White queso dip is amazing!! We enjoyed the fajita and taquito dinner, steak and mushroom quesadillas, and the enchilada dinner.

We visit Hot Springs every year and love Jose's. We eat their o. Every bisit. We usually get enchiladas. We really like their tomatillo salsa.

Felt a bit rushed by wait staff but overall it was good. The salsa could be a bit more chunky and spicy but was tasty mixed with the green sauce.

This is a review of the Jose's restaurant on Hwy 7 south (Central Ave). I stopped in here to dine shortly after the lunch rush. I was promptly greeted at the front door and seated in a booth. The restaurant appeared to be very clean and the decor was typical for a Mexican restaurant. The waitstaff was very friendly and... More

Ate lunch here the first day of my business trip. Had the lunch special, which was beef quesadilla. A little greasy but very tasty. good atmosphere and very busy at lunch hour. Make sure you plan ahead,

Just ate here while visiting Hot Springs. Awesome place. The decor is amazing, the food incredible and the service superb. Menu has many different options including dishes we've never seen before. The Dos Amigos was excellent. My husband had the fajitas (chicken and beef) and couldn't finish it. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The last time we visited Hot Springs we were a little disappointed in Jose's however this trip the food, drinks, service and atmosphere was spot on. The white queso never disappoints. The fajitas were outstanding. I had a shrimp dish and it was amazing. Great night!

I recently was in Hot Springs for an educational conference. Our group headed to Jose's Mexican Grill for lunch! They offered many lunch specials and the food was amazing! The food was well prepared and the portions were large! The waitress was happy to allow us to modify our orders-add sour cream, don't add the peppers, etc. Each dish was... More
