We come here fairly often, and usually have a good experience. Today, there were too many issues to ignore. First brought my wife the wrong drunk, things happen. Then he brought her the wrong food, we waited a couple of times on drink refills, then...More

The worst you anyone can ever order is from this place. It is an insult to mexican food. Wait staff isn't friendly either. They need to go back to school for customer service and food preparation. Horrible!! My family and I have never been back.

I have eaten here approximately four times and have enjoyed it every time. The food is good as well as the service and I especially like the free ice cream cone you get as you leave.

I’ve eaten here many many times over the years! It’s always good! El Dorado Jack Fajitas are my favorite.

Had a great authentic Mexican meal here at Jalapeño Tree. Loved the white salsa that came with the chips. Combo Fajitas were a little bit greasy but good. Margaritas were tasty.
