We have tried nearly all of the Tex-Mex restaurants in our area, and there are many of them. Jose's has been our favorite for at least 15 years. It was a sad day when Jose passed away about a year ago. But, the restaurant continues operations just as before with no sign of drop in quality and service. My wife... More

This is the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten. Do not go here. Its not good. I had chicken enchiladas. They were literally 2 small corn tortillas with shredded chicken inside with cheese and red sauce on the top. The kicker is there is absolutely no seasoning to the chicken. It was like they just took shredded chicken, rolled... More

We lived in B/CS for forty years before retiring and moving on. The one thing we miss is the good Tex-Mex food from Jose's. Maybe you can get Mexican food all over the world, but it just isn't Tex-Mex, and it certainly isn't Jose's. We've never found anything to equal it, and it's always the highlight of a return visit...

I have eaten at Jose's for 36 years! It is delicious Mexican food and always consistent service. My favorites are the guacamole, enchilada dinner & sopapillas! We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at Jose's & I learned to drive driving out to the house on hwy 30 years ago!

Seems to fly under the radar, not much advertising. However, it has been a family-owned restaurant here for a very long time - they know what they are doing. It is clean, the food tastes fresh, I have never felt like I am getting some reheated frozen puck of sides like I obviously once received at a chain (still frozen).... More

Jose's offered a great selectionof Mexican foods and great service. We visited on a Thursday evening and the restaurant was not busy. The service was fast and pleasant. The food we ordered was served quickly and was very tasty. I would gladly visit Jose's again if I find myself back in College Station/Bryan, Texas.

This restaurant is locally owned and it shows in everything they do. The menu offers a great deal of variety with just enough American dishes to keep most people happy and I've yet to hear anyone say anything but good things about their choice. Our drink glasses never get close to being half full and the chips and salsa are... More

Looking for a non-chain restaurant and decided to try it. The food was great and the margaritas (on the rocks) will sneak up on you. Definitely worth a visit!

This is our go to Mexican food Restaurant in Bryan. We love their cheese enchiladas and chips and sausa. The food is always fresh tasting. Don't miss dessert, their flan is fantastic!

I've tried all the Mexican food restaurants in the B-CS metroplex over the past 17 years, and we consistently come back to Jose's. Why? Consistency and selection. Their menu is a bit different from others because their recipes feature Northern Mexico cuisine. There is a lot of food for the price, and it's good quality. Jose died in the past... More
