Where should I start. The waiter wasnt very accommodating. The food wasn't all that great. There was what seemed to be dirt in my water. But it was reasonable. Not sure if I would recommend.

Stopped in for dinner while in town. Not that I would hold it against the food, but the bar service was terrible. Once I finally got to order I found the chips and salsa were just OK, but adding the guac was a good choice. I had a burro, which was tasty but I wish I had the steak Bowie... More

Have been many times, food is really good,. He gumbo and Cajun are favorites. The place can be VERY noisy, the plus is it's a great place for kids. Service is friendly but can be slow.

We ate here 3 out of 4 days that we stayed at the LaQuinta across the parking lot. We had the fajitas, blackened catfish and blackened salmon. Everything was very good, but the 2nd time we had fajitas, the meat was not as good as the first time. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the music, but it is loud. If... More

The service was very good, the waiter was attentive and refilled my wife's iced tea without asking. The blackened swordfish was very tasty as was the gumbo. I have been here many times and always leave full and satisfied. The hall-like structure can become very noisy when full. I go there very early when the place is not crowded yet.

Great for couples, friends, or a middle meeting place. Free chips to start with, huge drinks, and great, inexpensive food. I've been here plenty of times, each just as good as the past. Always packed after 5, I wonder why?

Have been to Jose Tejas many, many times and love it. It is a great place to get a good mexican meal and a great value. The chips and salsa are wonderful. The French Quarter chicken is fantastic as is the blackened salmon. Our problem in the past year is that they keep changing the bar and not for the... More

We have eaten here several times over the last few years. Unfortunately it has gotten to be just another too crowded, too noisy, too dirty chain restaurant. The selections never change and I'm not too sure the dishes and cutlery do either. We have not gone back after the 2nd bout with intestinal distress from one of the salads. Its... More
