Excellent menu with lots of great options! Great service with knowledgeable servers. If you want to venture out and try something new, this is the place. Our server described my menu choice to a tee and I was not disappointed. Great food with generous portions!

This was my first trip to San Jose Restaurant, but certainly not the last. I went with a friend and we shared each others' dinners. I started with a $2 margarita, then we shared seafood chimichangas and a chicken with spinach and bacon dish. Both were luscious, and we both had enough to take some home. Our waiter was friendly...

This restaurant is in a small strip of stores next to Lowes foods. The food is amazing, the service is first rate and their drinks are made like you would make them at home. You must visit you'll come back again and again

Charming little place. Happened on this spot after shopping. The food was reasonably priced, portion size big and the atmosphere friendly. Home made chips n salsa along with many menu items to choose from. Thumbs up!

Tucked away in the Lowe's Food shopping center on Main Street we found this hidden gem. Excellent food at a reasonable price. Even the Mexican beer on tap was a bargain. Will return and even make a special trip. Better than either of the two choices for Mexican in Cherry Grove Beach.

We have never had a bad meal here, delicious Mexican food, you have to try the Sangria and some of the best "wings" around. We have taken family and friends here and no one has been disappointed.

The food is always good and the drinks are always more than tasty. I typically get a taco salad, but my friends and family are a little more adventurous. Pleasant atmosphere, great service and overall experience.
