We consider ourselves Mexican food snobs. 😄 We've been to Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and bar NONE, this is the best Mexican food for your dollar. We've lived here for 23 years and hubby was born and raised here. There are 2 locations and we always go to the Malvern Ave. location. The Central Avenue location is managed differently... More

We had terrific, attentive service but the fajitas were cold. Imagine cold fajitas! The tortilla soup, while tasty, was barely above room temp. Our waitress was terrific, maintaining a great attitude throughout. She wanted to make everything right, but had no time for a return of the order, Who ever heard of cold fajitas?

This has been our "go to" place for top notch Mexican food for years but after today we won't go back. I do not know if this place is under new management or not, but this wasn't the same Jose's that we have come to love. Service was off. Got our cheese dip right away but had to wait several... More

Jose's serves whole beans if you wish. Most Hot Springs Mexican places serve only refried beans. The place has a large menu including a la carte items.
