Jalapeño's is probably the closest Mexican restaurant to where I live and serves up servicable Mexican food. A mini-review on their Yahoo! Local listing mentioned a robotic cashier and I am pretty sure that robotic cashier is the one who rung up my order. They enjoy a pretty good reputation among locals who seem to think it's the only alternative to Taco Bell/Del Taco/Rubio's. They've got greasy, greasy chips and so-so salsa. They do have Jarritos soda and that is a plus. I ordered the Chile Colorado platter, hunks of beef smothered in hot sauce that'll make your eyes water. The tortillas that came with it were hot and fresh so I made myself a couple Chile Colorado Tacos. I had a coupon for "Buy One Dinner, Get the Second Dinner Half Off" so my roommate ordered a beef enchilada platter and reported that it was quite good. Don't ask me which of our meals was the one that was half off.
