Local Mexican restaurant expands near Downtown

The local Jalapeño’s Bar and Grill is working to open its third Treasure Valley location.

The margarita and taco spot has hung a coming soon sign outside the old Tailgate Bar & Grill location on Ann Morrison Park Drive near Capitol Blvd. The Ted Challenger-owned Tailgate went out of business earlier this summer.

The chain started with a location in Nampa before expanding to Boise on Franklin Rd. near the Boise Towne Square Mall.  The outlets serve traditional hearty Mexican dishes, with a full bar and patio.

The new location is set for the bustling Lusk St. area which has boomed with the addition of student housing in recent years.

They also have pretty funny signs:
