Service was quick although it was packed. Lots of menu selections. Prices were really competitive and food was good. Had mesquite salmon salad and just right on the portion. Good experience.

We have visited Jose Tejas for years because of the great and flavorful food. My favorite, blakened Swordfish, is hard to find somewhere else. Will recommend to anyone looking for a great cilantro and lime flavor, it will offset the long wait.

Seemingly authentic Mexican menu including all typical dishes. We sampled Fajitas, quesadillas, chips and salsa all of which were very good. Full bar including a large variety of Mexican beers and a huge parking lot.
