This isn't a fancy Mexican restaurant. Just friendly people offering some unusual entrées like gumbo or enchilada torte along with the usual burritos etc. Thursday is busy because it is 99¢ margarita night.

We've been going to Senor Jalopeno's a couple times per month for several years. It's not top of the line, but the food is good for a reasonable price and Thursday is $.99 margarita's. I usually get the shredded pork burrito smothered in half and half green chili. It never disappoints.

The best thing about Senor Jalapeno is their fried chicken. I don't know why they can't make Mexican food as good as they can fried chicken? The prices here were raised about a year ago and I haven't been in since. I didn't mind eating there so much when it was cheaper because I didn't feel bad about paying for... More

First Time @ Senor Jalapeno's, after living here for almost 8 years. I honestly do not understand all the rave reviews.... it was GROSS. The chips were stale (as seems to be the consensus from everyone else rating Senor's), the HOT green chili tasted like some sort of chinese egg drop soup, beans were okay but dry, rice was a...

We have eaten here many times over the past few years. The meals are always very good, not fancy. The service and staff are great. Their Marguerites are great and not expensive

They have the typical Mexican food. Nothing too exotic, but good staples. They have specials for lunch daily. They are closed on Mondays, so don't go then. They are a good, hole-the-wall type of place located off of Main Street. They can serve big groups easily and they are fast with their service. This local family run business is where... More

This is a cute hole-in-the-wall restaurant. We went with some friends who have been going there for years. We went on Thursday (99 cent margs), so it was hopping. The food was good - i had a beef/bean chimi and my husband had the steak taco salad. Not fancy, but fun. We will definitely be returning.

I lived here many, many years ago and really enjoyed this place then. We moved back recently and tried it once again. The food was really unremarkable. I didn't try their margs but I should def. go back just for that. I'll try them again in hopes that I was just there on an off night but thus far, they... More

I eat her often. Food is inexpensive and good. Best item on the menu .... fajitas! They are one of the more expensive items but worth it. The .99 margaritas are good and they definitely don't skimp on the tequila!
