The prices are great but the food and service are just average. There was no wait which was really nice and it is family friendly.

We chose this place because one of the people in our group, who lives in Sedona, said it was good. It was a Sunday so it was a little busy but we were seated right away. Four of the people ordered mexican dishes, one child ordered mac and cheese and I ordered a BLT. My sandwich was good. The french... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy the food at our restaurant. Especially, when a local resident brags about us and then we let you down, it is very embarrassing and disappointing to us. We take great pride in trying to please our customers. You are correct in the perception that our Mexican food is not very spicy and is... More

Wonderful food at a great price. Probably why it is a local hangout. Nothing super special to look at and carpet is worn, but the food is great and the service is better. Huevo Rancheros is a favorite for breakfast and the Salmon Caesar Salad is wonderful for dinner. And don't forget their pasta and Mexican dishes. They rock!

Our server, Casey, did a fine job of taking care of us. Portions were large. The food was good. The menu is huge with lots of choices. Casey knew the menu very well and worked hard to make sure the kitchen followed instructions.

Very nice cafe, very well maintained with nice decor. The service was very good and the waiter explained several dishes to us. I had a chimichanga and it was very good. The wife liked her taco salad as well. Large portions well prepared.

The name does not denote breakfast, but don't let it fool you. It is a family restaurant that was recommended to us.

I keep trying this local shop trying to see what other locals like about it. To me the place looks un kept and place is in need of a remodel. The food is below average.

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
