We stopped in for dinner on a Friday evening. Place was 1/3 full. Service was a little lacking including my wife getting someone else’s dish. But the food was absolutely wonderful. They also have a nice salsa bar. Would go again.

I love dining at Jalapeno Fresh Grill! Chef Enrique creates beautifully delicious plates! I love his use of fresh ingredients, especially the plates that come with his fresh fruit salsa! The servings are incredibly generous and usually I have leftovers for the next day's lunch!
