We went here on TripAdvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. We had relents and carnitas asada. Both very well cooked and tasty.

Best Mexican food around these parts! Love everything I have tried but especially the Chili Rellanos - not too spicy as I am a hot/spicy food wimp. But everything can be made as spicy as you like. Highly recommend?

The guacamole here was good! My husband and I were looking for some patio dining options this past weekend as we brought the dog with us on a weekend trip. Craved Mexican food so we ate here. I don't regret it! I ordered the chili relleno--always my favorite at my local Mexican food restaurant. I am so glad I did!... More

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.
