Great place for tex-mex! Love the atmosphere and the country music. Nothing fancy....just a good mex menu. My family loves to start with the hot chips and salsa. And the prices are so affordable!

There's a wait at Jose Tejas every day of the week and with good reason. The food is very tasty and the prices are reasonable. The beef fajitas are a personal favorite. The drinks are large and the don't skimp on the alcohol. Don't be put off by the wait. It's worth it.

Hey it may be a Pappasito's knockoff. But when Pappasitos is nowhere in sight, this will do just fine.

The wait for a Tuesday night was 30 minutes. Ridiculous! But that just shows what all the hubbub is about. Was a good refreshing change up from all the other restaurants in the area. Texmex FTW!

Don't let the title throw you off. We went here for lunch for my daughter's birthday and had a great meal. The food was very good and the wait was very short. The four of us each had a different item and all of us were very pleased. My blackened chicken entree was full of taste and was a great bargain! In fact the whole menu was very reasonably priced. The place was a little loud when trying to talk to my wife across the table but not bad enough to really complain. In fact, the only real complaint was that they don't serve dessert. We just wanted a little slice of cake for my daughter's birthday but it was a no-go. Other than that it was a nice dining experience. Would surely go again, it's worth the trip!
