Jalapeno's Grille in Walpole
A friend of mine ate at this place and was raving about it for authentic Mexican. Anyone tried it?
Yeah, it's actually pretty good and reasonably authentic. Owned by a chef from Mexico and serving what would probably be best desribed as Mexican street food, with some more upscale entrees. Had really good pork soft tacos there last week (braised, called Michoacan on the specials menu).Good mole, rice 'n beans. Restaurant somewhat overshadowed by the hectic bar scene at times. Don't know if I'd drive an hour to eat there, but definitely a hidden gem.
I like Jalapenos too, although I think their prices have come up a bit. I prefer them to the other Metrowest mexican outlets (Alamo, etc.). I think the Chef had a small place on the same block first, which i really enjoyed before moving into the current space. Very good Carnitas.
