Consistently good food and service

We have been eating at San Jose for years. I love the fajitas and I always have leftovers. I also enjoy the Burritos Deluxe, but I get them both chicken. I don't like eating hamburger meat unless it's a hamburger. Our youngest likes the shrimp tacos. It's a good value and great service!

I'm, by no means, a Mexican fare expert, but this restaurant had some great tasting food, from my perspective. They have a new menu that our server was not familiar with, so we had to keep showing him exactly what we wanted. When we were served the food, it was great.

Great service, food consistently good, very cold beer! Salsa and chips very good. They use high quality cheese on their chile rellenos. Some of my favorite.

My family and I have visited twice in the past few weeks. On both occasions the food was good, service excellent and tables available at rush hour with little or no wait. Cheese dip is very tasty and the fajitas are a very large portion. Plenty to share between two adults with an appetizer and the chips and salsa. We'll... More

I grew up in Lexington and came back to visit with my fiancé. When he requested Mexican for lunch I took him to this San Jose location. The restaurant didn't seem to have any sort of lunch rush going on so we were seated quickly. The service we received was lacking and we waited a while to get beverages and... More

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.
