My family and I had lunch here while on a trip to Arkansas. Our waitress was very nice and served us well. The food was ok but a little pricey. Portions were good. Free soft serve ice cream was a nice touch. This is a chain restaurant. There are not many restaurants to choose from in Carthage.

Traveling through town and decided to stop on a Saturday for lunch. The complimentary chips and salsa also came with a green dip....Awesome! The lunch was great, service great, and the price was normal for a Mexican joint. Be sure to save room for the sopapilla and that delicious butter sauce. The beer was cold too.

The food is not good, and the service wasn't either. We spent almost 2.5 hours here for dinner. We had a group of 5 that came because of the green sauce that a local told us about. It was not anything too exciting. Unfortunately for us, a large party had placed their order before we walked in. This understandably held... More

Being used to the tex-mex food along the border, I had occasion to try this chain. Some interesting points: The Fajita Butter is a very good addition to any meal. The enchiladas were average (as are most enchiladas), the fajita meat was very tender, and served with ample tortillas (as is not usually the case anywhere else). The margaritas were... More

Stopped by here on a 3 day motorcycle ride. Looking for some place good and this place shows up. I enjoyed the green sauce. The red sauce - basically ketchup with some peppers in it - and not much at that. I had the tamale and my wife had the flauta. The flauta and chalupa were good. The tamale was... More

This particular location has delivered a wide range of experiences when dining there from really good to absolute horrible. It seems to depend on the wait staff working at the time. Overall, I prefer the Henderson or Marshall locations.

Have a great eating experience for lunch at the Jalapeno Tree. My nieces and I went to check out the town where Bernie Tiede committed a murder. We love the movie "Bernie" and wanted to tour the town. This was a restaurant featured in the movie, so we HAD to eat there! It was very good! Great service, too!
