Chez Jose
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Chez Joe is a hidden gem, serving excellent fresh Mexican fare at Orchard & University. Not fancy, but outstanding food, cold beer, and friendly service make this unimposing restaurant a winner in a neighborhood where there's some stiff competition. Don't miss it!

If you think you've been in a bare-bones eatery, you need to try Chez Jose. This is 2 guys running the whole enchilada, you should excuse the expression. No waiters - you order from a counter and pick up your own food. They save on a dishwasher by serving the food in aluminum foil in a plastic basket and providing plastic utensils. Then you clear your own table.
The food is actually very good, and if it were served on a real plate it might even be an enjoyable meal. But the atmosphere is well below the Mendoza Line. This is Pancho Villa meets Subway. Very similar to Qdoba in construction and quality. But two can eat for under $20, if that's what you're after.

We've been eating at this establishment for many years now. Never had a bad meal or even close to one. The food is consistently outstanding, one of the hardest things to do in a restaurant. Everything is fresh-grilled, even the many salsas are made fresh on premise. The burritos are state-of-the-art, huge, made with anything you want in them and they'll smother them with green chili on request. The barbeque pork is outstanding, as are the rest of the meats. We're particularly fond of the grilled vegetables they put in the burritos. Whole-wheat tortillas available on request. Cheap, good margaritas are a bonus. And don't miss the flan -- it's the best we've ever had anywhere, including Mexico. Don't miss this little strip-mall eatery!

The food was only so so. Probably won't be going back any time soon.
