Nice service, nice food.

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

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.

We had a wonderful experience here. The place is clean and food is good. Extensive beverage menu and tableside guacamole prepared fresh in front of you. I ordered the mango margarita and spinach enchiladas. No complaints. Very huge portions oh and good prices!!

We have been to countless Mexican restaurants and San Jose is now in my top three. The food was top notch, with the three dinner items having excellent presentation (the other two dishes were lunch specials that looked average but tasted great). The table made guacamole was fantastic as was the service (including the waitress asking if we wanted sweet... More

We are from the San Antonio, TX area. This restaurant was better than the any of the Tex-Mex restaurants here in Boerne and easily as good as the average in San Antonio. My wife ordered the chicken and spinach enchiladas. Although they are not exactly Tex-Mex, my wife declared them terrific. I agreed from the two small bites she gave... More

This was just across the road from the hotel I was at for a night. I walked over for a beer and appetizer. It was after 9pm and the bar area was already closed so was shown to a table and given a menu. I noticed the guacamole (made tableside stated in the menu) mine was not but due to... More

A hidden gem on a Saturday night after a long day in the car. We were not in the mood to wait at one of the chain restaurants, and didn't have to at San Jose's. Were seated right away, food and service were top notch, and prices were very reasonable. They even offer a military discount, and they advertise it... More
