Jose is one of the sweetest restaurant owners we know. The food is freshly made and delicious. Enjoyed authentic Mexican food made from family recipes. A great place!

Don't go to this place. For starters, the chips and salsa were awful. Chips stale, served on a dirty plastic basket with no liner. Salsa had no taste. The silverware, wrapped in a paper napkin, when opened have gross dried salsa all over the inside....More

Jose is a great guy, and serves great food. Not your typical cookie cutter Mexican restaurant. Items cooked fresh, unique offerings. I recommend the "Jose's Special" - excellent!

My wife and I took a lunch break and ate at Jose's. The salsa is our absolutely favorite and the chips are clearly hand-made. We both got the chicken flautas and they were fantastic. Two lunches for less than $12 - can't beat it!

Outstanding Mexican restaurant. The owner is a great chef and treats you like family. My wife and I ate there twice in two days. My daughter will be attending Asbury and we intend to eat there every time we visit her.
