This was my 3rd and probably final time there. It's just very convenient to the Hyatt ... in no way is this Mexican food ... save a few bucks and hit the Taco Bell. Yes big portions of not great food. My boyfriend used to rave about this place but even this last trip he didn't even eat a 1/4... More

Jalapeños is always a favorite stop for us on our way down to Florida! The people are very nice and food is excellent! Salsa is also top shelf! Highly recommended if in the area and like Mexican food! Margaritas are average but nothing an extra shot of tequila doesn't fix!

We eat here often. We love the staff, they have become like family to us. This is where we go for our family celebrations. The food is really good. The salsa is the best!

We arrived at 9:30 on a sat night and were surprised to see the place empty. They assured us that they were open though and served us. A few people came in after us so we didn't feel as weird. Ordered some queso and chips and some chicken and beef tortilla wraps to split, came with rice, Guac and sour... More

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. Now it is dirty and rundown. The service is terrible and the food is no better than the Taco Bell across the street.

I wouldn't call this authentic Mexican, more Tex-Mex. Chips and salsa great ... Great service. Food was decent for the price... Big portions. The food does weigh very heavy on you hours later though. I'd go back for another try.

What a TREAT!!! The staff was so gracious and inviting, and fun to "joke around with"!!! The food was not only delicious, but authentic!!! After driving for 8 hours in horrendous traffic, it was a terrific way to settle down and unwind before walking back to the hotel and watching a movie and doing it all again tomorrow!!! Thank you...

Nestled in a small shopping center, not a huge restaurant, but a great cozy atmosphere and good food, reasonably priced. Very good margaritas
