Jose Tejas' bar and dining room are one big room so, although the food is good, as is the service, the noise level is overwhelming. Just one or two loud people at the bar can ruin the dining experience.

This place is always busy and there is always a wait. The tex mex food is consistently good and so is service. We love the burger and fries. Chili is great too. Excellent free chips and salsa.

I have been going to Jose Tejas since they opened and my wife and myself for the past 10 years. We visit every weekend for lunch and my wife always orders the same salad. Steak fajita salad with iceberg lettuce instead of field greens no tomato no onion and balsamic dressing. We went this Saturday and she ordered the same... More

We were shocked to find this place ridiculously packed at 6:45pm on a random Tuesday. First of all, it's difficult to get into. If you're travelling north on Route 1, DO NOT miss the turn, or you'll have to turn around several times to get back. Turn as soon as you see their big "EAT" sign after Woodbridge mall. Second,...

First up, if you have a party of more than 13, this is not the place to be. First the wait times easily will Be more than 2 hours, they will not be able to give you one table for everyone to sit together. You will have to sit in two groups, which to me defeats the whole purpose of... More

Long waits most every evening, but well worth it. Food quality is terrific and prices are cheap. If you like Mexican-American, don't pass up this place.
