Although we did not eat dinner here, the margaritas were AMAZING and reasonably priced. The meals I saw served at other tables looked good. Would definately go there again and recommend it to others :)

Cute authentic Mexican restaurant. Very friendly staff. They provide a green and red salsa with their complimentary chips. It took about 10 minutes to receive our food. Both meals were great. We also got some little fruit flavored hard candies with our bill.More

Description
Jalapeño Loco is a family owned and run restaurant which opened in 1995. We have a passion for sharing regional Mexican dishes with our clientele. Our atmosphere is warm and welcoming, a great place to meet friends and family or for business while you enjoy a wonderful margarita. We are a full service restaurant and bar with the best selection of tequilas and Mexican beers conveniently located across from the airport. Come in and enjoy the flavors of Mexico!
