The food is absolutely the best I have ever eaten. Mexican , Cajun , S.W. American food. It is a long wait if you go late but if you get there early , you get a table . Quick !! Great drinks , Great atmosphere. Carve your name in the table. It is allowed !! I just LOVE this place.

I have been going to this place since 1990! They opened up a few but his original is the one that survived. Good food. They need to add some authentic hot salsa. Not the best I had but it is among the top.

Delicious food, Heavenly drinks, Great service, Lively Atmosphere. The only con is the wait time. But I guess that's because everyone else knows how great this place is.

Everything we've gotten (and by now, we've sampled most of the menu) has been delicious. Special requests (hold the sauce, black beans instead of refried) have always been honored, and the waitstaff has been uniformly friendly... More

We have been going to Jose Tejas for the last 15 years and always find it very consist and good. The wait is always long, but you can order a drink at the bar and munch on the tortilla chips while waiting for your table.

Very afforadable tex-mex food. This is a noisy, festive restaurant with reasonably priced food and drink. Free balloons for the kids!
