“Locally owned Mexican”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Great locally owned Mexican fare. Diverse menu with something for everyone. Don't try to get in and out in a hurry, though, because some of these dishes take time to prepare. Great place to meet after work to eat, drink, and unwind.

“Okay place for Tex-Mex”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Jose's is good, but the salsa is kind of bland. The Chicken Enchiladas Verde is excellent though, and the service is always top notch.

“It all works together nicely”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

I am a big fan of Mexican food. While I can't claim this was the best I have ever had it was very good. The ambiance was nice and relaxing. No loud music, which drives me crazy. Watching the waiters interact with the customers I could tell they have become part of the community and have a loyal customer base which says a lot for them. All in all, I will probably be back next time I come to Montgomery.

“Best Mexican Place in Prattville/Montgomery.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I have been here several times and will continue to go back. Jose' is the reason this place is successful. He is a very colorful character. He takes great care of all of his customers. You feel like you are a VIP when you go. This is a local, family business and I HIGHLY recommend going. Jose' also does a lot for the local community and responded to the tornado victims in 2010. Ask for his special guacamole. Great place for eating alone to eating with a large group. Try it!
