It's just a sstandard mexican restaurant, but the food is decent enough. They have a nice bar. The waiter-dude there was nice.

It's typical Tex-Mex, of the chain variety. I ordered tamales and either the lid fell off the spice jar or someone mistook cinnamon for chili powder or hot paprika. They were inedible! I sent them back and got tacos instead.

Excellant interior, great servers, great margaritas at good prices and delicious tons of food at really low prices -- especially at lunchtime.

All I can say is DISGUSTING! Everything about this place was dirty. Silverware was dirty and the plate my wife's food was served on had food stuck to the bottom of it. While we ate we noticed roaches crawling on a nearby booth. Had to go to the bathroom before I left only to find the bathroom had no soap... More

The margaritas are superb and they even have specials on them quite often. I usually request Amber as my server because she is such a pleasure and her service is phenomenal! This... More

I really should've known better. The recent reviews of San Jose have been quite critical, yet for whatever reason, I decided to go yesterday with my girlfriend - we were both in the mood for Mexican. Service was okay, and the place is nicely decorated, but the food really left much to be desired. The "quesadilla" was barely the size... More
