The food is not good, and the service wasn't either. We spent almost 2.5 hours here for dinner. We had a group of 5 that came because of the green sauce that a local told us about. It was not anything too exciting. Unfortunately for us, a large party had placed their order before we walked in. This understandably held... More

Being used to the tex-mex food along the border, I had occasion to try this chain. Some interesting points: The Fajita Butter is a very good addition to any meal. The enchiladas were average (as are most enchiladas), the fajita meat was very tender, and served with ample tortillas (as is not usually the case anywhere else). The margaritas were... More

Stopped by here on a 3 day motorcycle ride. Looking for some place good and this place shows up. I enjoyed the green sauce. The red sauce - basically ketchup with some peppers in it - and not much at that. I had the tamale and my wife had the flauta. The flauta and chalupa were good. The tamale was... More

This particular location has delivered a wide range of experiences when dining there from really good to absolute horrible. It seems to depend on the wait staff working at the time. Overall, I prefer the Henderson or Marshall locations.

Have a great eating experience for lunch at the Jalapeno Tree. My nieces and I went to check out the town where Bernie Tiede committed a murder. We love the movie "Bernie" and wanted to tour the town. This was a restaurant featured in the movie, so we HAD to eat there! It was very good! Great service, too!

Me and my husband love this restaurant, they have hands down the best fajitas anywhere. We have even been to other Jalapeño trees in other towns and we're not impressed. The steak taste like a ribeye and love the butter sauce to dip in before rolling up in a soft tortilla. Drinks at bar are good too. And can't pass... More

The food here was good but the tables are a bit close together. Not the cleanest place I've every been either. I'd go again, but it's not on my favorites list.

Very busy place but lots of seating. Lunch fajitas are good, cooked perfectly and comes with tortillas, rice, beans, guacamole and sour cream. The combo plates are good, I had green chili chicken enchilada and beef burrito for $8.99. They were delicious. Chips are crisp, but didn't like the salsa. Service was good, prices are moderate. They offer free ice... More

We called in an order to pickup and the service was very good. The fajita quesadillas were excellent. There's a special take-out counter with a door near the rear.
