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!!

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.
