It is a busy place, but the food is okay and service was nice. It is Right on Hwy 70 just before the 'Y'.

On the recommendation of the manager of the La Quinta across the street, we gave Jorge's a try. We love good Mexican food from all regions. The food at Jorge's is well made using good ingredients and is very good. I had the carnitas and a side of the crispy chili relleno. My wife had the Chicken fajitas. The relleno... More

I am a foodie so I was happy we found this place. We went twice and should have gone 3 times. Food was on point and staff was friendly. Bathrooms were clean and smelled clean. Food was very portioned, but overall great experience and great food.

We would choose this place over all the other mexican restaurants in town. They have a large menu with some non mexican food items like burgers if you have people with you that don't like mexican. We went on a Thursday night around 5 and it wasn't very crowded so we probably received better service than some other reviewers did.... More

Since we are from the San Antonio, Texas, area, we are used to the Tex-Mex food. The food at Jorge's was good, but different from what we like. Not sure if we would return.

My wife and I were driving a car for a friend from Minneapolis, MN to Tucson, AZ. We had stopped in Wichita Falls for the night. Because some crazy guy was jumping out of a balloon at some ridiculous altitude there were no places to stay anywhere in the Easter part of NM. So, we drove from Wichita Falls, TX... More

Jorge's Cafe is across the street from La Quinta Inn and Suites. This is not a fancy place,but the food is excellent. The restaurant in size is small. The service is very good. I would go there again.

We were told to go here by the staff at our hotel the first night we got here. It is a little hole in the wall. The decore is redneck contemporary. it was packed with locals on Tuesday night. The food is Mexican, it is above average and very affordable. We were then told to try this place by just... More
