I was just passing by this restaurant and decided to go after reading the reviews. It was weekend and the restaurant was crowded. I had to wait for about 30-40 mins outside, for the table. The ambiance really had mexican touch with some nice mexican music. But again it was noicy because of crowd. The chips and salsa was awesome... More

I really, really don't get this place. A) It's a chain. B) Both restaurants that I have visited are huge. C) They're always jammed. D) It's fast. E) It's cheap. So how is it that this food is sooooo good?!?! We love Mexican food and Jose Tejas is about my favorite Mexican place ever. Starting with fresh HOT salty chips,... More

I eat here frequently and it is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is always hot, fresh and delicious. I know this is a Tex/Med place, but try the hamburger. They are in my opinion one of the best burgers you can get. Its made fresh from ground chuck and served with shoestring fries. Fantastic.

We've been coming to Jose's for over 15 years. The food is fresh, prepared well and you always get plenty to eat. Their margaritas are excellent and the complimentary chips and salsa are the best.

We started out the evening having a drink at the bar. The young gentleman was an attentive bartender and very nice. We decided to have dinner elsewhere, but returned for a nightcap a few hours later. The woman who was bar tending was nice, but when we tried to order a second drink, she said it was too late. Evidently... More
