We eat at Jalapenos fairly often, and it is always delicious. The waitresses are exceptionally friendly and do a great job! We highly recommend Jalapenos for group events and family meals :-)

I have reviewed Jalapeños before, and they are still one of the best Mexican restaurants outside of San Diego I have been to. When we want San Diego style Mexican food, this is our go to place. I have never been disappointed in there food or service. I love tacos and I think theirs are some of the best. If... More

We had a craving for Mexican food, and Jalepenos delivered. The decor is classic American-Mexican restaurant. The prices we more than reasonable and the margaritas were decent. The food was very good, exactly what we were expecting, and hit the spot for sure. The spinach enchiladas, however, were absolutely the star of the show and one of the highlights of... More

Excellent chips and salsa! My husband loved his Snapper Vera Cruz! I on the other hand did not enjoy my fish tacos! I will go again and try something else on the menu. Maybe the Enchiladas Suiza that seem to be rated hightly. The service was excellent. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere was typical. Parking can be difficult so... More

Menu has all the variety on Mexican Cuisine and nice selection of beers. Decided to go with something different and tried Fish Tacos. Not bad but I would stick with more traditional dishes. Husband had burger, nice pile of fries but extra charge for cheese. Over all good.

I am a big fan of Mexican food, and am pretty picky! Love their food. I could eat here at least once a week and never get tired of it. I usually get the fajita salad..... very tasty! The staff is always very nice and offer great service.

This is my son's favorite restaurant. They are very accommodating for large groups and families. I recommend the Mexican Chalupa and the huckleberry lemonade, my favorites.

When I have friends who like "typical" Mexican food, this is where I go. The food is fine, cooked and presented nicely, but nothing unusual. However, the service here is really excellent and their margueritas good.
