This was my first visit to Jalepeno's and we will absolutely be back!
The menu provides a wonderful (nearly overwhelming) variety of cuban, spanish, and mexican cuisine - you could stick just to the tapas and have a lovely meal. We enjoyed 3 tapas to start (chorizo - which was outstanding with a nice spice; stuffed jalapeno's - which were a hit that we all enjoyed, and the ceviche), along with the guacamole and chips.
Our mains included two seafood dishes (scallops and the special, which was a halibut) and two meat dishes (I had the ropa vieja). My ropa vieja was out of this world - the plantains were delicious, and the helping was incredibly generous - I could have split it - and it was topped with a spicy chili pepper that I chopped up and sprinkled into the dish to give it some kick.
We enjoyed yummy cocktails (margaritas) and good beer, followed by a nice Rioja from the wine list (which has a nice range and variety).
Really wonderful atmosphere inside, and we visited on a Friday when there was a guitarist strumming Spanish tunes. I am so glad we finally discovered this locale and am very much looking forward to future visits!
(Also - my recommendation if you are dining at peak times is to make a reservation, it is a very busy spot!)
