Jalapeno Tree has good Tex-Mex food, drinks, and service. The complimentary chips and salsa are tasty. You also get complimentary soft service ice cream after the meal. We like the lunch specials and order the chicken fajitas often.The atmosphere and decor fits the menu nicely.

We frequent this restaurant (after church service, mostly). It's very busy and crowded on Sundays, it's best to call ahead and get on the waiting list. This is the only one of two good Mexican restaurant in town. Even though they are busy and crowded, we still get service as if we were the only table there!! Our food exceptional... More

Healthy portions, quick service. One of the few Mexican food places that offer free chips/salsa and free sopapillas. My husband especially loves the free ice cream too!

The food was good, the portions large. My husband, the burrito expert, was pleased. I settled for cheese enchiladas with chili. They also were pleasing. We don't get good Tex Mex where we live so we tend to order the basics when we visit Texas. Boring maybe, but a good way to determine the quality of the restaurant. If they... More

Had 50 in our group. Good food & good service. Had reservations in advance. Should have been better prepared. Had to wait 30 mins.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend who lives nearby. Service was great, the waitress really tried to please and did. My friend wanted extra condiments, not problem. They didn't have the beer that I wanted, I like darker beers but I managed. I ended up with a margarita that was pretty good. The food was good and plentiful... More

Stopped in at Jalapeno Tree in Jacksonville Texas one hot afternoon for a much-needed cold beer. Restaurant was clean and tidy with very few people at that time. I ordered some beef fajita nachos which arrived fairly quickly and were delicious. Waitress brought me some special extra hot salsa which was also delicious. Good service and good food . Will...

I have been going to this restaurant for years. In the last few months that only has a service become horrible but the food is not what it used to be there. I would strongly urge of us you have a lot of time and patience to go to Rancho grande Mexican food in Jacksonville instead of here. We waited... More

The food is ok here. I luv the green sauce. I ordered a margarita which was awful. It was way too strong and I couldn't drink more than a few sips. Sopapillas are ok, but are not free like most other tex-mex restaurants.
