Went to Jalapenas with family members and had a mediocre meal and aweful service. Place is very plain and nothing special. Menu brought to us was filthy and covered with salsa. Yuck. Waiter (Joe) had not a clue about the menu, drinks, or service. Made...More

We came for dinner, and this is a pretty basic Mexican restaurant, nothing fancy and your typical Mexican menu. I had a margarita and a 2 burrito plate. The drink was good, we had some chips and salsa, and the burritos were fine. Nothing great,...More

Fabulous service! Fabulous margarita’s! Fabulous food! Living like a local when visiting this awesome restaurant. Chips & salsa were great and so were the tacos. Look forward to coming back on our next trip.

I had some seen some bad reviews online but decided to give it a try anyway. The wait was short, the food was good, and the staff was friendly. Everything looked clean and the portions were a tad on the small side but I guess...More

Stopped here for lunch on the way to Wormsloe Plantation, Isle of Hope location. Glad we did, fast service, great tasting food, great pricing...a trifecta of goodness. Would definitely recommend it, nice atmosphere as well.

We love our Mexican food and this will be one of our stops when we come to see our daughter at SCAD. We both got enchiladas and they were very tasty. Our only complaint was that the frozen strawberry margarita was too strong to drink.

When you get in the mood for Mexican food you know you want hot food and cold drink. Here you get both, quickly and you'll feel satisfied. True they want to get you in and out, but if that's what you want, short waits if...More

Really enjoyed the fajitas complete with salad, beans and tortillas. Delicious. The smaller portion was perfect for me. A little noisy due to the music (too loud) and the large lunchtime crowd but the quality and taste of the food made it OK.

In 1996, Arnold Castellanos married the boss's daughter. "The boss" owned Sombrero, a Statesboro Mexican restaurant. Impressed with how hard Arnold worked, he gave the couple his blessing - and, as a wedding gift, helped his new son-in-law start his own restaurant in Savannah. Arnold loved the restaurant business almost as much as he did Magda, his bride. Fortunately, she was supportive of the long hours Arnold spent there, managing, hosting and even waving a sombrero at cars on busy Abercorn. Four successful years later, Arnold opened the second Jalapeno's, at 7405 Skidaway, and a year later, another in Sylvania, at 503 West Ogeechee Road.
