Face of Happy Hour
Meet Arnold & Allen – For those who think Mexican happy hour is nothing more than nacho chips and artificial margarita mix, prepare to be mistaken. Jalapeños has a happy hour not only colorful and tangy but immensely varied. Food enthusiasts from all across the Lowcountry seek out Jalapeños Mexican Restaurant for their own gustatory tour of Mexico.
The family-owned restaurant has spent more than 20 years unearthing the art and science of Mexican food. What started as a family’s deeply rooted appreciation for the beauty, passion and science of traditional and contemporary Mexican food resulted in one of the most successful family owned and operated restaurants in Savannah.
Thanks to Francisco Guzman (President and CEO), Arnold Castellanos and Allen Ray, Savannah’s recognized authority on entertainment and Mexican cuisine, Jalapeños, has made traditional Mexican cuisine an invaluable representation of a nation with a rich cultural identity. In order to sustain this culture of community and understanding, Castellanos has made a career of preserving Mexican heritage with frequent trips to Arandas and Guadalajara, Jalisco. Here he spends time researching the newest tequilas and exotic ingredients for his dishes. His goal is for everyone, Mexicans included, to appreciate the food and techniques that have survived generations of Mexican expertise. Recently awarded as Savannah’s Hispanic Businessman of the Year, Arnold Castellanos now owns and operates six locations in Savannah, Pooler, and Richmond Hill. They are excited to announce a new addition to Jalapeños’ eclectic mix of lively atmosphere and Mexican culture. In March, Jalapeños will open their seventh location Downtown on Broughton Street.
Jalapeños has quickly become the number one post-workday and late night happy hour destination in Savannah. In keeping with the restaurant’s flavor profile, the happy hour menu boasts a smaller (and more budget-friendly) take on Mexican classics. Looking to try something new? Arnold’s favorite pick is the fish tacos topped with a nice, cool Michelada. Allen goes for the Burrito Gordo and of course, tequila!
