We visited on a Sunday evening and were pleasantly surprised by this place. Everything we ordered was fresh, the servings were huge, and the waiter had a super attitude! I wish I could get them to move to my home town! Must try the corn cakes, yummy! The menu is very extensive so get ready for a delicious meal!

Stopped in after a leisurely Labor Day drive in the convertible 😀 After reading the reviews we decided to try this Mexican place instead of La Salsas, and well let's just say Asti la Vista La Salsas and Hola Jalapeño Fresh Grill!! The combo Fajitas were awesome but the corn cake was the bomb!! We will definitely make the drive... More

I was really surprised at how different Jalapenos is from the 2 competitors nearby. The food is prepared to order, and very generous portions. Truly authentic Mexican food! Waiter is always super friendly.

We really like the food here. I often just get the steak taco. One is enough for me. It is loaded with steak. The mango salsa is awesome. We love the waiter. He is fun and pleasant. The only con is it could use s bit of redecorating but the food is great.

I was taken back. Friends raved about this Mexican establishment and I was skeptical. I don't really care for Mexican, but I go to the restaurants for the wife. We've been to many, what would make this place particularly different? We are welcomed by the most charismatic server, Ishmael, who I later learn is the owner's son. He is rolling... More
