Best crawfish ettouffee that I've had outside of New Orleans. Other food was good, too. A little salty, but good.

I've been going to Jose Tejas for many years, and never bothered to write a TripAdvisor review. This place is always mobbed, and for good reason. For starters (and unlike many other competitors in the Mexican cuisine area), they know how to make a margarita. Some places serve you a glass of fruit juice and dare you to ID any alcohol in it. Not Jose Tejas. Their margaritas are outstanding and definitely have the kick that they should. And they are affordable! Their complimentary salsa and chips are excellent; the chips are often warm. You can always ask for more chips or salsa if you devour the first serving (which we often do).

My go-to entree is the Chimmichurri steak. It's around $12 and it is delicious. They offer two different sauces now; both are great. Fajitas are great, swordfish tacos are great (but spicy), and everything else we've ever eaten there is great.

The atmosphere is raucous and noisy (wood floors) so it is a great place to take young kids (nobody will hear them). Be prepared to wait if you get there after 5ish on a Friday or Saturday night - but it's so worth it.

We enjoy the fajitas here very much. Service is generally very good and special requests (well done, low salt,etc.) are never a problem. Nice for families,can be noisy at times. Friendly atmosphere always.

the melon margaritas are delicious and the food is pretty decent. Great place to hang out and watch the game. Make a reservation if you are going on the weekend or don't want to sit at the bar.
