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

We were trying to find a new Mexican restaurant in the Clermont or Winter Garden FL area and started to do some research on the internet and found this GEM of a Mexican restaurant. To start our with there was a wait which in my mind is always a good sign. The chips, salsa and cheese dip were excellent. Then... More

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
