This is not a Chain, YEA !! No Gimmicks, No Fakes, just honest to goodness real Mexican food !! We the public should support more mom & pop restuarants for authentic ethnic meals.

Great hole-in-the-wall place. Their salsa is wonderful. Good vegetarian choices. My family that lives in the area gets takeout from Jose's all the time.

Jose cooks authentic Mexican food at his restaurant in Spring Lake Heights. The three of us came for dinner on Friday evening, and got a table immediately. As soon as we sat, they served us some chips and salsa sauce to dip while waiting for our food. My husband ordered the Beef Burrito, that was filled with beans and rice. My friend who recommended Jose, ordered Cheese Quesadilla with guacamole. My choice was the Tostadas with shrimp and guacamole. Jose is a relatively inexpensive restaurant, that gives you a large portion in every dish . All the food was very tasty, full with unique flavors and made on the spot. You actually see from the open counter how the food is being made- so it's definitely fresh. It was not our first time here, and definitely not the last.

Yuk, who puts canned cheese on Mexican food? The place is not very clean and the food is not Mexican but more like lousey Tex-Mex. Don't get me wrong, good tex-mex can be great but this just isn't it!
