The food was very good. I had the pork nachos and they were very good. Our waiter was super and took very good care of us.

Jalapeno Tree has good Tex-Mex food, drinks, and service. The complimentary chips and salsa are tasty. You also get complimentary soft service ice cream after the meal. We like the lunch specials and order the chicken fajitas often.The atmosphere and decor fits the menu nicely.More

Healthy portions, quick service. One of the few Mexican food places that offer free chips/salsa and free sopapillas. My husband especially loves the free ice cream too!

Stopped in at Jalapeno Tree in Jacksonville Texas one hot afternoon for a much-needed cold beer. Restaurant was clean and tidy with very few people at that time. I ordered some beef fajita nachos which arrived fairly quickly and were delicious. Waitress brought me some...More
