The frozen raspberry margaritas are DELICIOUS!! Not to mention they give you free, fresh chips & salsa while waiting for your table. It is WORTH THE WAIT! Recommend the delicious chicken fajitas!

We had lunch here with visiting family member that had come here from out of the country and it was a great experience for them. Take note that the portions are large and the drinks are also very large.

If crowds are an indication of a good restaurant, this place is the place to go! And guess what.. they are right. The food is excellent! Although they specialize in Mexican food, unlike my dinner companions I took the Cajun route. The eggplant with crab was absolutely delicious. I did find the accompanying Jambalaya a little dry but I would... More

We met our dearest friends for dinner at Jose's on Friday and were hoping to all get there at 6:00 PM but route one was really backed up. We try to get to Jose's by 5:00 PM to eliminate the 1-2 hour wait especially on weekends but the margaritas are so good (and huge!) that 30 minutes or so does... More

This casual dining family restaurant has a very lively atmosphere. It's noisy inside, and it's crowded. The decor, tables, and chairs mimic the rustic feel of the Old West. It makes you want to tie your horse to a post, hand your hat, mosey inside wearing chaps, and settle down at a table for chow. The wait time for dinner... More

I love this place, you feel like you are in Mexico, this is a destination place to go with friends, but hey- you better be there by 4:30pm on the weekends if you want a seat. Everything is good-Margaritas, both full power and virgin for the kids to try and the lightweights, and all the mexican fare. The best place... More

The frozen margaritas are great but the menu should be more diversified. I had a salad and it was supposed to come with salmon and they ran out of salmon. The appetizers are better than the entrees

Went to this restaurant for the first time last week. My brother goes all the time and joined us. We had the great shrimp and crawfish quesadilla to start, and then we had the beef burros which were great. Unfortunately, because the prices are so good, you have to pay for slides of guac or sour cream. The guac is... More

the very long wait that you have usually to deal with, above all if you decide to go there during week-ends. Anyways, you can kill the time by ordering some (really good) margaritas and (free) nachos at the bar. Once you conquer a table, however, the service is pretty fast and good. Overall, the food is tasteful and delicious, one... More

No matter what menu item you choose, it is prepared perfectly. Quick, competent male and female servers. Fajitas beef & chicken with rice and every imaginable side for 2 people, just $23. Bottomless warm chips & salsa, complimentary. Good with kids. On weekends, can wait an hour to be seated. Definitely worth the wait!
