service at this place tops them all by far. Also, VERY GOOD prices and the portions are large. Would highly recommend, have never been... More

Took for ever to get drinks. The guy would say one thing then bring something else. Got our drinks and asked if we were ready then left and didn't see him again.
