My family loves to eat at Jose Peppers. The staff is friendly and the service is great. The wait on our food is usually not too long. The chips and salsa are amazing! Sometimes we eat a bit too much of the chips and salsa.

I wish this Joses would pay just a little more attention to the small stuff. The food was good the service was only fair. I guess being a single I don't warrant attention.
