So glad we tried this Jalapeno Tree again. Under new management since the last time we ate there. They really go out of their way to make sure the customers are satisfied. Always crowded and we can see why. Food is delicious and large portions....More

I got a recommendation from the hotel where I was staying and they steered me right. Great chips and salsas and I really liked my shrimp tacos. Good service and very fairly priced. I would definitely return.
