We go here very often. Great family restaurant no matter how large your group is. Although we do not drink the drinks are very reasonable. Food is always very good although not gourmet. Young wait staff, mostly college students, who are there before you need them! Management is well run.

We eat here once or twice a month. The fajitas are amazing, and we are picky about what we say is good food. It's usually busy on weekends, but worth the wait. Our typical bill for me, my wife and daughter is $40-45...and that's including a margarita! Can't beat that, especially since it's such good food. The atmosphere is great,... More

Shared meals with friends of mine who had not seen in awhile. The service was good and the menu was extensive. The meals were served hot and the price was very reasonable. There was a lot of people so it was on the noisy side. We had a good time, and they did not seem to rush us.

Great food, well prepared. You can specify if you want it very spicy or very light on the spice. Food tastes great. It is a bit noisy but that is part of the fun!

The food here is delicious! They have a large choice of food with very big portions. The prices are extremely reasonable! The employees are always kind and get whatever you need! The decor is so cool and makes you feel like your in Mexico!

Went there for a chat with an old friend. The place is a bit loud for that type of dinner. But the place is great, good atmosphere, nice deco, large choice on the menu, good service. Food is tasty. Nice place to go.

Prices are great for the portions! Warm chips and salsa is something we get seconds and thirds on. Atmosphere is always loud but fun. Service is good. Nothing exceptional nothing bad. Try and get there early on the weekends otherwise a good wait

You can't beat a meal at Jose Tejas! The service is great, the prices are excellent, and the food is wonderful, with large portions. The atmosphere is very relaxed, and it can get a little loud at times, with the "ambiance" being that of a Tex-Mex cantina south of the border. I highly, highly recommend the Rt. 66 salad, the...

Great place, Fabulous service, cold beer nice atmosphere! I ordered a burger medium, unfortunately it came out rare - very rare! I took a bite (not knowing about the lack of "doneness"), and it kind of bothered me. THey took it off my check, the waitress was very sorry, the manager came over and made a big deal out of... More
