Service here is not the greatest; seemed like it was an imposition to want to eat here. Food was just okay; nothing special.

I've been going to El Jalapeno since the day it opened. The food and service has gone down in some people's opinion since the opening because they got more lenient and changed the food, but for me it's just as fantastic. I have served here...More
