It's a little far from my house, but when I am in the area... I love going here. As soon as you open your car door, the sweet aroma of steak smacks you in the face. Every meal in this place is just awesome, and the food portions are fit for a king.

Received a lukewarm recommendation from local hotel to try this restaurant. The chips and salsa were excellent, but the food was just average. Nothing special here.

While visiting in Jersey my mom and I noticed how crowded it was outside of Jose Tejas. So we asked our hotel how it was, they raved so much on how amazing, and worth the wait it is. We ended up checking it out, wait was about 1hr and 20min, but as we got seated the server came right over... More

Great food, but can be very noisy when it's crowded. Overall very well worth the noise for the food; but not the place for a quiet dinner with conversation.

Be careful when you go, this is a very popular restaurant and is usually crowded with long waiting times. However it is worth the wait as the food is good and not overly expensive. Do not think that you will have time to sit and chat, food is delivered almost as soon as it is ordered and cleaned away before... More

Sound strange mixing Mexican and Creole together but they have great food. I had the pulled beef tacos with guacamole and sour cream. They were amazing. I was glad they only gave me two because I could have eaten my weight in them. Excellent! The waitress was also fantastic. We even called the manager over to let her know how... More

Super Delicious! I went with my good friends that live in NJ and I was up visiting from NC. The music was lively, the atmosphere very engaging and relaxing. The homemade Guac was fab!! I would absolutely recommend this place to folks & I will Definitely go back when I visit again!

Good place to go with the kids. My favorites are the route 66 salad and chicken bandera. Kids favorite is the chicken quesadillas.
