“Great little find, so sorry to see it go!”
Review of San Jose Mexican Restaurant - CLOSED

San Jose Mexican Restaurant
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We stopped in for an early dinner during our OKI vacation this year and were sorry to learn the place was closing the following day! We got very good service, chips & salsa, a tasty meal from a very large menu with tons of choices, and huge delicious drinks from the bar. The portions were good size, and very reasonably priced. I would absolutely have gone again! Sorry to see this something-different option leave Oak Island. Thank you!!

Food is about what you expect in a Mexican restaurant. No better, no worse. Service was terrible and they weren't crowded, there were plenty of vacant tables near us.

Nothing different from most mexican restaurants in NC. Lots of food for the money. I tried a new menu item advertised as fresh guacamole made table side. No biggie that it wasn't made by our table, but I was disappointed in the lack of flavor. My husband likes this restaurant better than I do.

We were not given menus until we had to ask five minutes after we were seated. Our waiter kept running outside to cough in the middle of taking our order. Yuck. Ordered a margarita before ordering our food and it still hadn't come half way through eating our meal. All wait staff was running around sweating like chickens with their heads cutoff. Understaffed and not organized. You could feel their energy which made it hard to relax and enjoy our meal. Texas fajitas barely had any meat on the plate. Bland.

The whole experience was expensive, bland and rushed. Not a place to relax, which is what we wanted to do with the family. We finished our meal, plates were removed and we were presented with the bill!
