Great Mexican

We stopped in here for dinner on a Saturday night and were well pleased with the experience. Nice facility, beautifully decorated with well done murals. The food is very tasty. Comes out hot and quick. I enjoyed my margaritas and found the staff friendly and helpful. Nice stop.

We had seen the good reviews for this place and were visiting Columbia, so we tried it. We were very pleasantly pleased. The decor was nice, the service was good, the portions were plenty to take with us to have a second meal later with the leftovers. I especially liked the salsa with the chips. It was so yummy.

Love the large variety to choose from! I typically stick with a number 6 combo and I love the white cheese sauce and crispy chips!

I came here to eat dinner with my friends. We where there about 20 minutes and just finishing our food when the waitress grabbed our drinks off the table and said we had to go. She said there were to many people waiting and we needed to go. I have never been asked to leave an establishment that I was... More

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 a slice of cherry tomato and 3 very small wraps.... 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!
