On a Sunday afternoon, some friends and I were in the mood for a little Sunday Funday action. One friend suggested No Way Jose because she was craving queso and we all headed over there. No Way Jose is located in the heart of Federal Hill and it’s usually packed. The Ravens weren’t playing when we went which made the... More

We live in the neighborhood and have appreciated this restaurant for years. The food is always consistent and they have good specials. I could make an entire meal of the chips and salsa.

When you walk in you are greeted by brightly decorated interior with strung lights and colorful signs and a narrow bar. You can then head on back o the seating area that has tables and booths. The walls are adorned with a Corona themed mural. Once you have a seat you are given a menu and bowl of homemade chips... More
