You will love the experience in this neat little place. Authentic Mexican food cooked by the owner. This is a small place in a small town so if it is busy, don't expect quick service. Instead, relax and enjoy the slower pace, interesting people, and...More

Okay, it's not like I'm a world traveler or anything, but La Casa de Jose is easily my favorite Mexican restaurant anywhere. I have driven from Knoxville, TN, to eat here. Wife and son agree. Excellent food. Excellent portion sizes. Good service. We've tried many...More

My wife and I took a lunch break and ate at Jose's. The salsa is our absolutely favorite and the chips are clearly hand-made. We both got the chicken flautas and they were fantastic. Two lunches for less than $12 - can't beat it!

Outstanding Mexican restaurant. The owner is a great chef and treats you like family. My wife and I ate there twice in two days. My daughter will be attending Asbury and we intend to eat there every time we visit her.

Service was friendly, the place clean and festively decorated. The lunch size margarita was only $1.99 and really hit the spot!! Our food arrived quickly and was DELICIOUS! The chicken in my taco salad was basically a large breast piece, and the beef in my...More

The owner, Jose, is involved in every aspect of his restaurant. I have never been there when he was not present. Usually he takes our order himself. Therefore, the food is always freshly cooked. Sometimes this means waiting a while if there are a lot...More
