Overall, food is very good at a good price. We love their Queso! Ambiance is good and service is good if you dine in. Good value for the price! Kids are happy with kids meals.

Love their sauce and chips. If you like it hot make sure to ask for their hotter sauce. We get the Jose Sampler a lot and have them split it for $1 more with beans and rice. Always fast and great service. Might have to wait for a table on a Friday or Saturday night. (Possibly) Worth the wait.

We were tired after a day of traveling, and this was in the parking lot of our hotel. There was many cars outside, which is a good sign. They had a large menu with a variety of items, there should be something for everyone. Our food was very fresh, and flavorful. The fajita meat was super tender with just the... More

This is my grandsons favorite place to eat. When we visit Shawnee we frequently eat here. The food is delicious and we usually get several different meals and share bites. It is busy so getting there early is a good idea if you have a group.

We have eaten at this JP's location for more than 10 years. Sadly, there has been a change in their quality of ingredients and portion size. It is now marginal at best.

There are tons of people that seem to love the place--it's a favorite of one of my family members. Personally though, I find the Mexican food here to be a bit bland. However, the servings are huge and the margaritas are decent.

My family likes Jose Peppers. This was our first visit to this location. Very nice and clean. We had 7 people in our party and we seated quickly. It gets very busy at peak times though. The espinaca dip is great. I like the Monteray Chicken burrito. I had a frozen margarita and it was not to sweet, which is... More
