Jose's Mexican Restaurant is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 705.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This restaurant was tiny yet intimate. I ordered the steak and shrimp fajita. The steak was a bit burnt in the pan and tasted a little dried out and they only gave me about 4 little shrimps which were also overcooked. I got about a fourth cup of rice and when I asked for a little more, I was charged an extra 1.50. At the end of our meal we noticed that they added an 18% tip to the check total before the certificate discount therefore, I left nothing additional when typically I would have left a 20-22% tip. I'd return because I need to try that extra large margarita I saw on the table across from mine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This trip to Jose's was to celebrate my friends 58th birthday. Although we arrived relatively early at 5pm on a Friday, and the restaurant was practically empty, we were rushed through our meal. Our total time there was approximately 25mins. Overall the food was bland and overpriced. The restaurant has 3 different areas to eat. Not having a preference we were brought to a table on the second floor. In a way, we should be thankful that Jose's wait staff rushed us through our meal because a party arrived with about 5 adults and 8 children under the age of 6. Joes's staff is not responsible for kids with lots of extra energy to spare, but with an empty restaurant, it would have been nice not to be seated next kids running around and being very loud.
