“I get a craving for this food from time to time and have to return to get my fix!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

This place is nothing fancy, a small BYOB restaurant at the end of a small strip mall but the food is always consistently excellent. We of course got the chips and salsa but then ordered the guacamole which was really good and fresh. I had a Burrito which was on the special board which had shrimp, scallops and chicken inside. My wife had the chicken burrito which was also excellent. It is quite an extensive menu so you're sure to find something you like. If you are going on the weekend it is best to get there early as after 5:30 or so it fills up quickly any you'll have to wait for a table. They move a lot of food here so everything you order is very fresh. I never hesitate to go to Jose's. I am always in the mood for Mexican food.

“Best Mexican Food. Don't go any where else.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

A little family owned and operated resturant. Simply the best Mexican food in New Jersey. In fact, I might even say in the US. I have had Mexican food in New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, and Texas - and I couldn't wait to come home to Jose's. Don't let the atmosphere distract you. It is a jeans and sweatshirt place - with 5 star food. Best of all, it is BYOB. Love the chicken mola with corn tortillas.

“Great Food, Cheesy Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012 via mobile

I've been coming here for 15 years. It's a local dive with a cheesy decor, but consistent great food. Service can range from terrible to very good. Lately very good. Best salsa, which is more like bruschetta, and I haven't had a better chicken in mole sauce. And I eat at every Mexican restaurant I find.
