Jalapeño Inferno is a modern Sonoran Mexican restaurant concept, with two locations in Scottsdale, Arizona. Family owned and operated for over 15 years, Jalapeño Inferno is known for their award-winning customer favorites, like their extra fluffy flour and corn tortilla chips & salsa and their creative margaritas. Terry and Laura Craig, the founding team behind Jalapeño Inferno, believe in providing outstanding service, consistency, and truly exceptional flavors to their guests, at a reasonable price point.
Jalapeño 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.
Greatest “Margarita Madness ” menu in all of Scottsdale, creative, unusual and fun! Made from scratch authentic Sonoran Mexican cuisine with a contemporary twist. Specialties include sweet green corn tamales,chile crusted salmon,tequila-lime shrimp and mango chipotle barbecue tacos.
Dine on the spacious outdoor patio with North Scottsdale’s only creekside dining. Be sure to check out the different theme nights, current favorites are Coastal Baja Saturdays, Wine and Dine Thursdays (half priced bottles from extensive list), and Taco-Time Tuesdays (all you can eat tacos), call for details. Occasional live music on Cantina patio.
