Every time we camp at Lake Louisa we head out for one of our nights at San Jose's. The restaurant is fairly small and fills up fast. There usually is a wait. The mojitos are very good. We usually start with the white cheese dip - the has chunks of pepper in it which I don't really care for and... More

We recently moved to Clermont and this restaurant was recommended by locals. We went for lunch today. We were greeted and seated immediately by friendly staff members. We ordered iced tea, which was freshly brewed. Warm tortilla chips and salsa accompanied our drinks. I had the California Burrito Junior with chicken and hubby had the same with pork. I don't...

We had an enjoyable early dinner. The service was quick. The chips and salsa were good. I had two enchiladas with rice. The seasoning was just right. The restaurant became busy shortly after we arrived but the service was still good. I will enjoy eating there again.

I was in Clermont earlier this month. I asked around for a good Mexican Restaurant. The locals said to go to San Jose's. We went there to try it out. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The Fajita's for two was great! Check it Out!

We used to frequent this restaurant when we lived in Clermont. Now we moved back to the area (Winter Garden) and we were glad to come back. The food is awesome! We loved it and will return with our kids.

On the first visit I found out why San Jose's is a local favorite. The restaurant is family owned and operated with other locations in he Central Florida area. Seating is comfortable, service is great and the food is authentically Mexican. Don't miss San Jose's is you're feeling for some good Mexican food.

My husband and I eat here weekly and have NEVER had a bad meal. It is always fresh and at a fair price. The chicken soup is the best I have ever had and the California burrito is not only falulous but big enough to share. Be sure to order the cheese dip it's heavenly and their chips and salsa... More

My husband and I crave San Jose's at least weekly but we try to only go or pick up to-go orders every other week. Great food and the best margaritas. Although they have a great '2-for' deal on house margaritas all the time, just go for the top shelf! It comes in a huge glass and will do the trick... More
