I have been going to Jose's for 30 years off and on again over the years, depending on if we visit LaJolla. This is my first review and the first time in 5 years since I have eaten here. First we went between happy hour and the night life startup (around 8:00PM) and easily got a great table. Our waiter was great and attentive, our food was fantastic.
We both had specials that were only $10 apiece for a full meal, huge portions, I had carnita's and my wife had a special enchilada, tostada combo, each only $10. We had a couple of drinks and got away for about $40 including a generous tip.
The location is perfect, in the heart of Prospect street, across from our hotel (La Jolla Inn).
There is nice on street seating as well, we had a table by the open air window to the street.
Now, we did observe the happy hour from our window and there were quite a few folks there and the deals we saw on drinks would have made for a very libatous time.
You can't go wrong at Jose's and although it does not have quite the same ambiance and variety as Alfonso's a couple of blocks down, the food is just as good at half the price.
