Jalapenos: Because who hates Mexican food?

Mexican Food

Jalapenos is a time-honored and fun neighborhood Mexican restaurant in northwest Indiana.

When it first opened about 10 years ago, Jalapenos gave a new meaning to Mexican fare. It offered soft cooked all day pork tacos with lean pork marinated with a tasty chili tomato sauce with just a hint of heat.

Now, the sides of rice and beans are well done with subtle Mexican flavors and the atmosphere is nothing but a party. Most summer nights an outdoor patio with tiki lights adds to the public atmosphere and giant, tangy but sweet margaritas add to any evening here.

As salsa connoisseurs, we at consider Jalapenos’ tasty salsa the best without big pieces of tomato, but a nice combination of flavors like onions, cilantro and onions, nothing short of a miracle. Jalapenos is at 200 US Hwy 41 in Schereville. For more information call 219-864-4444.
