My favorite authentic Mexican place closed it's doors in the beginning of this year and I've been in search of a good authentic Mexican place ever since. A friend of mine mentioned that my wife and I try Jose's so we decided to give it a shot. It was great! The food was very authentic. We got the chimichanga and... More

We have been back every time we visit Spring Lake. A neighborhood find for sure. Food is plentiful and fresh and the atmosphere is all that you'd expect for a bare bones basic Mexican place. We have worked our way around the menu and never disappointed! Friendly an lively... Worth a try --- you'll be back.

Although we are local this was our first trip to Jose's. My husband was craving a burrito; it certainly did not disappoint. They made it to his liking, stuffed full of chicken, rice and beans. It is huge, so bring your appetite! The Dorato shrimp tacos were also quite tasty, filled with shrimps, tomatoes, lettuce and cheese. We would not... More

It was an excellent hole in the wall mexican restaurant. Nice sized portions. We ordered the spinach and mushroom quesadilla as an appetizer and it was delicious. Had the fish tacos as the main course. Would 100% go back or drive the hour south.

A happy atmosphere as you enter helps start the meal off right. The building is a converted older store, but plenty of light, a few outdoor tables and a home style menu make it a wonderful stop for real Mexican. Had lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed the food, the staff the time together and made later appointments... More

Always looking for a good Mexican restaurant finally found one, Good food, good service and very reasonable prices. Fresh salsa, loved it. The refried beans were the best i ever had, not mushy at all. Would go back tonight if my husband said ok. Can not wait to try more things. Fried plantain for one and then make my way... More

This no frills BYOB Mexican place has great food at reasonable prices. It's a no frills place with a few tables. We got take out as were staying at a nearby inn. If you like Mexican - this is a great choice. Salsa/Pico was solid good; chips were ok.

Having been to the Spring Lake area several times over the past 4 years, my wife and I have never been disappointed by the meals prepared for us at Jose's. Portions are very generous, especially for the price. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of the restaurant as the food can't be beat.

We have gone to Jose's as long as they have been here. It is a small place and if you get there during the busy times, you may have a wait but...WAIT! It is fresh, delicious and you get plenty of food. Everything is made to order and they accommodate any changes you may have. We have had several different... More

Joses is always our "go to" place for dinner. It is reasonable and always good. Its a byob, which makes it even more affordable.
