Four of us walked into Thomi's - the place was in total chaos. We were left standing around, unattended and unacknowledged. We finally got tired of standing, so we cleaned off a table so we could sit. We hunted down some menus ...... we could never catch the attention of the staff, so we finally left.

Not wanting to get back into the car, we walked over to Jose's. We'd been there before, and although the food is not exceptional, it is tasty enough. What makes a difference - their service.

Within a few seconds of entereing, we were greeted and seated. The server quickly brought water, salsa/chips and menus. Since we weren't too hungry, by pairs, we decided to split a meal. Our server more than happily obliged, provided additional plates and did not make a big stink about extra charges for extra plates or for sharing.

The food was good enough, with good flavor and we left adequately filled (instead of over-stuffed !) Splitting a dish between two people was just enough for a satisfying meal for each.

Overall - Jose's gets kudos for great customer service ! and pretty decent food ..... splitting the meal resulted in a pretty fair price for the four of us ..... otherwise, I think it's a bit pricey, although there really is enough food to provide an entire second meal ! So, maybe it really isn't that expensive ....... on a cost per meal basis ;-)

Really fresh really good Mexican food - not the run of the mill stuff! Had margaritas that were made with white wine - we thought "Oh yeah, how good could those possibly be?" They were fantastic - a real treat that would be perfect on a hot summer day - I want the recipe!!!
