We choose this restaurant for good Mexican food. The menu has a great variety and good choices for children meals. You can make fruit a substitute for rice, too. Their 25th Anniversary margarita is wonderful and much better than their cheap house margaritas. Chips and salsa are unending and very tasty. Their espinaca dip is very flavorful without being too...

Stopped in for a quick business lunch. The staff was fantastic, courteous, efficient, and the food was very tasty. Love the salsa and chips. We have stopped here before for business lunches and found the experience similar - great! The atmosphere is about typical for a restaurant in this price range, but if you are looking for a great meal,... More

Standard Telmex style food. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very kid friendly. Nice place to stop if you are in the area with easy access to I-435.

Great menu with so many choices! Our guacamole dip appetizer was so chunky and tasty. I had ordered a Lime Tequila Chicken entrée and the chicken filet was dry. Our server was friendly and very attentive.

I've been to Jose's so many times that I'm burned out...but many people like this place a LOT! They have a pretty standard Southwestern menu with some interesting dishes, some better than others. They start you out with free chips and salsa which some people see as the mark of a good Mexican restaurant.

We had a couple of burritos for dinner that were great!! Great service, fantastic... More

Stopped in as I was staying across the street at the Hampton Inn. In the state for one day for marathon. The meal I had was great. Steak burrito covered in some type of sauce. It was recommended by the waiter when I asked what his favorite dish was. It did not disappoint. Typical chips and salsa. Wait staff worked... More
