Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.

Food was just ok even for a budget Mexican place. Service was good. I thought it was odd that they used shredded chicken in a Quesadilla which made it kind of wet. So no complaints but nothing special either.

The place has the feel of a diner, and the menu is like a diner's menu with lots of choices. The food is priced low and the food is good. I had a Mexican dish that was huge and better tasting than I expected.

Trip Advisor showed this place with great reviews, so we thought we would give it a try. We were not disappointed. Very reasonable prices and very good food. The entire staff was very friendly and more than willing to check on us frequently to insure our happiness. Very clean facilities.

This local cafe was recommended by a few folks for good food at low prices. The bad part is they close at 8:00 and you really need to arrive by 7:30.
