From the outside it doesn't look up to much, situated in a shopping plaza. On entering inside, we were blown away. Fabulous ambiance, helpful staff without being pushy, and food is simply awesome! We have sampled a wide variety of things from the menu, and this is definitely the place to eat in Clermont

While we have been to San Jose's often today we found it new. With our normal favorites not on the menu we had to make new choices. I am recommending the Burrito Texacanos. The four tortillas where very tasty and the steak cooked perfectly. With beans on the side the overall dish was a 10 out of 10.

Love the delicious food and the staff is nice. The only problem I had was in the bathroom, when i got my hand caught in the stall door trying to open it. It opened both ways and you had to force it open, other than that rather unpleasant experience, this is definitely one of my favorite restaurants!

Requested a chile relleno burrito after seeing the two items listed separately on their menu. Was denied a simple request based on "it's weird". Chile relleno burritos area staple menu item at Mexican restaurants around the world. I even made it clear that $ was no issue, I'd happily pay the determined amount. HOW HARD IS IT TO PLACE THE...

The service is excellent, they have a great menu and the atmosphere us like being in Mexico! Very festive! I usually get the chicken taco salad or the shrimp fajitas...both are amazingly good. Everything is so fresh! My husband usually gets the chicken chimichanga and camarones de cocktail (shrimp cocktail) which is to die for! It's big enough for two... More

We stopped in to San Jose's Original Mexican Restaurant this evening as we were passing through Clermont on a trip. I wish we lived closer to it, I would eat there frequently! Food was excellent with generous portions. Our server, Jordy, was outstanding. He brought our food and drinks quickly and checked on us routinely. If your travels take you... More

This is a great place to have a good meal. I live near by so it is a regular stop for us. They have great specials including 2 for 1 margaritas and sangria. There is normally a coupon in the local newspaper for buy one meal get a second for 1/2 off. If you buy a San Jose's T shirt... More

This is by far one of the nicest restaurants to eat in Clermont. Not a good frontage, but awesome on the inside. Lovely unpushy waiting staff, Scrupulously clean, and fabulous food. Great atmostphere at the weekend!

This was the second time we have gone here and we were not disappointed. This time there was a Marichaci Band and they were very good. So the next time you go it can be anytime but make sure you go on Sunday.

Went here for a "first date!" :) it was a wonderful choice! Our server was super friendly & fast and of course the food was delicious! To top off our what turned into a "romantic" dinner, we had the Mariachi Band serenade us at our table. They were totally awesome! I couldn't have asked for a better evening! :)
