After just moving to Skidaway Island we were hungry for authentic Mexican food. Jalapeños was perfect and delivered a great meal to both of us. Both the fish tacos and chicken fajitas were spot on with flavor and came out hot! The service was excellent and food was great. We highly recommend.

I am Spanish and know food. Jalapeños is as Mexican as you're going to get. The food was delicious and authentic. The service was great and the wait wasn't long at all, except for Friday's. They are good, so it's expected to have a line of people wanting to get in Friday night. Their drinks are yummy and their guacamole... More

We were sightseeing this morning and had our dog with us so we ordered chicken fajitas to go. Service was quick and when we got back to our campsite the food was really good. While waiting for our order I noticed that they had a nice bar and the place looked nice and clean

The salsa is spicy but good. We only had a margarita and cheese dip. Both were go and nice party food. Next time I would like to try the food we were meeting people and had already eaten.

The menu has anything that you can think of. We (two couples) each ordered something different and I can say we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and piping hot and our server couldn't do enough for us. We will stop every time we are going by this exit. We loved it !

Description
In 1996, Arnold Castellanos married the boss's daughter. "The boss" owned Sombrero, a Statesboro Mexican restaurant. Impressed with how hard Arnold worked, he gave the couple his blessing - and, as a wedding gift, helped his new son-in-law start his own restaurant in Savannah. Arnold loved the restaurant business almost as much as he did Magda, his bride. Fortunately, she was supportive of the long hours Arnold spent there, managing, hosting and even waving a sombrero at cars on busy Abercorn. Four successful years later, Arnold opened the second Jalapeno's, at 7405 Skidaway, and a year later, another in Sylvania, at 503 West Ogeechee Road.
