Great food, good portions and great service. Never tasted anything there I didn't like...I would recommend it to everyone.

My Mother and I went to this place one evening while I was in town visiting her, even though I am from the area. We both ordered a Modelo Especial beer and it came with a chilled mug, which was a good touch. Our waiter was friendly and prompt and even though she had initially forgotten some of our large...

Never had a bad meal here and you get such large portions for a great value. I always get the "little of everything combo" and never leave feeling hungry or let down.

Outstanding service, delicious food, and reasonable prices. Something for just about everyone, and even when they are busy the service is prompt. Been many times and never had a bad experience.

Good food, served hot and fast at a reasonable price. Not a "gourmet" meal by any stretch, but hey, it's Mexican, get a grip! Never been disappointed with any meal I've had at any of the locations, and that is more than I can say for any number of local eateries. Try it .. you'll like it!

The food is bland, but the drink prices are good. When you're on a budget it may be cheaper to make the food at home, it might have more flavor.

Favorite restaurant for Mexican/Tex-Mex food in the area. Fast, friendly service. Food is tasty. We try to be weekly regulars. Everything (that we've tried) on menu is good. Great place for typical fare (burritos, enchiladas, tacos, fajitas, tamales, etc.) with offerings including chicken, fish, shrimp, beef, pork. Sweet tea is amazing, by he way. Come hungry!

Once again, we tried to enjoy a meal at this San Jose location, two miles from our home. Wife and I went last night for a quick bite. We ordered a cheese dip and small beef fajitas to share. Cheese dip was luke warm but tasty. The fajitas came out nice and hot. A mid size platter of hot grilled... More

San Jose's has several locations in the Columbia area. We most frequently go to the Blythewood location. They have the most delicious salsa and we just can't get enough. The food is great, service is speedy and price is right.
