We serve comfort food that celebrates our forefathers’s Mexican roots and the culinary traditions of the local neighborhood. "On the plate, “Mexican-Southern” translates to dishes such as chicharrones and waffles, and shrimp and masa “grits” with Chihuahua cheese. You can expect to see Southern staples such as okra and collard greens done in new ways, too. An emphasis on local sourcing means that even the chiles rellenos on the traditional side of the menu may not always be made with the standard poblanos." Greg Cox, N&O

I love this place, the guacamole is awesome, the service is amazing. We go here at least once a month and it is never disappointing. The floutas are also the bomb, along with the corn and just about everything else they have on the menu

Great atmosphere. Great service, and the food is fantastic. Plantain steak sandwich was incredible. The churros with chocolate dipping sauce from videri (next door) are a must try.

I was in North Carolina on business last year and several people I met there said I MUST try Jose and Sons. I am SO glad I did. I apologize it has taken me so long to write this review but I will NEVER forget the experience I had from the moment I walked in the door to the time... More

Our group was doing a guided Raleigh restaurant tour and this was our first stop. We had the Kale Mac & Cheese and the Barbacoa. They were both amazing. I also had a Michelada to drink that was fantastic. I will definitely go back the next time I'm in Raleigh.

This place was formerly Jibarra Modern Mexican (same owners, same place). The decor has changed a little, the food is not any better. The server was awesome (Anna). The two dishes I tried had problems. The Chicharron and waffles seemed overwhelming, too much food and not that good. The ceviche had a strong vinegar taste, much more than usual ceviche.

What a wonderful place to go and get great food and relax! The environment is laid back and the staff are friendly and very welcoming. Try the skirt steak and blackened shrimp and kick back with a margarita!

Jose & Sons does not disappoint in any category. Every menu item we have tried has been amazing so far. We went for brunch one Sunday morning and had the Guadalajara Skillet and the Huevos Rancheros, and they were exceptional. Then I returned with my sister for dinner. I ordered the Barbacoa, which was tender and full of flavor. My... More

We finally made it to Jose and Sons and were not disappointed. This is a great restaurant, and everything on the menu sounded wonderful. Our party all tried different things and no one was disappointed. The regular guacamole is excellent, as is the salsa they bring to the table. We also ordered the special guacamole, and it was so hot!... More

had to go downtown to pick up some jeans and stopped in on a Sunday with the family. They have the best Bloody Mary in Raleigh. The mix is house made and comes with a beer chaser. The BLT tacos and chicken Caesar salad are amazing.
