Great food. The stacked Enchiladas were really tasty. Food was clean and prepared well. They even gave us a free tamale as first timers. Service was really helpful and speedy. Easy to make reservations. The decor was really well done. Nice to walk around the mall afterward too. We will definitely be back.

We had the fajitas for two. The chicken was nice and moist, but the steak was over cooked and the tortillas were dried out.

The food was really salty but the raspberry margarita was really good. Out of the 5 plates we purchased, no one liked their food. I would go back for the drinks and atmosphere.

Jalapeno Inferno quickly became one of our favorite restaurants when it opened in Park West. We have eaten here about a dozen times over the past year and every time the food and service has been fantastic. We are huge fans of all types of Mexican and Mexican influenced cuisine and Jalapeno Inferno is by far some of the best in town. Great cocktails too!

We’ve been here three times now, after tonight. The first two we only had a few drinks at the bar. Those times, the bartender was very nice and friendly. Last night was the first time we had been there for dinner and it was great! We had reservations at 7:15pm and had gotten there about a half hour early figuring we’d just go to the bar while we wait for our time to come. Upon walking in the front door we were greeted where we spoke of our reservation but we weren’t in a rush and knew we were quite early. Didn’t matter. The hostess found us a table and we were seated within two minutes of walking in. Wow. Then, we had a wonderful server named Josh who was at our table instantly along with another gentleman that had chips & salsa. Josh was one of the friendliest servers we’ve ever dealt with and was fun to talk with. Another man, (the manager or GM, I assume) checked on us just about every time he walked by as well. The entire staff was very friendly and attentive. FYI 7:15pm on a Saturday, they were quite busy. Yet they all still found time to make us feel welcomed. We will definitely be returning, quite possibly become regulars.

Katy our server was excellent. A bonus for first time visitors was a complimentary corn tamale for a starter appetizer - delicious and creative marketing in sampling. Food portions are LARGE well prepared and delicious. Not a romanic setting but fun and happy. Our cocktails were well prepared and worth the expense.

We really enjoyed the food, the prompt service, and the friendliness of all the staff and servers. Katy was awesome! Our only issue was that rice and beans were a bit salty. Otherwise, all good! We have been here before and this time we bought out of town guest. Looking forward to our next time there.

The customer favorite Fundito, tasted like something that was mass produced by Costco and put in the microwave and have some sauce thrown over it. Definitely nothing that’s me daily or even weekly. The street corn probably came from 5 gallon pails from Cisco, definitely not be fresh. The main entrée wasn’t too bad, but nothing to write home about. Don’t think I would go back to this place for the price.

Food was bland and cold when brought to our table. It looked like it had been sitting for a while. The prices are way to high for the quality of food we got. Waitress was slow and rude. It was very hot in the building and made it uncomfortable to sit and chat. I will not return to this establishment for lunch or dinner!

First time customer, the place had been recommended. Maybe I was there on an off day but I wasn't at all impressed with the food or drink. The salt on the margarita glass was dried hard on the glass and the lime was not fresh. The guac was on the verge of turning brown and had no flavor. Too bad. I was so looking forward to the visit.

We came here for dinner on a Sunday evening at 4:45pm and it was not busy at all. There were a lot of people working, just walking around giving us looks here and there, and going into the kitchen, and back out without ever coming to greet us or take our order. I had to stop the manager the third time he passed by our table without saying anything to us, and I had to ask him if someone could come by and take our order. The waitress never asked if we needed refills or offered to bring more chips/salsa when we were empty. It was overall a terrible service experience. The food was good. When we left, the hostess at the front watched us leave out the door and we said “thank you”, and she never said anything back to us. The service was just awful. We never complained or asked for anything besides a waiter to take or order. Basic customer service training needs to happen at this place of business, starting with the management.

Great Mexican food restaurant that has plate size of traditional Mexican food, Uniqueness of upscale fancy Mexican Food, but price range very reasonable and right in middle. We frequent the traditional chain in Phoenix, but this one will definitely be added to our frequently visited spots.

Appetizer Sampler Huge, great meal if you want to try a little of everything.

No complaints on the food. Everything was delish.
We had a little confusion concerning guac and sour cream but it was handled efficiently.
Our margaritas were outstanding, and for a weekend in the early evening, the place was not overwhelmed with patrons. We will be back!

Asada tacos were delish! Chips were excellent. Salsas were very bland. Even the "Inferno" although it did have nice heat at the end. I would only recommend the carne asada tacos as the burro was boring, and the shrimp taco as per my wife was "meh".

One of my favorite restaurants. For a holiday evening (Cinco de Mayo) the service was great, the beverages were delivered quickly, appetizer came out amazingly fast, and the food with perfect timing. Also notably the drinks and food were in no way discounted in quality from the normal. Worth a try by anyone who love Mexican food especially those who like a little spice.
