Jalepeño Inferno is a North Scottsdale neighborhood favorite for casual Mexican, Southwestern and Tex-Mex dining. You will find it bustling with activity day and night throughout the year with families and people of all ages. However, even though it gets busy, we have always managed to find a seat right away.
The menu features a large number of items, some traditional and some more “Americanized” dishes. You will also see hatch chiles featured in several dishes, which is a nice treat for hatch chile fans.
Some of our favorite items include the Fajitas, the Espinaca con Queso dip, the Tacos al Carbon, (which come with an excellent tomatillo salsa), Spinach Enchiladas and when we are in the mood for something cheesy, we opt for the Cast Iron Skillet Chicken.
If you are in the mood to try several things at once, they do offer combination platters with two or three items or you can opt for the build-your-own burrito option. Salads are available for a lighter meal. One of our favorites is the Cortez Cobb Salad. And, if you are not a fan of Mexican food, they do have a burger and some BBQ choices.
In addition to the restaurant, Jalapeno’s launched a revamped bar area a few years ago where people can come eat, drink, watch sports and/or enjoy live entertainment. It also has large patios on both sides for outdoor dining. And, they have a take-out option with a reserved parking spot if you want your Jalapeno’s on the go.
Overall, Jalapeno Inferno is a great locally-owned place to stop by for a quick and casual meal or to meet some friends for drinks and snacks.
