Had a bowl of tortilla soup. $9 for a shallow bowl of okay soup with a tablespoon of shredded chicken. Would have preferred to order something more substantial but everything was priced way too high. Very obviously hitting the tourists hard at this location.

We've tried this restaurant several times and found it consistently nice. "Taco Tuesdays" and Happy Hour offer good value as well. The service staff are very pleasant and helpful.

We have been here before but wanted to hit it again before posting a review. The 3 of us ordered and got one dinner that wasn't right. I asked the server and she said nope, that's the combo burrito. Yet, when the bill arrived, we...More

If you only ate at two Mexican restaurants in your life, Jalapeno's and Taco Bell. Taco Bell would be a 10 and Jalapeno's a 1. No flavor, just awful.
