One of the reasons we love Hot Springs

The best Mexican food we have ever had. My tamale was so good that I could have eaten a whole plate full. The server was wearing a knee brace but didn't let that keep her from taking excellent care of customers. We always go to Jose's.

The only thing a bit different here is the green salsa the serve with the chips. Not that it is great, it's ok, just a bit different. The food is ok but unremarkable

This place has great food and drinks. They are very fast and friendly. The night we went there was a man singing. It is very close to the lake and not far from downtown Hot Springs. I will be back again.

i gave this restaurant one star only for the atmosphere. The decor was very different and enjoyable. The food was worse that bad. I had fajitas and the meat was rancid!! I told the waitress and she argued with me that it was fresh. I was very disappointed and will never eat there again

The service was outstanding! We were a rather large group, and our server handled everyone's order without a hitch. Everyone there was lively, friendly, and helpful; they seemed pleased to be there. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was very festive. The place was exceptionally clean and well-run. I will definitely be back!

Service is very good. Unfortunately the food is just average. Lacking in taste and too Americanized for a lover of authentic Mexican food. Ok for people who don't know what good Mexican food is. A tourist destination.
