“Genuine Mexican, fast and hot.”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

A happy atmosphere as you enter helps start the meal off right. The building is a converted older store, but plenty of light, a few outdoor tables and a home style menu make it a wonderful stop for real Mexican. Had lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed the food, the staff the time together and made later appointments without any anxiety. Go!

“First timer here”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Always looking for a good Mexican restaurant finally found one, Good food, good service and very reasonable prices. Fresh salsa, loved it. The refried beans were the best i ever had, not mushy at all. Would go back tonight if my husband said ok. Can not wait to try more things. Fried plantain for one and then make my way thru the menu. They have something for everyone.

“Yummy Mex Food!”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

This no frills BYOB Mexican place has great food at reasonable prices. It's a no frills place with a few tables. We got take out as were staying at a nearby inn. If you like Mexican - this is a great choice. Salsa/Pico was solid good; chips were ok.

“Mexican Food at Its Best”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Having been to the Spring Lake area several times over the past 4 years, my wife and I have never been disappointed by the meals prepared for us at Jose's. Portions are very generous, especially for the price. Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of the restaurant as the food can't be beat.

“Never a bad meal!!!!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We have gone to Jose's as long as they have been here. It is a small place and if you get there during the busy times, you may have a wait but...WAIT! It is fresh, delicious and you get plenty of food. Everything is made to order and they accommodate any changes you may have. We have had several different meals, from their fajitas to the chile relleno to the taco salad - all amazing and this is true mexican food. Not fancy, but who cares, it's great. They give you homemade Salsa and chips that are delicious. BYOB but they are all very accommodating when you do, never a problem. If you haven't tried Jose's - please do!!!
