This is the hands-down favorite Mexican restaurant of my wife and I. Great entrees, tableside guacamole, unique dishes, strolling mariachi band. The Grouper ala Veracruzana is outstanding, the Juan Won tacos are a great Mex-Asian fusion, and the Guanajuato al Pastor is without equal. As is the case with any really good restaurant, they get busy fast especially on weekends,... More

We had a party of 9 people. Excellent service, great food, and a mariachi band that went to each table. We felt like we were in Mexico. A place not to miss! Customer service was A-1! Gluten Free menu with lots of choices.

Jose's is normally our favorite Mex restaurant, Went there last night ( Sat) as usual, a 40 minute wait for a table. So ordered Margaritas from the bar, delicious! Munched on Chips & Salsa while we waited, service at the bar was less than expected, I had to push empty bowl of chips/salsa back to get refilled, same with drinks-... More

My colleague and I just arrived at a nearby inn when we decided to eat here before retiring for the night. There's a line when we get there, I think we waited 15mins to be seated. I rarely frequent Mexican restaurants, so when I tried the guacamole, I think it was really good, despite my first time experience eating it.... More

Fresh guacamole made to order at your table. Refried beans were great! Fresh chips. Lots of choices, including combination plates. Shredded beef burrito was delicious. Service was excellent!

Always a wait, which means the locals love it. Love everything we've had here, but the tableside guac is not to be missed!

We love the able side guac here. But it's pretty obvious cutbacks are in full force when you pay $8.99 for guac with only 2 avocados when they used to use 3. It's disappointing to say the least.
