Decent But Could Improve Their Fajitas

I usually get the vegetarian fajitas. The sizzling/grilled vegetable assortment is good. The chips with re-fried beans dumped on them is a waste. I would rather have some beans, cheese, and condiments to put on the fajitas (sour cream, salsa, guacamole). They give you a strange pile of lettuce with... read more

Went with a large group and we were very disappointed with food and service. Happy hour was over by the time some of us got our drinks.

plenty of food but not tasty Mexican. I have eaten in many Mexican restaurants and fell this one is in the bottom quarter of where I have eaten. Sauce was thin and held together by the cheese. Rice and beans were bland. Service was reasonable but more personally would have warranted a larger tip -- it is not all business.

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
