I got chicken quesadilla and chicken fajita nachos to go. The order was ready within 5mins, and at that point I had a feeling this Mexican food wasn't going to be what I expected. The quesadilla was half cooked, the fajita chicken on nachos wasn't...More

Ordered the chicken and rice here. All that was on the plate (no lie), was white rice, some kind of chicken with no flavor (was not grilled), and melted mozzarella cheese on top. I was thinking Mexican or Spanish rice with some queso on top...More

We have eaten at Jose's over 50 times and have tried nearly everything on the menu. Believe it or not, Jose makes the best hamburger in Pearl. The wife loves the fried shrimp. The tamales are wonderful as well as the fajitas.

The chips and salsa were good, the rest was OK. I'm a bit spoiled, growing up in Southern California where we got real Mexican food. Not bad for the South, but I've had better.

Read a lot of good reviews about this place, but after eating ther it was nothing special. Food tasted like it came from a super market shelf. In fact, Ortega food productsfrom my market probably have more flavor.

We picked this place by driving by. We are from Texas and are used to cheddar cheese on our Mexican food, I'm not a fan of the white cheese used on everything in the east. I will have to say the salsa here is great,...More

Tried this restaurant for the first time. I was so disappointed. Most of my food had no flavor. Rice was very bland. The enchilada seemed like they took an old tortilla, stuffed it with meat and put cheese sauce on it. I could hardly cut...More

We love coming to Jose'state because it is so convenient for us. We like the small and inviting atmosphere. There are no big fountains everywhere and it's just very laid back and the employees are always so nice. We would always love to have Tripp...More
