The menu here is a step ahead of most Mexican restaurants. The food is very good. The waitstaff is prompt and knowledgeable. And parking is plentiful.

My friends & I love Jose Peppers for a relaxing, reasonably-priced Girls' Night Out! The queso dip is delicious as well as all their entrees and yummy margaritas. The service is great and wait-times nominal.

A local place that we don't always go to. It had been a while but it was as good a remembered. Chips were nice an light. Queso was free and great. Shrimp tacos and steak enchiladas was tasty. Probably my only complain was that the steak in the enchiladas were a bit chewy/tough/grisly than they should have been. Kids hamburger... More

Taco Salad was good; service average. My tab came to $12 and change; paid with a $20. Waitress came back with $6 said she didn't have any change and rounded up the bill. So I guess the servers here tip themselves.

Enjoyed out dinner, but more so that we didn't feel rushed to eat and leave. We told the waitress our daughter was at a 3 hour practice and we were killing time. She offered to wait a bit to put our order in. We ate chips and salsa and watch the Royals game for a bit before our food came.... More

Five family members came to discuss issues. Food and drinks were good. We probably stayed too long. Waiter and manager allowed us to stay for a while longer. Good service. Food was delicious.

The food is wonderful as usually but the wait was horrible. Never sit in the bar where the bar ender is also the phone order taker- and your waiter. He was such a nice guy but could not take care of a table. Took over hour and half for lunch.

Always good food and pleasant service. We love to sit on the patio at the Mission location. Their chips and salsa are the best!

For 10 years We used to eat at Jose's 2-3 times a week. Haven't been there in 9 months. Quality of food has significantly gone down along with the service. Called and shared concerns, they asked for another chance and gave me a gift card. Service was worse than ever. So very disappointed!!
