Went on a Saturday night around 7:30. They said the wait was 30-40 minutes and it was! Had great Margarita's at bar. Were given salsa and nice warm chips. Dinner was average. Waiter very pleasant.

I normally don't eat at chain restaurants because they don't meet my expectations and I prefer to eat at a local mom/pop restaurant. Am I a chain snob? My co-workers had been here a few times since they work in the area and wanted to visit again. I must say that I had a very impressive experience. We visited during... More

First I have to say this is not my type of food but it was my daughters birthday and she wanted to go. My daughter and husband had chicken fajitas which they both said were very good and there was so much my daughter got to take home enough for another meal. I found only one thing on the menu...

They have great fajitas wether your a kid or an adult. They make fresh baked tortilla chips with salsa. For the quality of the food they are very cheap. All the waitresses and waiters are very on task and so is their chiefs. They are consistent most of the time their food just gets better and better each time you... More

Big drinks, large portions, very reasonable prices. And oh yeah, the food was fresh and terrific! Very fun and festive atmosphere. This is a big restaurant, but if you go during peak times, be prepared to wait up to an hour at least. Unfortunately they don't take reservations. I brought 9 people celebrating a birthday and it was very stressful... More

You will never leave Jose Tejas hungry. They have a good variety of Tex/Mex, Cajun, and Creole food. The place gets very busy early, and you may have to wait for a table, but they turn over the tables pretty quickly, and they have a lively bar. You can get a good Margarita (Frozen or traditional) or Mexican beer while... More

Dined here with a bunch of girlfriends for dinner and loved everything about it. Great margaritas fresh and authentic food. I had the chicken fajitas really recommend. Chips and salsa are brought out to the table, great to just snack on while waiting for your food. They do not rush you and the restaurant is quite large. Will be back... More

Had lunch here with my husband. We've been here a million times and still come back for more, especially when we have a craving for beef fajitas. We always share one order and it's just the right amount for both of us. We've had almost all of the items on the menu, and I don't think we've ever had anything... More

I have come here over the years with my kids and family. My kids are older now so I came here tonight with a friend and I realized how much I missed this place. The food is always fresh and yummy no matter what you get. I ordered swordfish tacos and they had a fresh mango salsa with grilled avocado... More
