The people there were wonderful other jobs, and the food is absolutely delicious. This is one of our favorites here in Pontiac. We would definitely highly suggest trying the food here.

The nacho always been my favorite. Best thing to get on the menu. I don't get nothing else from Jalapeños except that, it's sooooooo good. The absolute best! You won't be disappointed in the nacho I tell you!

This place had great reviews so decided to check it out. It's a cute little place with great service. Food was very good and we will be back. My husband had barbaoca and chirozo tacos and I had shredded chicken tostada and a pastor taco - all great! Their guacamole was very good too.

Was looking for a good Mexican place in the Pontiac/Auburn Hills area. The outside of the place looks very nice and is clean. Was not impressed with the food.

I have never sat down to eat at Jalapeños but I do enjoy there tacos and nachos. The restaurant is nice. Service can be a little slow some days but the tacos are worth the trip. So call in advance don't mean your food will be ready when you get there but it helps

Welcoming environment, fast service and really busy (on a weekday mid-afternoon). Free-flowing chips, great guacamole - and a terrific range of dishes. Really a great place

Love the choices of salsas here. Great to mix up your own concoction too. The Mexican tacos are a must and don't forget the grilled jalapeño on the side. Simple outside eating in the summer. Friendly staff.

This place is good the chimichanga was the best i have ever had. The sope was a pleasant surprise i have not had once since Sante Fe's was open across town. This is where you can get authentic Mexican food. We will definitely be back. Good value too. I would prefer to have given it 4.5 service was a little... More

Eat here with my family all the time. Anything you order is delicious. This is my favorite place to stop for Mexican food. Can't beat the prices and the people who work here are very attentive and super nice!

Delicious food, well priced, authentic and friendly environment. My wife and I have been eating at Jalepenos now for many years. We have never had a bad experience or meal. We always look forward to eating at Jalepenos restaurant either in Pontiac, MI or at the newer location in Clarkston, MI.
