My favorite place to eat in Lumberton

Delicious Shrimp Quesadilla and House-made Guacamole and chips. Others had fajitas which were also delicious. Good, friendly service. Need to make a better Margarita and Salsa,

Saw reviews on this place and decided to try it. The salsa was the best thing. Service was good, the food was microwave hot and bland. The Chimi's were fried ahead of time and put in the microwave so that they were delivered nice and mushy. Yum! The Burrito's were what I would call steamed not baked. Probably made ahead... More

This Mexican restaurant is pretty good. We've been a total of 4 times this past month. The white cheese dip is good and the chips have always tasted fresh. The guacamole is really good and can be made fresh at your table. I get mixed fajitas and my husband gets fajita nachos. Everything is fresh and tasty. Once my fajitas... More

I generally only review places for which I can write a positive review... the "if you can't say something nice then don't say anything at all" theory. But I feel like I have to write a review after picking San Jose Mexican Restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were looking for lunch on the way home from the beach... More

We were driving thru and saw the great reviews for this restaurant so we decided to stop. The reviews didn't lie. Authentic atmosphere with old, custom, bucket seats. We went during lunch. The prices were very reasonable, $5-$6 for meal. The food came out quick. Hot and tasty Mexican meal. Everything was perfect. No recommendations for improvement.

Family of four for $31. We were stuffed! Great tacos, fajitas and fresh guacamole. The Baja fish tacos were just ok.
