They change the menu frequently so you can try some unusual Mexican dishes. Some are good healthy choices.

We have been to this restaurant a few times and our experience remains inconsistent so far. Today, we walked in to find none to attend to us and had to go looking for someone in the restaurant who could take our orders. The waiting staff did not know the correct password. When asked again, they got themselves excused by blaming... More

Food was good and plenty of it. Service was excellent. But the best of all was the ultimate margarita. You could taste the quality of the cocktail.

I get something different every time because they take the time to explain what I am getting. The guacamole is the best. Love it!

Family of 15 went for dinner, this is the second time in a year we've been to this restaurant, both times in large groups. Walking in at 9:30pm (after shopping) and we're seated ... but then told the kitchen closes shortly and we have to hurry up and order (happened both times - annoying!). The staff are friendly, but as... More

I would say we are regulars at San Jose but the last few times the service and the food quality have been poor. We have to ask for refills and for napkins and for this and that. The food has been arriving cold and even old tasting. Not sure what is going on but will only give San Jose one... More

The wait staff as per previous reviews could use some customer service training-but the night I went they were not rude-in fact the one guy who was trying his hand at bartending and failed-went out of his way to attempt to make a second cocktail-their bartender was not on duty that night. Both attempts were thoughtful but I couldn't finish... More

This is really good Mexican Food, but the service is really poor, they bring you tea and food, but now 2 times in a row, I could not get tea refills, they just walk by like they don'e even see your glass empty and heaven forbid, if you stop another person and ask them for tea, I have actually gotten...
