    Jalepenos is an excellent Mexican restaurant. The fresh made salsa and tortilla chips are superb. Wide selection of authentic dishes and a large drink menu. Fajitas with chicken and shrimp were delicious. Service is always excellent.

    My friends and I were looking for a good, authentic Mexican spot in between Rhode Island and Boston (a meet in the middle type of ordeal). We hit the nail on the jackpot finding Jalenpenos. From being asked where we wanted to sit (no restaurant EVER does that) to our waitress refilling our chips & salsa without even asking to the delicious meal all 6 of us had, there truly isn't anything negative I can say about this place. I will highly reccommend it to anyone in the future and am already looking forward to my next vist. Thank you Jalepenos!!

    Been here b4. First was good, last was ok so we decided to give it another try. Arrived to an empty restaurant. Waitress may have been handling the entire dining rm; took forever to get drinks and when our apps arrived the guac was good but our queso fundido was a congealed mess w cheese and oil separated. Tried to dish it up and it was one giant ball of oily cheese. I know what queso is supposed to be and the menu even said "...creamy cheese..." Waitress said, "...you must of misunderstood the description." Didn't offer to take it back or even give us a new one. Entrees were ok. Mango salmon was dry and the mango salsa very mushy. The margaritas were just ok. All in all, a disappointment. This should be a n'hood gem given it's location.

    4 of us went to Jalapeno's Saturday night and sat in the bar area for the first time, usually we sit in the restaurant part. The waitress was one of the best we've ever had anywhere, friendly, chatty, knowledgeable, the margarita's were excellent, as was the food. We've been there many times, and will continue to do so, it was all around outstanding.

    Been here twice now and both times food was excellent (all meats were cooked perfectly even a nice thick NY Sirloin was medium and flavorful!) but the staff is a little off. They're not overly thrilled to be there, when you ask a question they don't really answer it, example: "whats the difference between these two sauces? Ones red and the other is green." Yeah, the menu says that but??? And no, the red is not hotter, the green is. If that's not an issue for you then go - food is authentic and very good. Also - Bar side is very loud for dining.

    I know we could have asked to be moved but thought it was strange a couple in there mid 50s were seated next to a group of 10 that had 6 children under 8...restaurant not crowded... food always good though. Obviously did not bother us enough to move but since restaurant wasn't even at 50% capacity seemed strange

    We have eaten at Jalapenos many times and have always had a great experience. The service we had Friday night waspoorl. Our server did not write down our orders and had to come back several times to confirm, in which we had to correct her. We had ordered Tostadas de Jaiba but received Tinga Tostadas. When I was halfway though my delicious Chipolet margarita our server asked if I wanted another drink. I said yes, and she took my margarita away with it still being 1/2 full. By the time I realized what she did it was gone. My wife had wanted to take the rest of her shrimp tacos home, our server she said would box it up but instead threw it out. Unacceptable service!!!!

    What a great find! Was in Boston for one night and was looking for a resto that was open on Christmas Eve. We found Jalapeno's online and decided to give it a go. Although it was a moderate drive from our hotel (20 min~) it was well worth it. The servings are big and the food is delicious! I recommend the fish tacos and the tamales - super yummy. Plus, the waitstaff was the best, so friendly and accommodating, if we are ever in the area again we will revisit!

    We've been going to J's Grill for a few years. OMG, something has changed! What used to be a quirky little date-night restaurant that served nicely spiced almost authentic Mex food, now it seems to be more of a kid-friendly tex mex place with really BLAND food. I had the grilled swordfish special with toasted coconut topping. Sounds yummy, right... NOT! It was so overcooked it was leathery. Topping was weird: sweet creamy/cheesy... with soft shredded coconut, like the kind used for baking. No fresh shredded toasted coconut??? My dinner friends had more "traditional" tex mex fare: enchiladas, fajitas, etc. All BLAND, not spicy at all and barely lukewarm. The waiter only served us one drink each, though we all wanted another. Where was he??

    I set-up reservations through Open Table for 8 of us. When I arrived and told them I had reservations for 8 they looked at me like I had two heads. An hour later I had to chase down a waitress to find what was happening with our table. Bamm! There it is a again the two headed stare. We had to wait another 20 minutes to be seated. By now we were a couple of pitchers of margaritas in (very cool pitchers for the margaritas) too bad they were not very good. I had the fajitas and thought they were good. Everyone else complained about the meal. Mostly, that is was salty. I'd go for a beer and chips but thats it!

    The food is excellent; a wide variety of choices so there was something for everyone in our group of 8. While I personally enjoy the Dos Esquis on draft; I did not some took advantage of the homemade sangria and the excellent margaruitas they prepare. No complaints from our group, which is a good batting average.

    We love this restaurant and have been there many times. The food is superb as is the prompt and friendly service. On New Year's Eve, eight of us shared a carafe of Sangria and Margaritas and they were delicious. I love the ambiance in the main dining area. On New Year's Eve, we were placed in the bar area which I didn't care for very much. The lights were bright, it was louder and wasn't cozy like the main dining area. However, we were probably placed there because the main dining area was full; we just booked the table the night before New Year's. Next time I would request to be seated in the main dining area. But, we all had a great time and the food, drinks and service were excellent.

    Food was pretty decent - although it felt like the food was prepared way ahead of time (maybe day or two). Would like to see it prepared the day of (for the dishes that require more cooking time). Service was very very good - may go back again - as there are no authentic Mexican joints nearby ( I consider Acapulco's on Route 1 as 'meets the lowest common denominator' type of food.
