El San Jose had the strongest margaritas in Tuscarawas County hands down!! We enjoy going here for some margaritas and tacos. I really enjoy the mini taco salad with the grilled chicken! You can't beat their grilled chicken!! I highly recommend El San's!!

The food we had is what you expect from a Mexican restaurant. Service was good. Decor is that of a typical Mexican restaurant. No complaints from us.

I realize most people haven't had authentic Mexican food, so when they go to these "Mexican" restaurants they think they're getting Mexican food this is Tex-Mex the food is really good but let's not call it Mexican it's close but not real authentic. Having said...More
