Some of the best Mexican food we’ve had in a while! The chips were very fresh and perfectly crispy and the salsa (more like pico de gallo) was superb. We had fajitas that were exploding with flavor; although a smidge salt heavy. The kids shared...More

Service was good, salsa was good and fresh, but our entrees were just ok. We were seated faster than we thought we would have been based on how crowded they were.

My family and I walked over to eat lunch here after visiting the aquarium. My family loves Mexican food and eat at many Mexican restaurants back home. No way Jose’s did not disappoint. Service was great and quick. I recommend their Mexican pizza.

Jose seems to be set up for tourist keeping the seasonings and spice out of the food to cater to the less daring palette. The service is great and the drinks worth the price. I had a Chile Releno and it was the blandest that...More
