The place is OK. Is it better than the franchised "Mexican" restaurant, by a mile. But for someone that lives in a place with a high concentration of Latinos, not the least of which Mexican, this place is just aiight. I went with friends and we had a good time. The atmosphere is good, and I would go again.

San Jose is the best Mexican food in Whiteville (sort of like saying the best bobsled team in Daytona Beach) but the food is good and the service is excellent.

I have been coming to san joses since they opened many years back. It has always been a pleasant atmosphere and the food has always been excellent. Several years back they expanded and added the additional bar side. If you like mexican food you will love this place. By far my favorite in whiteville!

This mexican food is great but a little pricier than what we are used to at home. The avocado dip was spicy and wonderful. The service was not the greatest.

San Jose is a staple for us. The quality of ingredients in their food and drink is average but dependable. My faves are shrimp quesadillas, and tacos al pastor. Hubby likes taco salads. They have cheaper lunch specials, but nothing is super expensive. Many folks go there for the big area you can use for family or work parties. They... More

Some Mexican restaurants are just blah, but San Jose's does not suffer for lack of flavor. Each dish I tried (I have a family of 4 so I get to try their food!) was infused with good flavor. The chips and salsa kept coming (albeit slow because our server didn't come around often) and were delicious. They never brought my... More

Typical Mexican-American restaurant. Menu is ''dido'' of others seen in Anythown, USA. Salsa and chips pretty good... home made no doubt.

Our family of 7 stopped in to eat while on our way to Holden Beach. The resturant was full of customers yet we still had excellent service. All the waiters and waitress were buisy waiting on tables. None of that standing around talking you might see at other places. All of us got something different off the menu. Everyone said... More
