Great Salsa

I loved the salsa and chips. Would go there again just for that. I got something that had steak but I don't remember what it was called, but it was good. The price was reasonable. Would eat there again.

We ate here our first day and LOVED it! The food tasted better than in Mexico! The menu was great and the food quality was better than we expected. The manager checked in at every table to make sure all was good.

Food and drinks were great. Went twice this trip. Wish we'd found this place sooner! Loved the chicken tamales.

My Chili Relano came with a 1/4 lb of thick deep fried batter around it! Fresh tomatoes were used in the salsa and the rice so it wasn't all bad. Carnitas dishes had no tomatillo sauce. Like Tex Mex? Go somewhere else.

After reading all of the bad reviews, we decided to visit this place anyway. What a mistake! We visited earlier in June and arrived around 9:30 or so. We were seated right away. There was only one other couple in there when we arrived but a few more tables came in after us. As soon as we were seated the... More

Wanted to try this place and we arrived at 9:20 pm. We were told that they had stopped seating people. The place was packed and it is summer time, so we were very surprised when they turned us away. Not only did they lose our business but another family was headed in and we stopped them and told them that... More

We visit No Way Jose's several times during each vacation to PF. We actually frequent both the PF on end the Burg one as well. The food is great and the staff is friendly. Great service and great atmosphere. Great for families. Cost is reasonable, too.

Ate here tonight for the first time. Exceeded expectations. Prices were VERY fair! Food was delicious. Jordan was our server, and was very good. The burritos are huge. The salsa is on the chunky side, more like a pico de gallo. We would have liked it to be a bit spicier, but it was good. Cheese dip was delicious. Atmosphere... More
