Food is ok, drinks are amazing. The staff is professional and the environment itself is relaxing. The only reason I say the food is ok, it arrived cold but was good. Anyone looking for Mexican food close to the airport, it's across the street; very close.

Cute authentic Mexican restaurant. Very friendly staff. They provide a green and red salsa with their complimentary chips. It took about 10 minutes to receive our food. Both meals were great. We also got some little fruit flavored hard candies with our bill.

Jalapeno Loco has become a go to Mexican restaurant for us over the past few years. They have a great scratch made Margarita, very good salas and chips (extra hot you can ask for) and food that's pretty good all for a reasonable price. Next time you're by the airport try this hidden little gem.

So delicious and Sergio served us drinks and ran his buns off! I had the chicken chimichanga and would order again. Everyone else's food that came out caught my eye also! Lady sitting next to us offered to let us taste her mole and it was awesome! We plan to order that the next time.
