“We'll be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Best Mexican food in Orangeburg by far. We have been to San Jose a number of times. From simple enchiladas and burritos to carnitas and tacos de lengua, my wife and I have always enjoyed eating here. The prices are fair and the staff has always been friendly.
I do agree with an earlier post that the beer could be colder.

“They tried to rip us off on the bill”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

We were charged for items we did not order or receive. The atmosphere is chaotic. I have never been back.

Several girlfriends and I get together here every few months to celebrate each of our birthdays. We enjoy talking, meeting new friends, eatting and the margarita's here are one of a kind and the best anywhere around!

“Not the same anymore”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

I've been going to this restaurant for the past couple of years and the food was great, but to tell the truth, San Jose is not what it used to be... The food is now awful, tasteless and greasy. Maybe a new cook? I don't know, but I know I won't be going back out there. I'll stick to Rosalias...
