Boring. Not tasty. Never gone back. Rarely would I rather eat my own cooking. Even the waiter only recommended the guacamole.

This was a very nice place to have lunch. They have combination platters for a great price! And you get salsa and chips free! I was shocked at the quality of the food for the price. Worth a visit.

We go to Jalapeno's at least once a week, sometimes I go more since I can walk their from the house. It always looks packed, and parking is always full, but I've never had to wait more than 15-20 minutes for a table (we usually...More

We were all craving mexican food and boy did this place deliver! I especially enjoyed the Mocajete. It was delicious. The Margheritas are great as well. This is definately a family friendly restaurant at which you are sure to enjoy a good time!

Great drinks and friendly service give this three stars. The food however would rank much lower. The fajitas weren't fajita meat and slice - chopped - into tiny pieces. The quesadilla isn't grilled, its just a folded over tortilla with cheese and a chunk of...More

The food was great, andI am glad to have chosen this place, and the great food, the night of St. Patrick's Day. Very difficult, or...boisterous customers, and the staff never seemed phased. The food was great, and suggested hot sauce was spicy while still flavorful....More

The atmosphere of this place was Latin and different. I go to a lot of Mexican places, and this one was cool. The service was slow and disappointing. My meal was messed up and had to be fixed. The food was great though. I would...More

Description
In 1996, Arnold Castellanos married the boss's daughter. "The boss" owned Sombrero, a Statesboro Mexican restaurant. Impressed with how hard Arnold worked, he gave the couple his blessing - and, as a wedding gift, helped his new son-in-law start his own restaurant in Savannah. Arnold loved the restaurant business almost as much as he did Magda, his bride. Fortunately, she was supportive of the long hours Arnold spent there, managing, hosting and even waving a sombrero at cars on busy Abercorn. Four successful years later, Arnold opened the second Jalapeno's, at 7405 Skidaway, and a year later, another in Sylvania, at 503 West Ogeechee Road.
