We have gone here since we moved to smithfield 15yrs ago. It's a great Mexican restaurant tucked in smithfield. They do have a sister restaurant in Chesapeake Square, but we like this location best. Great wait staff, super friendly and authentic cuisine. We have never been disappointed with a meal.

I went to this restaurant for lunch and was pleased. Staff is very friendly and efficient. I had the chicken F. Burrito with rice. Hot and tasty and lots of it. Chicken was cooked perfectly. The staff stopped by and checked on me several times. Clean and good prices. The chips and salsa was very good at the beginning. I... More

This place has a lot of potential, with the patio for outside dining and good size restaurant area. just needs a little updating would be great. The food is as near authentic Mexican as youre going to get in Smithfield. We've seen a couple good bands play here as well.

I have tried Jalepenos 3x and each time the experience has been worse and worse. The drinks are weak and expensive. The food is bland. The restaurant is dirty and dingy.

We were visiting Smithfield and this Mexican restaurant makes us feel like we're back home. The Burrito Regional was pretty awesome and I might go as far as to say the best steak burrito I've had ever. The chips and dips are pretty much your run of the mill Spanish style, but none the less tasty. Bottom line I'd definitely... More

I love ordering fresh guacamole and seeing it made to my specifications. And it is just awesome that the vegetarian fajita is actually full of vegetables (not just onions, bell peppers and tomatoes, either!) My husband loves the chicken fajita too, and we can't believe that even without a coupon, it is so inexpensive. Our new favorite restaurant in Smithfield!

We have eaten here a few times and it is always consistently good. Service is efficient and everyone working there seems to have a good attitude. Everything we have ordered has been served hot and the portion size is good. I would like to see a little more of a homemade touch go into their margaritas, though. They are a... More
