More of the Same. Jalapeno's is an up-scale Taco Bell. The dishes are unimaginative and the cooking is so far north-of-the-border, I don't know why people go there for "Mexican Food". Try Mi Ranchito instead.
Tex Mex Neighborhood Eats, Great Weekday Specials.
M-F, they have some great buy one get one type specials. This place is very tex-mex, which I like. I don't think it pretends to be authentic Mexican anything. It does a great job of serving the neighborhood. The owner/manager is always there making sure things run smoothly.
The hostesses and waitresses are very nice. The Chips & Salsa are not an addt'l cost (ref. to previous review). I happen to like the salsa quite a bit!! I have had the enchiladas (very tasty). I wasn't over the moon about the tacos. Stick with the enchiladas or something like that.
If you are watching your weight, get the soupy beans instead of the refried. they are very good.
I don't know why people like this place..... The food is average at best and the lunch portions leave more than just a little to be desired. You can try and make up for the lack of food you were provided with the chips and salsa, but the "hot" salsa isn't very good. By the way. the chips and sauce cost extra. I've been here on a few occasions with coworkers who love the place, but I'll be very slow to ever go back. I can think of 5 places of the top of my head with better food and service.
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Locals flock for quesadillas and enchiladas at the restaurant that offers a family-oriented atmosphere.
EXCELLENT Mexican food! A must eat!!.
We are somewhat new to the area and have been searching for a mexican restaurant that measures up to one of our old favorites.
The non-smoking section really IS non-smoking. The chips and salsa were excellent. If you're picky like me, you don't like chunky salsa. Jalapeno's salsa is smooth with just a little texture, so you don't have to worry about digging around large vegetable pieces. Everyone was very pleased with their food, which arrived quickly and without error.
The prices are right ($5.95 for the burrito, but it was Wednesday, so only $4.95), the portions were good and all the chips and salsa you can eat.
The glasses are large enough that you won't be sweating bullets waiting for a refill every 5 minutes either. And speaking of refills, the service was great. Very friendly, prompt and attentive.
the best mexican food. everytime i visit KC i have to make sure i have time to eat here. it's the best mexican food place. the price is reasonable. except you have to pay for sourcream.
Best service in town. My favorites are fajitas, fajita salad and the #15. No matter what I order, the service is the best in town no matter how expensive the restaurant. I prefer the Stanley location on 151st St.
AWESOME. Best Mexican food and margaritas in the city, a must do!!
