“A good family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

San Jose has a large number of items on their menu. While the food appears to me to be somewhat Americanized, its really good and portions are generous. I particularly enjoy their fajitas. The beer is nice and cold and the mixed drinks are done well. The place is comfortable and well lit, very suitable for families. Prices and service will surely bring a smile.

“Pleasant and reasonable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012


This restaurant is well lite, reasonable prices, has mixed drinks, and good service. Not the place for a cozy, intimate dinner but a good place to meet friends and talk.

“Location a fooler”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

San Jose is located in a strip mall. Doesn't look like much from the outside. Inside it is large, attractive and very comfortable. The menu is extensive. The service is great, the taste, quality and quantity of food is outstanding. The prices are reasonable. Good value for your money. Enjoy!

“Vegetarian?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Ordered veggie fajitas, got chicken and beef in them. The beens are seasoned with pork. Never going back.

“nothing freshly prepared”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

After reading a very positive review in the AAA guide, we decided to try this place en route to Florida. What a disappointment! The wait staff is very earnest and sweet but the food and drinks - while very affordable - were very nearly inedible. The margaritas were made with a mix. The enchiladas and tamales were obviously just microwaved. The beef dishes were not filled with shredded beef but some sort of ground meat. Even the guacamole was clearly out of a plastic container and was not fresh. It was just plain gross.
