“We are "regulars"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

San Jose's has several locations in the Columbia area. We most frequently go to the Blythewood location. They have the most delicious salsa and we just can't get enough. The food is great, service is speedy and price is right.

I ate their Tuesday night the food was good and the service was great. We had a birthday at our table and they sang without us even asking! The food is always consistent.

“Good, cheap, fast...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

... one of the few times you can get all three!
Been going there at least once a month or so for the last 6 years and have never been disappointed. Not a 5 start gourmet meal (Mexican? Really?), but a very good value for the money.

“Decent Mexican food served quickly..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

If you are looking for a decent Mexican restaurant for a quick meal ,this place should hit the spot.
We stop in every other month or so since it has opened and the food is always consistent and quickly prepared.
Service can be hit or miss though.
My favorite is the Camarones a la Mexicana and the better half's favorite is the fried ice cream.
The salsa here is probably my favorite of any area restaurants.

Do be sure you check your to-go orders before leaving as both times that I have called in to go orders 1 item is always missing ;o
