Called to pick up food for me and my coworkers at the Harrisonburg location, the owner delivered it. Which was great! Prices were great, we got a 30 percent discount being that we work in healthcare (with all of this virus stuff going on). Food was fantastic, and I would go back in a heartbeat!

This place is awesome! Whether you are looking for a quick drink, or to spend the afternoon with some friend, I can't encourage people enough to go to this place. They have some really inventive options on the menu, as well as great and efficient service.

Ordered takeout from here for a proceeds night and got the chicken quesadilla and nachos machos . The nachos were good and were made with beef, but could have used more cheese and additional toppings. The quesadilla was also good, but a little small and the side of rice and beans were pretty bland. Overall the prices were pretty fair ... read more

Meh at best. But it was also parents weekend and my other reservations got messed up. Who serves white rice with Mexican food?  Pinto beans with cheddar, not refried beans were lukewarm. They did have a bar though with good selections like Modelo.

To start off they gave me frees chips and salsa which was really good and fresh. I got the Taco Salad and all the ingredients were freshly made and the guacamole and pico de gallo on top was so good. My server/waiter was really nice and he was also really fast to past and hard working. I highly recommend this place and will definitel ... read more

Fair Mexican Food
My wife and I love fish tacos. We both ordered them and were very disappointed. Maybe it is because we were ordering Mexican food in Virginia.

Good good with Keto choices and strong drinks
First of all, this is not an authentic Mexican restaurant. It’s more like Ameri-Mexican, which is still great food in my opinion. Along with the Mexican fare they offer burgers and sandwiches. The drinks from the bar were good and strong. Husband said chips were...More ... read more

I went to Jalapeno for a family outing, I was very excited when I went and was surprised in both good and bad ways. The staff greeted us about three minutes after we came in the door.

Nice little place. Prices are right. Fish taco's are really good. The beans and rice are presented differently than I would expect. I did not try them, but my company did and said they were good. We would go back if we are in the area. The draft beer was good.

We were just driving through and found this place off the side of the highway. Jennifer our server was really nice and attentive. The cooks were even nice. The food was great and atmosphere was terrific! Will definitely be back when in the Area.

Though their food and service are really good, their margaritas are not. I have always loved coming here to eat & enjoy a good marg, but since their marg prices have gone down, the quality has, as well. They are entirely margarita mix, probably because they are made in big batches. I hope they improve, but for now I will avoid orderi ... read more

A recent menu change leaves you with very few options.  With no salads, no enchiladas, and just a single burrito option, you might find yourself checking other people's menus like I did to see if your menu is missing a page.  The food was fine, but the lack of options is hard to look past.   Next time we want Mexican, we'll be going ... read more

I thought this place is overpriced for non authentic Mexican food. This place is not bad to have a few drinks but I could get double the food for half the price at the other local Mexican restaurants. If you like tex mex then you will probably enjoy this place! Service and staff are good.

The jalapeño burger was one of the best burgers I have had in a long time. My favorite margarita was the mango and you must do the tequila flight with a cold Modelo. Great experience and the staff was very friendly. I will definitely come back again.

Food and service we're very good. The mango margarita was super sweet though. Not much of a bite of alcohol to it. Pro tip for locals and non college people: go when JMU is on break. Waaaaaay less crowded.
