My friend and I decided to dine here and chat after work. Our waitress was super nice and attentive! I ordered the nachos supreme minus guacamole. My friend border the steak taco plate and he loved it! My nachos weren't that great because the ground beef was salty so I couldn't finish it. The food was presented very well! My... More

Noticed, going into the restaurant, the bright colors, clean, and nice decor. Servers were fast and friendly. The menu is your "standard" Mexican restaurant items. Ordered the jalapeño bowl and a side of guacamole. The guacamole was fresh and made there (not table side on my visit either time - but nevertheless fresh). The bowl had fresh ingredients, tasted good.... More

Good service, staff very friendly, would have been 4 to 5 if food would have been better. Wife and I got same thing maybe just picked wrong, could be worth anouther try.

I've reviewed this Mexican restaurant three times over the last three years. Mostly average but the overall quality of food and service seems to be spiraling downwards. We took a chance and went in to have margaritas and an appetizer. Simple right? Only about three or four tables in use so surprised how long it took for a server to... More

Being as we are from Colorado and we have a ton of Mexican restaurants we thought we would try a Southern Mexican restaurant. We were really impressed, food was very tasty and the service was awesome. We were very pleased and would return if we ever go back to this area.

Had dinner tonight at Los Jalapeños. This is probably the third or fourth time I have eaten here. Dinner was good and one of the best places to eat mexican food in the Hilton Head/Bluffton area, but not the best place I have had mexican food. So far have not found an "outstanding place" for mexican food in this area.

I always drove past this place but because of the traffic on to HHI I thought I would stop in to see if the gym was opened and it looked closed so I came here for a veggie burrito and I fell in love with the place before I even sat down. It looks so authentic and themed it puts... More

Typical mexican food with the usual entree choices. Good but nothing outstanding. Service was good and apparently they have karaoke? Would have been fun to watch/listen.

Love to go here when visiting Hilton Head Island. It's also near Tanger Outlets so that's great if you're shopping and want something different.
