Tasty fresh Mexican food

Only one seat left in the house at lunchtime! Very popular, high energy restaurant. Lots of choices of Mexican food, some geographically unique. I had a Northern dish which had a nice light tomato sauce on it.

You can count on these folks, very busy this afternoon with students coming back and after church crowd. All four of us enjoyed our meals. We will be back.

My wife and I like to dine out frequently, and one of our favorite locations is Jose's. In fact we recently went there twice in a three day span. I get tired of the greasy Tex-Mex fare. Jose's menu is for delights that are popular in Northern Mexico where Jose originates from. The service is always excellent, and the meals... More

Very busy with minimal wait-staff. Our group was 8 people waited 20 mi to be seated. The dining room was very noisy. so much so we had to yell to talk to the person sitting next to us. The waiter was good and did his best to care for our table. He did keep the chips, salsa & tea full... More

We were in town for the night and asked the clerk at the hotel for a good Mexican place and this one came highly recommended. It had good reviews for the most part too so we gave it a try. The service was good but the food was just okay. The queso was orange which threw me a little, but... More

My husband and I started eating at Jose's in the late 80s when we were at A&M. Back then it was in a secluded house way out on Harvey Road, before a fire burned it down. Now our daughter goes to A&M, and each time we visit, we eat here! I never ever get anything other than enchiladas nortenas, but... More

Friendly service. Cheese enchiladas are delicious. Chips are thin,crisp, hot and fresh. Their hot sauce is a bit on the bland side but I like hot n' spicy.

First, let us start off with what this is not... Not traditional "tex mex" most Texans are familar with. More use of flour tortillas, not much cumin or yellow cheese. It does not have the "fire" but subtle flavors and notes. Having just come from Arizona and having eaten Sonoran style food, I very much appreciated Jose's. Looks small from... More

Locally owned. Quick service. Great attentiveness by the wait staff. They keep your drinks full, chips filled, and are always polite and friendly no matter how busy they are. The prices are good and the quality and quantity and excellent. Highly recommended!

Locally owned Mexican place offers a nice alternative to all of the chain Tex-Mex restaurants in the area. Food is pretty good, and it is very inexpensive. Offer daily lunch specials.
