I wanted to come to this restaurant the last time I was here but didn't. I sure wish I would have. I'm back in town and wanted to try it out. My dinner delicious especially the chips and salsa. Plus, it's close to my hotel. When I am back here for work, I will be back.

If you love fresh guacamole, this is the place to come. Decor is not fancy, but the prices are very reasonable and the food is real.

On a trip to visit friends in North Carolina, we happened upon San Jose Mexican Restaurant. We knew nothing about it and decided to take a chance. Well, the cuisine is authentic and they were more than willing to do exactly what we wanted. The food was fresh and served hot...the way we like it. Chips were served hot as... More

Sorry, but this was one if the worst meals we have not enjoyed along the Interstate. After reading the reviews, we thought table side made guacamole sounded terrific. All was going well until the dish was over salted by the supervisor teaching the new employee. The margarita mixer reminded us of limeade and was overly sweet I ordered the steak,... More

We always stop at San Jose when we are traveling in this area. The taco salad is great and a great value also. The staff was courteous and attentive.

I would not normally go to a Mexican Restaurant in a town that I don't associate Mexican food with such as Lumberton, NC. However, visiting some friends in the area, they said it was great. Well as you can see I gave them a Very Good Rating. It wasn't 5 Star (or circle) good, but it was pretty good. The... More

We had the most authentic Mexican food at this place. Service was also good. Try their glaucomole. It was the best glaucomole we have had. Prices are reasonable too. We will definitely visit this place again...

The service was a bit lacking and I tired of watching a wasp walk on the window over my table with no one coming to get rid of it. Not my best experience in a Mexican restaurant.
