This is not even Carne Asada. It is cut like Carne but I'm not convinced that the meat wasn't rancid. I have never in my 45 years of life sent a plate of food back but it was so bad it was completely not edible. The waitress was very nice and polite about it and got me something else. The... More

Thank you for your feedback and patience. We're sorry that our take an carne asada didn't match your expectations. We hope you'll reconsider and give us another chance; we'll have plenty of margaritas on hand, if that's what it will take! If you're ever not completely happy, you can count on us to make it right.

Lovely setting with outdoor patio when weather permits, Jalapenos serves a full Mexican food menu with chips and salsa as a starter. Lunch specials, daily specials, and a full-service bar. When our entire family is at the ranch for a week in the summer, we reserve the side room to accommodate all 8 adults and 13 grandkids.

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.
