Want to give our local taco place 5 stars, but, for God sakes... how can they mix up phone in orders EVERY TIME? for TWO years. Always something wrong: “no cheese or sour cream on ANY dish please” means “sour cream on two, and cheese one a third”. “Please our guac in the side” means “our double guac in top and spread it out”. Things can be a bit slow, but the food, chips, and home made salsa are top notch. Chipotle chicken burrito special is the bomb. I just WISH they could get a simple phone order (repeated 3x) right for once... in our lives...

Such a great place!My sister just move to South Lake and we decided, stupidly, to venture into Heavenly Village for lunch the day after New Year's day thinking we would find parking. No dice on that.So we headed back to my sister's and found this place. Some dishes are better than others, but it provides the straight forward west coast burrito and some more confusing, yet still delicious, dish like hard shelled tacos. However, the carnitas were totally off the mark. Carnitas should be shredded and fried and yummy. The plate I got was firm, chopped up morsels. It tasted ok, don't get me wrong, but it didn't qualify as carnitas based on my experiences elsewhere and resulting home cooking experiences.

Decent food but be prepared to wait for your food (not all that fast) & check to make sure what you ordered is what you got. 9 times out of 10 I am given the wrong items. This morning I ordered an "h" steak burrito no pico & a large side of beans & rice. What I received-2 chorizo burritos & 2 sides of rice. Just be sure to check before you leave the restaurant.

Horrible food. All our dishes were drowning in the same red enchilada sauce. A lot of just strange, nasty tastes...The floors were dirty, food all over place. Unbussed tables. Salsa's water downed and extremely over salted. Paper plates, plastic cutlery. The place not crowded on a Sunday at 5 pm.

Amazing authentic food!!! The breakfast burritos are some of the best I’ve ever had!! The free chips and salsas are really delicious too! If you’re looking for a place to eat in South Lake Tahoe that’s pretty cheap and close to the lake, swing into Jalepenos!!! It is absolutely delectable!!!!

I ordered of of their *new item menu* I got the Chipotle chicken bowl. I was pleasantly surprised by the dish. Its pretty much a salad bowl. The beans and chicken were great. I would like to go back when I'm in the area and try their buche or tamales to seal the deal.

Real decent food, typical pricing. Very convenient stop for quick casual meal if heading to/ back from Tahoe Basin area, but can get very busy, with a wait time of up to 15 minutes.

We stopped here during 4th of July weekend. Dont miss out on this hidden gem! And definitely dont skip their churro! They are closed for indoor dining but they have picnic tables out back as well as a couple smaller tables indoors. Decent portions. Lots of flavor! Friendly staff.

More expensive than most taqueria’s, but at the same time not that flavorful or delicious. Taco’s are mediocre at best. Not worth the 30 minute wait. On the plus side the Jaimaica was refreshing.

I usually never leave reviews but this was the most disappointing meal i have ever eaten. Watered down salsa, dry chips that had sat beneath a heat lamp about 3 days too long, and plenty of bone chips in the al pastor. Whoever gave this place a good rating must eat dog food on a normal basis.

Tahoe is becoming crazy with tourists. I get that, but when you can't get in for breakfast during the week, it can be frustrating.We knew of Jalapenos, but we did not know that they served breakfast.Well, they do! Not only were they the best breakfast burritos we have had, but at $6.50 each, probably the best bargain at SLT!!!

Overall: While it may resemble a "hole in the wall", this taqueria is a great option for those looking for local Mexican cuisine. The good: The service here was great - we rolled in needing a large catering order for 50 tacos, without calling ahead, and they treated us like any other customer. It took 25 minutes or so, but that was expected, and we got to enjoy the free chips and salsa while we waited. The tacos came in convenient catering bins and were warm and ready to eat. Their churros, which were relatively cheap, were incredible! Hot and fresh!The not-so-good: The tacos were not as flavorful as I would've liked, and there was hardly a difference between some of them. They are also bare-bones, you don't get anything outside of the meat and some cilantro. And the guacamole, while great, was on the smaller side.Food/drink: 8/10Atmosphere: 8/10Service: 8/10

If you’re coming from LA or the Southern California area, prepare to be disappointed as this restaurant does not compare. The soft shell tacos are dry and bland. The salsa is extremely watery and lacks flavor. If you want something decent, I suggest you order the enchiladas.

Their breakfast burritos are excellent!!! Great portion, good price, and made fast. We tried 3 different kinds (one ham, one sausage, one bacon) and loved every one. Ham was my favorite, but they were truly all delicious. We’ll be back.
