“predictable high quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

the food at chez jose is always well prepared from fresh ingredients. i've been coming here for 20 years and have always had a good experience. the only downside is the general noise level, they could use some noise attenuating materials on the walls and ceiling.

“Good Mexican Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I like this place but they give me too much food on my plate and I don't eat that much on a daily basics. The only time I come here is when my dad wants to come here.

“Best Mexican in Portland, so far”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Starting with the chips and (2 types) salsa which were very good. Guacamole was a good portion, and was served with chopped onions, olives, and more on the side which was super. I had one fish taco and one chicken taco ala carte. the fish taco was moist and tasty, the chicken taco a little dry. The portions are decent sized, and fresh but not cheap. like some people said, it is not superb, but really good and I will be back. BTW I lived in San Diego for 13 years - comparing a Ramiros taco joint to this sit-down restaurant with full bar is like comparing a Vespa to a Harley. both are good, but not in the same category. If you want authentic Tijuana food, there is an outdoor grill on Beaverton Hillsdale close to the 217 that serves $1 tacos, and makes fresh corn tortillas while you wait.

“Great place, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is actually one of our favorite places to eat in Portland. The food is always consistently good, service is very good, not all up in your face New York style, just laid back. It is a very casual place but can get very busy as it's a popular destination and has been at this location for a while. I think their prices are very fair and their margaritas are excellent as we always have them make them sugar free, meaning no syrup, just limes and tequila. Try it. Their food is kind of a mix of California meets Oregon, a little stylistic twist from the regular Mexican food you would have in this area. Great place, good location, nice people.
