Guests started gathering at the new Jalapeno Tree before 10:30 Monday morning. By 11:00 the porch was full of hungry customers, eager to experience Mineola’s newest restaurant and bar. Owner Paul Bambrey and general manager Ralph Gonzalez were in the midst of the activity, ensuring patrons had a wonderful lunch.
The new Jalapeno Tree restaurant in Mineola is moving right along. It will include a meeting room, complete with A/V equipment, that can be used for meetings, luncheons and other events. The old Safeway building in Mineola has been completely renovated to house the restaurant.
