This restaurant experience was so poor, I may never eat Mexican again. This place happened to be across the street from our hotel. There were lots of restaurants to choose from, but we all agreed that Mexican food sounded the best. This was a mistake of monumental proportion. The place reaked a horrible odor -- a cross between BO and decomposition. The waiter was abrupt and rude. But the worst was the quality of the food. We all had something different, and each one of our dishes was dripping in grease -- it was absolutely disgusting. I could not eat more that a couple of bites. You could tip my plate and collect about 4 tablespoons of grease and I had chicken! It had an unusual aftertaste that is disturbing to recollect. The prices are extremely cheap, and you definitely get what you pay for at this place. Avoid like the plague!

We were scouting out hotels to spend the night after a long day of driving on the ever dreadful I-95. We thought we were stuck with one of the chains when we spotted this place in a strip mall right near the interstate. It's just a few doors down from the Lowes Supermarket. Since we are big fans of Mexican food, we decided to check it out. Great food from a large menu, large portions, inexpensive, good salsa and chips to start, a nice selection of drinks, and excellent service. Mexican music plays softly in the background. It could not have been more relaxing and laid back. Definitely, forego the usual chain restaurants and eat here. Two thumbs way up!!

San Jose is right off the highway and a few blocks from several hotels at Exit 20, as well as a couple miles from Exit 22. Excellent food at very reasonable prices. Service is excellent. The fried ice cream is to die for. It's definitely worth a stop.

Good selection, friendly service, generous proportions, reasonable price! What more can you ask for. Nice atmosphere with a real Mexican feel. Always stop here on my back north from Florida. Highly recommend. Restaurant is in easily accessible location right off I95 but is set back from road and not highly visible.

Solid Mexican! Good variety, service and atmosphere. We were there on a busy Friday night and they handled the large group of 15 just as well as they did the two of us. I had an assorted platter and everything was good, just too much to eat. And very reasonable prices. Two meals, two large beers for $22.42!
