Jalapeno Inferno at Market Street

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.

My husband and I went to Jalapeno Inferno at the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel. I ordered a Premium Combo, shrimp enchilada and chile relleno. Both were delicious, just the right amount of spice and very flavorful. My husband had the carne asada fajitas and he felt, while good, they lacked a little spice. We shared the churros for dessert and we both agreed we'd go back for the churros for breakfast if they were open!

We went in for a quick dinner - highly recommend getting a reservation. We started with the frozen berry sangria and it is amazing!

We shared the nachos and when they say they are monster they are monster. Could have used a little more sour cream and guac since there are so many chips.

There’s so much great stuff to try I’d go with a group next time. We thought this was more upscale and actually it’s pretty casual. All good just not the atmosphere we were thinking it was.

Food and service were good, but unfortunately cannot give it five stars, because the women’s bathroom was absolutely filthy from toilets to floors to walls. Totally inexcusable especially during these times!!!

Loved this restaurant! So much so that we went TWICE on our short stay in the area. Service both times was great, as was the food. Everything came out timely and super hot. Lots of options on the menu and enjoyed the relaxed and casual atmosphere. It's not your "quiet, romantic date night" location, but the noise level was still low enough for conversation. I would definitely recommend and wish they had one in Texas!

We had a great experience at Jalapeno Inferno. The green chili corn chowder is a "must try" and the staff, including Eddie our server, were very attentive and personable. The free tamale for first-timers was an added bonus. We will definitely go back to explore the rest of the menu.

Great meal! Our first time eating at Jalapeño Inferno. Loved that our server gave us a “first timer” tamale as a starter! We also ordered the queso to go with the chips and salsa that was provided. We had the Chorizo Street Tacos (prepare for some heat), a “Super” Bowl with shredded chicken, and the Chorizo & Potato Enchiladas — would recommend/have all 3 again!

Birthday celebration. My son was visiting from Rochester, MN to join the celebration. Our server, Ashton, was AMAZING. The food was superb. Even got a special ‘sparkler’ dessert. Top notch experience, and we will continue to go to the DC Ranch location as we always feel appreciated as customers., not to mention the consistently great food! Thanks!

The ambiance was great for our group of 10 and we were seated promptly with our reservation time. The only drawback that we all noticed was that our waiter was extremely slow. He wouldn't come back very frequently to ask for refills or in the beginning take our order. We were in no rush, but it just kept drawing out from the time we ordered to the time we got our check and paid the bill.

The balcony is not a place to seat people. It is dead. Looks like the space is a complete after thought. No music in the place and the lights that are strung over the beams look like an after thought. We live in the area and this is off our list. It’s too bad as it could be great with just a little effort. Our waitress was great.

A girl who brought our food commented “it’s my pleasure!” She said this to us twice after we said thank you. I loved her.
Our server was cool! We had 5:30 reservations and got right in!

Service was very good! Frozen Black Cherry Margarita was delicious. Had the fajitas for two. Portions were quite large, probably could have shared a single portion. Everything was delicious!! Only drawback, the waiter never asked if we wanted dessert and brought the check over before we could ask. So we didn't!!

The food was flavorless all around. I was very disappointed in our dinner and embarrassed that I brought guests. They must have been under staffed because our service was very slow. I also ordered a margarita on the rocks that was super sweet like it was made wrong. Over all it was such a bad dinner I won’t be back to try it again for a few months, in hopes they figure things out.
