this was the most authentic Mexican food I've had since actually being in Mexico. The guacamole is to die for. The shrimp Vallarta is incredible. I give it 5stars!!!! The service goes above and beyond.

You can tell that Jalapenos Grill in Walpole, MA, is different from most of the local Mexican restaurants in the Boston suburbs: the food isn't overwhelmed by salt and the overall freshness of the Yucatan cuisine favors wholesome, full-bodied flavors over the drive-through, pre-made, junk food-style stale specialties of the day we're accustomed to.

What's more, the comfortable, large dining room with friendly service, pleasant terra cotta-colored walls and open kitchen lends an atmosphere makes Jalapeno's a pleasant place to eat some of the best, most authentic Mexican food in the area. In the warmer weather, they also have colorful outdoor dining, overlooking a typical, pleasant small New England downtown (although there needs to be some revitalization to this potentially magnificent center).

Jalapenos serve appetizers, soups, quesadillas, burritos, tacos, seafood, enchiladas, fajitas, and desserts like a chocolate Kahlua sombrero cake and churros -- sort of like a Mexican pretzel. The food can be ordered according to your threshold of spice preference, and the kitchen is quite amenable to your dietary needs. In other words, you're not limited to the text on the menu.

Jalapenos Grill is not inexpensive with entrees ranging from $9.00 to $21.00, but the meals are worth it, given the flair for fresh and creative dishes and ultimate high quality that's hard to find at local Mexican restaurants.

We've been told that the owner, Ricardo Dorronsoro, seems to be here most of the time He walks around the restaurant with a lot of pride and purpose -- that's good news for you as this approach translates well into some really great food! On my first visit at lunch, the salsa, fresh tacos and the carne asada taco was out-of-this-world -- served on a hot iron skillet) with onions and fresh homemade salsa. Served with Mexican rice and black beans. On a previous visit, the Mexican salmon tasted unlike any other Mexican dish I've had (in the best sense) -- a fillet topped with orange glaze and mango salsa. and served with Mexican rice and black beans.

Jalapenos Grill brings a true Mexican food presence to Walpole, as well as a real downtown restaurant -- much needed in a town that could have a great downtown but has let its former vibrancy slip into too many empty storefronts and a revolving door of uninteresting stores. Here's to Jalapeno's for not only serving some great Mexican food, but perhaps starting the beginning of a potential downtown renaissance by setting a good example of running a business with wide appeal, pride of ownership and a really great product in its wonderful Mexican cuisine.

I cannot count the number of times I've eaten at Jalapenos, I just know I keep going back! Excellent food, tasty drinks and I love the atmosphere. Great place to meet up with friends or grab and easy dinner with your spouse. My personal favorites are the Caesar salad with chicken (Mexican style) and the chicken quesidilla made with pulled chicken which has been cooked in chicken stock - delicious!

I went to this place on a fairly busy Friday night with my wife and 5-yr old son. My complaint about this place has to do with the way we were treated by the owner. Arrived before 6:45 and placed a food order at 6:50-6:55, we still had no food at 7:25. After asking the waitress where our food was, she came back to give us an excuse about the computers and by the way, "what did you order again?" Fine, I have been on the other side and know it happens. Now, you would have thought our food would have been out immediately. Instead, another 10-15 minutes went by and we were about to leave. 7:45 food comes, waitress apologizing profusely and offering a free dessert (which we do not want). I say I want to see a manager, she says she is an assistant manager - trying to avoid having the boss find out about the problem I imagine. I persist, she relents, yet nobody comes by the table. Finish the meal, pay the bill (nothing was taken off), TIPPED. Wife and son go to car. I ask hostess (who did nothing) for the owner. He comes out and immediately goes on the defensive, says "I got the order at 7:32," so he was aware there was a problem. He starts yelling at ME and walks away. At that time a young waiter comes over and says "that's the way he is, you're not going to get anywhere, I've seen this happen before."

Why would people support such a %#^$& by going here? I paid the bill, I wasn't looking for a freebie. I was upset that there was nobody in authority to apologize for the poor service, and no recognition of the misplaced order and interminable wait for burritos. But to be treated like that by an owner is unconscionable. I will never go back and encourage people I know to do the same.
