Finding Jalapeños was one of my happiest moments during our 2 week CR tour. Jalapeños Taco Grill gives the word "fresh" a whole new meaning. After chatting with Mike the owner for a while, it is very clear his passion is not in owning a business, but in feeding people well. He cares about every single thing that comes from behind the counter whether it is a single shot of espresso or an entire meal. My only regret is Jalapeños is in Costa Rica and I live in Virginia!

We enjoyed numerous yummy frappuccinos, smoothies and iced coffees during our week long stay in Playa Negra. The breakfast was so fresh and delicious. I wish I had a bowl of the homemade granola and fresh fruit right now!

We visited this shop twice during our stay in Playa Negra. Great service, as well as excellent espresso drinks. Very reasonably priced too!

We loved this place and went a number of times. The burritos, tacos and smoothies are all fresh and delicious. They make the tortillas there and they are fantastic! The owner was there and he seemed personable to us. The only thing we thought was unusual was that all prices are in US dollars. We are in Costa Rica and expect to see colones - but I guess this place gets mostly Americans? If you are in the area - this place is great.

Been a few times and liked the food OK but the owner is pretty grouchy and makes you feel like an imposition. Can't imagine treating customers that way! The women that work there are very nice though. Plus he likes to play strange movies super loud and it makes for unpleasant dining experience. I'd probably return if the service from the owner was better but I won't go back again.
