I have been to this restaurant several times in the past year. Each time the food and service have been exceptional! I have been in the Dallas area for 1.5 years and tried many mexican restaurants. This one is by far the most authentic and best tasting food!! Also, if you like live music and a cozy setting, this is also the place for you! Prices are very reasonable for what you get too. I highly recommend this place! Try it! You won't regret it!

I think I may need to give Los Jalapenos another chance because my first experience there was not great. I love a few of the restaurants at that intersection and I think I may have been a little bitter that we went there over a couple of my favorites, but the fajitas were surprisingly good.

My husband and I went to this restaurant for our Saturday date night. We were charged extra for corn tortillas for our fajitas without being told until we questioned the check. The grilled shrimp that came with the combo fajitas were very bland and did not have any flavor.
We were talking and having drinks at the table after we were finished eating and both the waitstaff and the manager asked us to move to the bar even though there were lots of other tables open. In my years of working in the restaurant business, I have never been so offended.
We will not be going back.

Tucked away in a modest stripmall at the corner of Josey and Rosemeade (between a Big Lots and an AutoZone) Los Jalapenos may be THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN CARROLLTON. The friendly staff and fantastic, authentic Mexican dishes are not to be missed! And superior live entertainment and prices that'll have you shaking your head in disbelief.
FOOD & PRICE: Mouth watering Carnitas (tender chunks of fried pork served with pico de gallo) is only $6.99. All chicken and beef dishes are most excellent. Yummy ""Pechuga Rellena"" (chicken breast stuffed with ham, cheese, pico de gallo covered with Francis? signature special sauce) for only $8.99 would be $10-$13 elsewhere. The ""Texas Parillada For Three"" (a fantastic combination of beef & chicken fajitas, carnitas, sausage and shrimp.) would actually feed 4 or 5 for only $29.99. And if you like spicy seafood, try the Tilapia or ""Camarones a la Diabla"" (7 jumbo shrimp bathed in very spicy chipotle sauce) or ""Braduardo's Plate"", a new item that will have your mouth singing (shrimp wrapped in jalapeno and bacon, grilled & smothered in Francis Sauce).
ENTERTAINMENT: Wonderful live music every week on the new performance stage. Thursdays, you're treated to the beautiful voice and romantic Spanish love songs of ""Martin Santalucia & His Romantic Guitar"". Nearly every Friday, Top-5 World Finalist Domingo ""The Best Voice of Elvis"" packs them in. You seriously won't believe your ears! Complete with a light show that'll have you wondering if you're actually in Vegas. (You may hear ""Elvis Tribute"" and hesitate - but this guy is the best you're ever gonna find. He puts on quite a show, for a very enthusiastic, loyal following. ) And for the cha-cha crowd, Saturdays you get the ""Unforgettable Ballads of Miguel Rivera"" and Salsa dancing.
DRINKS: Too many tequilas to list. Mexican & domestic beer. Or ask for one of the tasty drinks made with fresh fruit!
ATMOSPHERE: Simple and Elegant. A perfect fit.
