We were amazed how family friendly they were. The kids menu as other dishes are all very generous. The staff was amazingly helpful, patient and kind. I even saw the manager assisting with dishes, moving tables and offering better seating to help things flow.

Great food, great price. My daughter has multiple food allergies and the waitress worked with us to ensure she got a safe meal. The manager also came out to verify with us her dietary needs and they both knew the menu extremely well. Made it an even better experience.

The only reason I can't quite give it 5 stars is that I've had better Tex-Mex. That being said, for the prices they charge I don't think you can beat it. The service is quick and efficient as well. If you plan to go for either dinner or lunch expect a wait. This place gets crowded fast.

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
