Great Mex in the Motherlode

For 20 years, off and on, I've eaten at Jose's Mex in Jackson, CA and I can tell you , you can't go wrong. Dinner folks will be treated to my favorite, "Complimentary Quesadilla." Just awesome for a warm up. Chile Verde is to die for and always tender. Great place to eat.

This is one of my favorites for a quick lunch. Thursday is great as they offer tacos for only $1.50 each. What a deal!! They are fresh and tasty. I also have other items from the menu from time to time but you can't beat the Thursday deal.

Jose's is a local favorite. Family owned and the food is very good. Tamales are delicious and the courtesy treat as a "Welcome" at dinner is good. Friendly atmosphere and good service are combined with good food.

Martha, the owner, is very friendly and treats everyone like family. The food is very good, service always prompt and food served hot. Martha migrated here legally, when she couldn't find work she started her own business. This is a must stop place.

Went for lunch and enjoyed the food. The lunch specials are tasty, quickly prepared, and easy to fit into the normal lunch time window. The chips kept coming and service was friendly. Would recommend to anyone for a quick lunch.

The décor was nice both inside and out and located in a convenient location adjacent to the main highway. As for the food, it wasn't much to brag about. We've had much better Mexican food elsewhere.

We really enjoyed our visit to Jose's. The food was good and the service was outstanding. Try their strawberry Margarita for a refreshing punch.

Great meal, great ambiance! Staff was friendly and attentive. Loved the cripsy cheese chip served on large silver platter to all guests; this was a unique spin on the normal 'chips and salsa'. Food was yummy! Outdoor seating. Highly recommend.

The food was so-so. Nothing to write home about. They did serve a nice big flat corn tortilla with some melted cheese on top instead of the usual chips and salsa. That was the only stand out though.
