My wife has eaten here before and today we stopped in for a late lunch. I LOVE Tex-Mex and have eaten it across the state of Texas..outside of Texas doesn't count and should never be attempted. I'd put this on the same level as Mercados in Tyler or El Phenix around Dallas....Tex-Mex comfort food. From the chips and 2 different... More

My wife and I had dinner here and the food and service was really good! The only complaint I have is the prices. But then I believe everyone is a little pricey in our area. But for a sit down meal with good service, I guess you can't beat it here in Athens. I give this place 4.5 out of... More

We live in a large city noted for its food. The beef fajitas at Jalapeno Tree were some of the best I have ever had - deliciously seasoned with made on the spot warm tortillas. Reasonably priced. Great margarita - not too strong/not too watery. Attentive and friendly service. Lively family atmosphere. Free soft ice cream for dessert!! If we... More

We had about 40 people in our group and reserved the large back room. The wait staff took excellent care of us. Even ordering from the menu our orders were prompt and correct. This is the second time we have done this and we will definitely be back.
