First Raul our waiter was the best. He has the greatest personality and made us feel welcome the minute we sat down. He makes a mean Long Island Ice Tea. My hubby does not like a lot of sweet and sour and Raul made it perfectly. Food was really good. Fajitas portions were good size. Raul advised us to put... More

I used to work in the Lumberton area in 1999-2001 and ate here on a regular basis. Now 15 years later I've returned and eaten here twice, one month apart. The service is great, the food well above average. They do well with vegetables, squash/zucchini tomatoes, onions, spinach, mushrooms. Those meat dishes stand out to me. Both of my recent... More

We were driving back from Topsail Beach to our next stop in Charlotte and found ourselves particularly hungry for some Mexican food. With Siri's help, we found this gem in Lumberton. I've never been to a Mexican restaurant with such a diverse menu of options. The service was fast and every staff member I encountered was extremely friendly. The food... More

San Jose Mexican Restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff. The food was excellent. We were a party of 6 and no one had a bad thing to say about the food. The service was awesome!! I would highly recommend.

While the salsa was very bland, the tacos al pastor were tasty. The staff was very friendly and attentive, and provided a friendly respite during a long drive down the East coast.

This restaurant is charming inside and the food was delicious. We had their beef, chicken and chorizo fajitas and it was definitely one of the best we've had. This restaurant is reasonably priced too!

I used to live in south Texas so I know authentic Mexican and Mexican-American (Tex-mex) cuisine, and this place is fair at best. However if you are consulting this for Lumberton it is good for a small town. it is not the best in town. For authentic Mexican food including a wide range of Mexican beer, but no mixed drinks,...

The clerk at our hotel told us that San Jose was a great place for a margarita and since it was directly across the street, it was an easy walk . As it was New Year's Eve, we decided to get one. Although the bar was closed, we were given a table, served chips and salsa, and had a delicious... More
