Great Food Great Price

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.

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.

Hands down one of my most favorite restaurants in New Jersey. Only 2 left here in New Jersey Fairfield and Woodbridge. I've been to both and they are both great from the staff to the portion size to the price I recommend anyone to try this restaurant only problem is it's always crowded because the food and price is extremely...

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

I'm usually not crazy about franchise restaurants, but I've always had a great meal here. The fish tacos are unbelievable, the portions are huge and the waitstaff are friendly and knowledgeable. As busy as it was, we were seated right away and the service was fast. The place is loud, but not so loud that you can't hear your dining... More

If you are in the area, Jose Tejas is a good choice. The wife, daughter and I have cemented a Saturday afternoon ritual where one of chooses a place to eat on a rotation basis. On several occasions, one of us had ended up choosing Jose Tejas because of its convenience (e.i, close to the mall, Taget and other store)... More

A fave for a fun night out with a date or friends. Generous portions on drinks and food. I've been going to Jose Tejas restaurants since they opened. The one in Fairfield is closest to my house. Casual dining with decor what I would call Mexican cantina-like. Greeted with a basket of homemade chips and salsa. Large, refreshing margaritas, beers,... More

I want to start off by saying how amazing our waitress was. Non stop service for a party of 14. Management gave her no help as we were not her only table. She confirmed everything, was on top of refills and gave great service. The food sadly was horrid. Food quality has been declining and last night was just awful.... More

Very good value. Nice staff and atmosphere. Portions huge so Brits beware over ordering! Went early (1730ish) no wait for table food or drinks but was busier when we left. No noticeable probs as in some of the other reviews.
