This is not an upscale place to impress your girlfriend or future in-laws but merely a good quality local Mexican Taqueria near Downtown. There is enough parking space for a dozen cars, it can be a problem if there is a huge number of take-out clients. You order your food at the counter as you enter Taqueria Jalapenos. We have...

The restaurant is definitely not a big chain, it appeared to be just a family owned place. The food was absolutely fabulous! It was made to order, fresh and hot!!! The serving sizes were plentiful and I would highly recommend stopping in :-)

Had Taco Salad. Chicken. Filling yes, but nothing special. Plastic silverware and cheap napkins. No chip served.
