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.

While wandering through the gold-rush country of California, we stopped for the night in the small town of Jackson. The clerk at the lodging establishment referred us to this gem when we said that we were looking for a good Mexican restaurant. She was spot-on. It was clean, authentic, and the food was delicious. The service was excellent, and the... More

The food here is only average for a Mexican restaurant, at least the one's that I'm used to. The dishes were bland, we had the burrito and enchiladas. Just not special. The service was very good and the salsa was great, otherwise, ok.
