I have been eating at jalapeño’s for years. There were 7 of us. 5 out of 7 of us thought are meals were just mediocre. Very disappointed in the quality of food.

The staff seemed overwhelmed. They brought us chips, but took them 20 minutes to bring the salsa. 4 staff members told us they were so busy. Customers don’t need to hear that. We felt rushed and the place was dirty. The fish tacos, however, were excellent.

Food was some of the best Mexican fare I’ve ever had. Shrimp tacos, ceviche, chips and salsa and the spicy margarita is a must. Karen our amazing waitress had great suggestions and Brandon, the manager, checked in with us to make sure we were satisfied with all. We definitely were! The parking lot views are not the best.....but the flavors snd service make up for that. We will return to this one.

It was a Monday night and the service was very slow. Our waitress was super friendly but it took forever to get our food. It’s not the best Mexican food we have eaten in fact the taco 🌮 shell was per made from like the kind you get in a box at the supermarket. Poor quality taste on the food and slightly overpriced for everything.

It was so busy the wait for food was much longer than it should have been, they have been having a hard time finding help which is part of the problem. Would still recommend

First time at Jalapeno Inferno, had mixed feelings on trying this restaurant because of the mixed reviews! We were very happy overall. The steak fajitas could use a little more flavor though! The Churro Dessert was so Yummy I highly reccomend it!

We always like the food at Jalapeños but our margaritas, priced at $8.50 and up, were mostly ice (filled to the top of the glass), giving us about four swallows of margarita. The server didn’t ask if we wanted it frozen or on the rocks and my husband wanted salt which she didn’t add. Other than that, the good as good and the service was great.

The food and environment were great. Our server was very nice. The kitchen was very slow though, and they weren’t even that busy. We had to wait a long time for our food, and I felt badly for the server who kept apologizing and checking on things for us. Other than that, it was great. We would definitely return. Hopefully a little quicker service next time.

We specifically requested outsider dining. When we arrived at our reservation time, we were told that there was another group at the outside tables. They had indoor space available but the restaurant was very busy and we have friends that are nervous about COVID and will not eat inside. We ended up waiting more than a half hour to be seated outside. And then it took forever to get served. Also, do not order the fish tacos. The fish is heavily fried and overcooked.
