We stopped to eat before heading home. This little gem is nestled in a small strip mall across from WinCo. This is the real deal in Mexican Fare. I tried the Chili Relleno. Amazing. The service is good and music low and pleasant. Dont miss...More

The food here is excellent. There are several of these restaurants in surrounding cities and each one is different, even though the menu is practically the same. You can't be the price either. The space is in an older strip mall, so it is a...More

Jalapenos has the best fajitas and salsa. Great nachos and refried beans. We go there regularly and order pick up regularly as well. Very inexpensive.

They use poor quality ingredients to make their food. The cheese is runny and the enchaladas don't have much taste. No spices at all.

The food was tasty, fast and nice proportions. The large margarita was HUGE - consumers be aware! (Still very good!) My server was Jennifer - she rocked! Very friendly and attentive. Whoever made the review of "not recommended" is high. This place was outstanding!

The dishes that I have eaten have been great and the margaritas are reasonably priced. Great place to dine often.
