The food is consistently good. The folks that own it have been in the Blythewood area for 20+ years and they are always so friendly.

We live locally and have given them several chances, but I just don't see us going back anymore. There are better Mexican restaurants that aren't that much further of a drive. My last visit was after I said I would never go back and they confirmed why I made that decision last time. If you get the right server, the... More

The food just seems like it is coming out of the can or bag from a restraint supply company. I'll pass.

Just stopped in for a snack at the bar between lunch and dinner. Very pleasant and accommodating waitstaff. Furnished us with some very awesome hot green salsa upon request. Split carne asada taco plate and it was very fresh and flavorful. Great prices!

I have eaten here several times. They have the best home made guacamole. Prepared fresh right in front of you, the best in town. But the last two times I've been service very slow and the food not at the same caliber.

Great food and 17 different flavors of Margaritas. We each had 2. They are small and a little pricey for the size, but good.

Usual long Mexican menu so decision is a chore but have never been disappointed with anything ordered at San Jose. Service is friendly and fast. A nice bar as well.

The service was great, they have a full bar (and they even stock Carta Blanca beer) and the food was okay. It was not all that authentic, using ground beef instead of shredded (for example). Serving sizes were smallish, which is fine for two seventy-something people.

My husband and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Blythewood, SC and decided we would have dinner at San Jose, it was great. I had a margarita and we shared the shrimp fajita which was plenty for the 2 of us. Not sure why anyone would say their food was bland. The spice on the shrimp made you... More
