If you just want a large marguerite or cold beer with typical Mexican appetizers, it's probably good enough. Just know it is very average, chain type meals. Felt like my dinner was a bowl of slop. No flavors stood out. I left no longer hungry but not satisfied.

Great dinner, family loved the home made guacamole made right at your table. Tacos were really good too but were smaller than expected and slightly oily. Love the chips and salsa before dinner so much we went threw 3 bowls. I attached two pictures, one of the Chicken Chorizo Bacon Taco's (delicious) I had and my son's kids noodles and... More

Jose's is a bit hard to get to at the moment but it's worth it when you get there. The tableside guacamole is a fun experience and a great start to the meal (though it could've used a touch more salt and lime). I had a vanilla margarita that was absolutely fantastic. For my entree I had the Juan Won... More

GREAT margaritas. Nice menu, very nice menu for margaritas. Tableside prepared guacamole is outstanding. Salas are interesting and tasty. Capable of hosting larger groups. Ample parking. Easy on and off from I43. Rustic interior. Large bar area, and periodically have outside live music. Reliable food quality and quantity. Uneven server quality. Good value.

Enjoyed a good dinner with excellent service. Would return again. The traveling serving cart featuring a avacado appetizer is cool. Give it a try.

The ambience is very nice here. Friendly waiter who gave us some ideas on what taco dishes were popular. We tried two different kinds and they were both excellent. The homemade salsa was fantastic. The chipotle queso was really good. And, the house margarita topped off the dinner. I will definitely eat here again.
