About Us

The Jalapeño Tree is a family owned full service restaurant with a passion for Crazy Good Mexican Food. We strive to create a family friendly environment with a focus on fresh food, quality ingredients and exemplary service. Celebrating over 20 years of business has allowed our Pepper Posse team to create unique food experiences using fresh, healthy ingredients in a made to order scratch kitchen. While fajitas remain a local favorite, items like our Summer Salmon Salad with fresh watermelon, oranges, pineapple, and salmon over a bed of greens provide refreshing options. We know rice and beans are a must for Mexican Food, but we like to change things up with offerings of squash/zucchini, tortilla soup, and Key West veggies as optional sides.

OMG!!! This place was wonderful. They bring everyone at the table their own salsa and guacamole dip. Their chili rellenos were to die for. I could eat at this place everyday.

Trip Advisor Guest

Best green sauce. Love their food & always make it a point to eat here when passing thru.

Google Review

Very tasty Mexican restaurant. I highly recommend the Jack Nicholson. The seasoning was fantastic. I especially liked that you receive a complimentary ice cream cone on the way out.

Yelp User

Unique experience! The decor is lively yet comforting and authentic without the kitsch creating a tasteful aura for our dining guests. Señores, señoras, and niños of all walks of life are treated like familia by the staff!
