It's kinda hidden but well worth looking for. This is a place with the best fajita's , meat is very tender and juicy. They also serve you homemade pico-de- galo on request. Chips and chili de queso is very good , try not to eat to many chips , but it's too good. Been going here for the last 9... More

The food here is excellent. There are several of these restaurants in surrounding cities and each one is different, even though the menu is practically the same. You can't be the price either. The space is in an older strip mall, so it is a little dingy/dirty looking. It does get a little loud since tables are so close together.... More

Pretty typical Mexican food. Food is what you expect. We all got something a little different and we all were pleased for the most part. My chicken breast was a little small and thin but taste was ok. Overall didn't love it but didn't hate it either

Jalapenos has the best fajitas and salsa. Great nachos and refried beans. We go there regularly and order pick up regularly as well. Very inexpensive.

They use poor quality ingredients to make their food. The cheese is runny and the enchaladas don't have much taste. No spices at all.

The food was tasty, fast and nice proportions. The large margarita was HUGE - consumers be aware! (Still very good!) My server was Jennifer - she rocked! Very friendly and attentive. Whoever made the review of "not recommended" is high. This place was outstanding!

My mom loves Jalapeños in Farmersville, so she took me to this location in McKinney for dinner. It was pretty bad. The queso that comes with the chips is not even cheese. It is watery and tastes more like cheese flavored soup. Salsa wasn't bad though. It didn't take long to get our food which was nice. However, it was... More

The dishes that I have eaten have been great and the margaritas are reasonably priced. Great place to dine often.

This is our go to restaurant when we want a good,inexpensive meal. No matter if there are 2 or 10 they can accommodate you and the food is always good. The chips, salsa and free queso dip are good too.
