Find Spanish Tapas and More at Jaleo

Jaleo means "fuss" in Spanish, but after visiting the popular Spanish eatery, it’s hard to understand the origin on the name. The food is anything but fussy, and although the flavors are complex, dishes like patatas bravas and chorizo casero are more classic than ornate.

The menu focuses on small plate tapas like Spanish cured meats, crispy fried morsels, and luscious queso dips. The best time to stop is during Sangria hour every day from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The tapas are specially priced, and the drinks are free flowing, like the Salt Air Margarita and Cuba Libre. When the weekend rolls around, book your reservation for tapas brunch for a selection from five different menu categories for one flat price. The bright and festive atmosphere at Jaleo is their secret weapon (secondary to the food, of course!), and it makes it a relaxing and happy place to eat and drink among friends.
