This is our go to restaurant when we want a good,inexpensive meal. No matter if there are 2 or 10 they can accommodate you and the food is always good. The chips, salsa and free queso dip are good too.

Jalepeno's Mexican Grill is not even mediocre - it is poor quality Tex-Mex and I'm not sure how it stays in business. The food is standard Tex-Mex but with congealed cheese and mushy enchiladas. It was very disappointing.

I ate here with my daughters. It is one of their favorite places to eat. They love going there with friends since they are "broke college students". They have all you can eat options and the margaritas are a great price. The chips and salsa...More

Seriously, the food here was equivilent to a Banquet frozen dinner. I had a cheese enchilada, tamale, soft taco, beans and rice and it was all flavorless and unappealing. The tamale was so small and totally lost in the mound of canned chili con carne...More

The food here is just so-so but they have appear to have a very loyal fan base amongst the locals. I hear the waiters and greeters calling people by name as they walk in the front door so they must be repeat diners!

I have to admit that I had the greatest fajitas at this restaurant. They were sizzling and steaming and tasted delicious. Generous portions of food

Tasty mexican food if you are looking for a quick meal or to go order. Nothing fancy hear but good food for the price. They have reasonably priced beer on tap.

This place is probably one of the best Mexican Joints in the Collin County area! The place that sucks is Jalapeno Tree, some of the reviews here are obviously confused. I have been eating at this place at least monthly since 97... and the Staff...More
