I always enjoy eating the food at San Jose. One of the main dishes I usually order is the cheese enchiladas, which are very delicious. They are always wonderfully cooked. The sauce used for the cheese enchiladas is superb. Another Mexican cuisine I enjoy is the mushroom quesadillas. The herbs and spices used to create this dish bring out the... More

Loved the cheese dip with beans on the bottom. And their tea is awesome. The booths were almost too tight, but we managed.

Echoing the review dated March 31, service has badly gone south at this restaurant, once know for top-shelf service. We have eaten here at least twice a month since the doors opened. It is evident that most of the wait staff no longer cares about delivering exceptional service: takes a ridiculously long time to place a drink order, glass sits... More

Visited the restaurant as I am new to the area. Wait staff was friendly and efficient in seating us and bringing drinks, chips, and salsa. The meals we ordered were totally forgetful. The guacamole salad was nonexistent. A few shreds of iceberg lettuce and the smallest dollop of guacamole I have ever seen. We were hungry after moving all day,... More

The service was good, but slow-we were not in a hurry though. The sweet tea is way way sweet in a overtly diabetic crisis way. It is good in a half and half mix. The food is good, the cheese is so tasty. The fajitas are good: shrimp and scallop. Scallops were a little overlooked and chewy. The salsa is... More

The one and only time my husband and I went to this restaurant was not a pleasant experience. We got a table fairly quick and after that, we had to wait to get a drink order in...about 10-15 minutes. Once the drink order was placed, the waiter took our food order, we never received our drinks until the food arrived... More

I love Mexican and eat it once a week. My wife and I both enjoy San Jose. Food is alway constantly good. Can't go wrong with the Specialty tacos.

We have had to wait long periods to get service after being seated on several occasions. Do not plan on going back. Food is fair; not worth the long waiting.
