Reviewed 10 February 2013

Food is delicious, lately prices have gone up. Went to eat a few days ago and I feel they over charge me my bill was more than what I actually consume. Instead of getting an apology I had an argument with the manager he was very nasty and rude. I do not recomend this restaurant to anyone.

It became apparent almost immediately that the previous review was accurate. The service started out very iffy. The server appeared more interested in talking to the ladies behind me than my business. But it improved and my meal was satisfactory. I had the coctel de Cameron (shrimp cocktail). It had abundance of medium shrimp and avacados and was quite flavorful. Ended better than it began.

This place is one of the worst letdowns in Wilson. It has really good food, probably the best of the Mexican restaurants in Wilson. The atmosphere is good, but the service is HORRIBLE. You're lucky to get in and out of there within an hour to and hour and a half. They walk around chewing gum/blowing bubbles without noticing your drinks are empty. They take forever to give you menus, take your order, bring your food and even longer to bring your check. Sometimes, they'll even bring the wrong food. It's the worst food service I've experienced in a VERY long time.

everything was tasteful and service was wonderful. Food came out perfect and in a timely manner. From the hotels off 95 you have to drive into town a few miles but definatley worthy of the trip.

Fried seafood is a standard fare along the NC southeast coast. For those on Oak Island, San Jose is a welcomed addition to the standard seaside fare. The current restaurant is the second version of an earlier attempt at serving Mexican food on the island. The restaurant was completely redecorated; the standards of service raised; and the quality of food preparation greatly enhanced. The menu offerings are those that one would expect. Lunches are especially reasonable in price and adequate in portion size. The service upon arrival is always prompt and the Mexican chips and salsa arrive within minutes of being seated. If you would to avoid the long lines at the more standard seaside fare restaurants and enjoy an alternative to seafood, try the San Jose.
