About

A second location of the wildly popular JALAPENO INFERNO has opened to rave reviews on Market Street in DC Ranch, only a few miles east of the original. The same Award winning from scratch cuisine and the famous Margarita Madness menu are available. "Spicy Pina-Rita" or a Black Cherry Sangria anyone??
Street tacos are legendary--local made Chorizo or Mahi Mahi can even be rolled into lettuce wraps as a tortilla alternative.
A dramatic upstairs dining room gives the place a "big city" vibe and can be booked privately. A full wrap around patio with a "fire wall" is the place to be in the mild weather months.
Happy Hour is featured in the entire restaurant and has become one of the most talked about in North Scottsdale.

I love Mexican food and through the years have sampled many different restaurants. This by far is one of the best! I personally judge a Mexican restaurant by the quality of the chips and salsa. The quality of both here are incredibly fantastic! The chips are mixed with two different types, both different consistencies and flavors. The salsa is thick and full of veggies, i.e. (pepper, onion, tomato and cilantro chunks. It is not a watery soup served with cheap chips. The service is good but not overwhelming, you are never rushed. The shredded beef grande burrito is one of my favorites. Full of chunks of beef, you don't need a microscope to find the meat!

Eddie took care of us and was extremely personable and helpful in suggestions after we explained our preferences. Wish it wasn't an hour and a half away from us because it would become a staple for restaurants we visit.

While our waitress , Lisette, could not have been better, it was a first visit for 6 of us and somewhat
of a disappointment. The Happy Hour Margaritas were scarcely more than lemonade. Two of us had
the Sampler plate. The tamale was big but almost nothing inside it. The outside was tasty, but too
much outside for the little to nothing inside. The quesadilla was just a little cheese inside a folded flour
tortilla--not much taste. Small burritos were pretty tasty but not much filling in anything
We didn't care for the chips or the salsa. Flour chips were heavy but tasty
but the corn chips bordered on stale and the salsa was much too thick. Wish I had a better review but
again Lisette, our waitress was amazing!

Probably the most bland Mexican food I have ever eaten. Nothing had any flavor. Our order was messed up, servers kept dropping things on the floor - it was just not a pleasant dining experience.

Great place to take the whole family. There's something everyone will love on the menu. It has a family friendly environment which is awesome for anyone with little ones. I usually don't notate the bathrooms, but with a separate changing table, it feels like they took the extra time to make it a comfortable space for everyone.

The waiter didn’t know the menu they brought us chips that where all broken crumbs guacamole had no flavor. I would never go back.
Should be out of business soon if they don’t get their act together hell aren’t enchiladas suppose to have some cheese on top ?

Just happened to be there during their five-year anniversary weekend where there were additional specials and live music, so that was a pleasant surprise and bonus. Atmosphere pleasant, staff super friendly and accommodating, food was good. Enjoyed the live music, musician played a nice variety of genres of music and was very enjoyable.

Blackberry chili margaritas are excellent. Chips were awesome!! Shrimp tacos were just ok - disappointing because server raved about them. Service was pretty good. Would go again to give it another try. They have a lot of dishes that use hatch green chilies just to warn you.

We've celebrated 2 anniversaries and 2 birthdays besides several other visits to Jalapeno Inferno at Market street and NEVER have been disappointed. The hatch chile menu is our favorite so we did enjoy it twice this season--wish it could have been more! We will be back before, but look forward to next years hatch season for sure. Awesome food--awesome margaritas!!

I always order the Chimichanga that ate Nogales. This location prepared it at half the size I normally receive. It looked more like a diet chimichanga. I will return to see if the portion is better next time.

This was my first dinner experience and thanks to their reservation system, we had a table for six waiting for us upon arrival (and it was busy on a Friday night). We were able to order happy hour priced drinks and apps at the table and our server was terrific in managing our small party. I have had good experiences at previous lunch meet ups and ordering take out as well.

Usually go with friends and always enjoy--this time just the two of us and decided to stay at the bar for dinner after enjoying an appetizer from the Hatch Chile Harvest menu (the Hatch Chile bean dip--awwwwesome!!) Strawberry Margaritas--excellent as always--Hatch Chile Relleno Burrito and "Bertas Fiery Bowl" from the same menu were also excellent. Great night!!

Food and service was great as always! It was very warm though in the restaurant. I'm not sure if they were having issues with the AC but hopefully they get that fixed. Our server and the manager were very friendly and the food came out hot and was delicious. It wasn't super loud or crowded so it was nice to be able to relax for lunch and enjoy a great meal with friends.

The food and service was great! But it was way too warm in the restaurant. The AC was kicking on, but just not cooling enough. I’ve been there many times and will continue to do so. I think everyone probably had AC problems today!!
