So delicious and Sergio served us drinks and ran his buns off! I had the chicken chimichanga and would order again. Everyone else's food that came out caught my eye also! Lady sitting next to us offered to let us taste her mole and it was awesome! We plan to order that the next time.

We love Mexican food so try every new restaurant we can. This wasn't the very best we've ever had but definitely worthy of four stars.

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner at Jalapeno Loco and it was absolutely incredible. We were looking for a spot that offered a private room, private bar, and wasn't ridiculously expensive. Jalapeno Loco met all our requirements plus SO much more. The private room was great: spacious, private bar, and private restrooms. There was no rental fee on... More

Sure, you could get fajitas or chimichangas here and they'd probably be good, but the real reason to come here are the regional specialties.There are tons of decent Mexican restaurants in the city, but this is the only place where I've found things like chiles en nogada, mole oaxaqueño, pipián verde, tostadas de tinga, etc. They're all on the middle...

For a road warrior, all I'm looking for is a nice non-fast foot place to eat dinner. So, I strolled over here across from the hotel and got much more than that!! Habanero Blue Cheese sauce with shrimp was fantastic as were the margaritas. Quiet, clean and friendly. And well priced.

We went to this restaurant on a Wednesday. We enjoyed the live music and the food was good but I thought over $12 for cheese enchiladas was expensive.
