The food is ok but there seem to be far too many tables/chaos/people in the space. Good chips -taste home made. Portions seem to have gotten smaller. Prefer Casa Maya in Gillette.

There are several good Mexican food spots within a two square mile area, this is one of them. It is a gaily decorated spot in the back of a small shopping center that has a Indian, Italian and Bagel/Deli restaurant as well. Jose's serves very authentic Mexican food that is always delicious with a large variety of menu choices at... More

Went there on a Saturday night for sober with my wife. She had the steak fajita and I had the Carnitas. Both were very week prepared. The Carnitas was moist and flavorful. The fajitas which had peppers and onions which were actually cooked not raw like you have at Mexican chain restaurants. The steak was filet mignon, very tender and... More

We eat at Jose's two to three times a month, a great local favorite. An authentic Mexican restaurant with very tasty food. And a BYOB .

Worked from home and wanted to go out for lunch so I thought I would try it. They give you a lot of food, not really necessary for lunch. Their chips are a bit on the stale side, but their guacamole is good, as well their salsa. I had garlic shrimp and it was OK, nothing special. In a pinch... More

Been coming here for years. Excellent Mexican food with friendly and attentive service. The enchiladas, burritos and fajitas are fantastic.

Although this is a small restaurant tucked at the back of a small complex, it is a "gem". My husband and I eat there at least once a month. The staff knows us and always have a smile. The food is delicious and everyone we have brought with us loves the place.

We were two couples who ate there on a Friday night. Fast, excellent service. Large menu. Reasonably priced and since it is BYOB, it is a good value for dinner. Very tasty food with good sized portions. Would definitely return

Been going to Jose's in Warren for many years. Never had a bad meal at Jose's - and they have the best carnitas around. Also recommend the chicken quesadilla. Soups - gazpacho,chicken and black bean are all good. Service is always good and they keep my water glass filled, which makes me happy. If in the area, I highly recommend... More

We went there this past Wednesday night for a quick dinner. Brought a few bottles of beer and had a great meal. Took home plenty for lunch another day. We've been there before and we'll be heading back the next time we're looking for good Mexican.
