We went here on TripAdvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. We had relents and carnitas asada. Both very well cooked and tasty.

Best Mexican food around these parts! Love everything I have tried but especially the Chili Rellanos - not too spicy as I am a hot/spicy food wimp. But everything can be made as spicy as you like. Highly recommend?

Jose's is a local favorite. Family owned and the food is very good. Tamales are delicious and the courtesy treat as a "Welcome" at dinner is good. Friendly atmosphere and good service are combined with good food.

Martha, the owner, is very friendly and treats everyone like family. The food is very good, service always prompt and food served hot. Martha migrated here legally, when she couldn't find work she started her own business. This is a must stop place.

Went for lunch and enjoyed the food. The lunch specials are tasty, quickly prepared, and easy to fit into the normal lunch time window. The chips kept coming and service was friendly. Would recommend to anyone for a quick lunch.
