I get something different every time because they take the time to explain what I am getting. The guacamole is the best. Love it!

Family of 15 went for dinner, this is the second time in a year we've been to this restaurant, both times in large groups. Walking in at 9:30pm (after shopping) and we're seated ... but then told the kitchen closes shortly and we have to hurry up and order (happened both times - annoying!). The staff are friendly, but as... More

I would say we are regulars at San Jose but the last few times the service and the food quality have been poor. We have to ask for refills and for napkins and for this and that. The food has been arriving cold and even old tasting. Not sure what is going on but will only give San Jose one... More

The wait staff as per previous reviews could use some customer service training-but the night I went they were not rude-in fact the one guy who was trying his hand at bartending and failed-went out of his way to attempt to make a second cocktail-their bartender was not on duty that night. Both attempts were thoughtful but I couldn't finish... More

Decent but not great food, not the best service... I'd recommend but don't expect amazing... That said there isn't much to choose from in the area...

I was very disappointed in the service and food at the end of our meal. I feel it was due to the employees desires to close up too early and neglected to considered those being waited on. 1.Beginning of meal ---- Service was very poor. 2. When meal was served, I did not receive a salad, What I received was... More

We drive all the way from Goldsboro, when we want Mexican. The food is fresh and flavorful. Best Mexican food around.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Wilson. Fast, cheap, good service and GREAT food. The Fajitas, Fajita Nachos and Arroz Con Pollo are my faves. Free chips and salsa while you wait. Good size portions. We go here at least once a week. Can't handle seating for large groups. (over 12 or so)
