Small brightly painted building with a well worn inside in a area I wouldn't normally stop in but my Daughter had told me about this place and had brought me salsa a chips that were great. I read the reviews so I wasn't expecting friendly service and didn't get it. The food totally makes up for it and you are... More

Nothing fancy here, but great value for best Mexican food I've had. The carnitas dinner was superb. Order at the counter and grab a beer from the fridge. Sadly no margaritas due to cost of liquor license, but overall a great experience. Nachos were also great according to my wife. She usually leaves enough for me to fill up on.... More

Delicioso. Recomiendo el taco pastor y las carnitas. Good selection, authentic Mexican. Simple, but pleasant dining area and cooling air conditioning was a plus on a day with a 99 degree heat index.

This is not an upscale place to impress your girlfriend or future in-laws but merely a good quality local Mexican Taqueria near Downtown. There is enough parking space for a dozen cars, it can be a problem if there is a huge number of take-out clients. You order your food at the counter as you enter Taqueria Jalapenos. We have...
