San Jose is great, but only sometimes

When this restaurant is really on it, they serve great Mexican food in a warm atmosphere. Service is always great. Sometimes the food comes out quickly and is tasty, piping hot.

BUT, the restaurant makes up for it with great service, excellent beers on tap, and a fabulous menu !!... More

The staff at San Jose is always very nice. The food is good, but wouldn't rate it as great. I think that it lacks flavor sometimes but other times it is very good. Maybe it's the kitchen staff. We always visit, but the quality is spotty

Stop here every year going to Florida, just to eat here. Great Ribs, and cheap drinks. They also have daily specials depending on what day you are there.

The food is your average fast food Mexican fare. Fine for a quick meal. The beer is extremely cheap and cold, which brings me back!! Service was good, got in and out fairly quickly.

The place is dirty and run down. Service was fine. The beer is cheap. Commercial guacamole and commercial salsa that looked like tomato juice. The fiod looked and tasted as run down as the place
