Enjoyable family dinner

We visit the Hot Springs area several times a year, and we always make time to go to dinner at Jose's! The food is consistently good. I love their green salsa! I've ordered their Fajita Chicken Nachos several times and they are delicious! Very generous portions on all dinners. We will... read more

There are 2 locations for Jose's. Same great food at both, but the Central Avenue location has a special ambiance. Weekends they have Mexican singers walking among the diners for some really good atmosphere. All of their dishes are authentic Mexican. They are not pricey, but they are really good and their Margaritas are perfect. The chips and salsa will... More

Took my wife and kids there for Valentines Day dinner. Service was excellent. The food was all very good. This place is very good as well as an outstanding value when it comes time to pay the bill.

Jose's is tucked just on the outskirts of town, but my server was friendly the beer was cold, and I never ran out of salsa. I had the mucho quesadilla and it was flavorful and plenty of food. I enjoyed my experience.

We had been craving good Mexican food on our trip since we are so used to Tex-Mex. Jose's definitely filled our craving! The chips and dip were great and the green sauce had a nice kick to it which I loved. The drinks were great and fair priced. My wife had the chicken fajita chimichanga and I had the Pancho... More

We had a table of 4. They brought out salsa for each person and a single dish of a green (tomatillo?) Creamy Cilantro and jalapeño salsa. I got the tortilla soup combo which came with a fajita chicken quesadilla and beans and rice. Prices were fairly cheap in the 7-11 dollar range on average. Everything tasted great. They also have...

Ordered takeout for my family of six. Picked up someone elses order, return trip and cold food this time. Tex-mex is hard to get right but getting customer service right can be the tricky part.

My son & I stopped in our way home from visiting my husband in the hospital. I went for tortilla soup with a half quesadilla, and it was all delicious. The warm chips served with yummy red salsa AND a spicier (delicious) green salsa upon being seated is scrumptious. Always a family favorite.
