The former Mexican restaurant, Don Julio's, is now Jalapenos, and new owner Jorge Resendiz plans to bring Mexican traditional dishes back to Basin.

Resendiz said he found his love for cooking from his family. His father, Eliazar, is even helping him in the kitchen.

His restaurant will feature a variety of different family recipes.

"I like to cook and I like the work of the restaurant," Resendiz said. "It is also nice to be able to be your own boss."

This is the first restaurant Resendiz has owned, but he has had experience in the restaurant business from working with his family.

He also plans on moving to Basin from Powell, along with his wife and two children, so he can live close to his business.

Jalapenos will feature a variety of dishes such as chimi-changas, smothered burritos, chili relleno and much more. There will also be daily specials and Mexican soda available.

"Every day there will be something different for the special," Resendiz said. "Everything we cook is also homemade including the chips and salsa."

Jalapenos will be open every day except Wednesdays. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for lunch and 5 to 8 p.m. for dinner. Resendiz also plans on serving breakfast in the future.

Jalapenos will also do carry-out orders. For more information, call 568-2210.
