Great Fajitas!

This restaurant is charming inside and the food was delicious. We had their beef, chicken and chorizo fajitas and it was definitely one of the best we've had. This restaurant is reasonably priced too!

I used to live in south Texas so I know authentic Mexican and Mexican-American (Tex-mex) cuisine, and this place is fair at best. However if you are consulting this for Lumberton it is good for a small town. it is not the best in town. For authentic Mexican food including a wide range of Mexican beer, but no mixed drinks,...

The clerk at our hotel told us that San Jose was a great place for a margarita and since it was directly across the street, it was an easy walk . As it was New Year's Eve, we decided to get one. Although the bar was closed, we were given a table, served chips and salsa, and had a delicious... More

If you think you cant get excellent food while on a road trip you are mistaken. We had the enchiladas and quesadillas. DELICIOUS! My wife and daughter are picky eaters but due to this restaurant's cleanliness, great service, freshness of food, and deliciousness they were hooked. Too bad they don't have one where I live.

This was my husband and daughters first time eating at a Mexican restaurant and it couldn't have gone better. The food was terrific, service wonderful, the waiter was very helpful with menu selection. Would recommend it to everyone.

Lets start out saying, really nothing to dislike. Ate lunch at a San Jose's in Pembroke NC and then tried the one in Lumberton NC. Both were great. The wait staff was more than willing to accommodate a customers request. We had a little problem with our order but it was corrected immediately. The food was presented well. It had... More

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
