The waiter and host were friendly, but almost everything else was a big disappointment. We ate Mexican food, and the chips were hard (not light and flaky) and the salsa lacked flavor. We ordered meals with green sauce, but they were served with red sauce....More

I eat at Café Jose about once a week. Everything is great, but I'm a huge fan of the cheeseburger and the tuna melt. Comfy, casual atmosphere with fast, friendly service. Breakfast is served all day. Portion size is great.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn down the road and wanted a quick casual meal. A staff member at the hotel recommended this place as a casual diner. The service was very good, and the food came out amazingly fast. We would go back.

I really didn't pay attention to that because we don't have any small children and we didn't have any with us. Perhaps you can check out their menu, if it's online, to see if they have a children's menu.

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
