Went here with the boss who's been coming for over 30 years! It's a great little Mexican Food Restaurant - authentic and original. I had the Carne Asada - very tender, thicker than usual, huge on flavor. Their house Jalapeno Tequila - very spicy - made a wonderful margarita!!! Parking is a little crowded, restaurant decor is eclectic, service was... More

The food here is delicious and affordable. My favorite is the shredded beef chimichanga plate with rice and beans. Yummy!

I've been a couple times with family. The prices, portion sizes, and value for money are all very good. This most recent visit I strayed from my normal chicken dishes and got a large plate of pork enchiladas. They were marvelous. The service was good but our server was not the kindest to our party - perhaps because she was... More

Six of us all ordered different dinners. We taste tested each other's meals. We all agreed everything was good. There were four different flavors of margaritas between us, all were blended. They too were very good, believe me they are not watered down. I only had one. Overall nice atmosphere, great service, good food and drinks. Best of all adorable.

We've been coming to Chez Jose since it opened. We started going at their original location on NE Broadway. We've eaten almost every offering on the menu and it's all very good. It's not your typical Mexican restaurant in which everything is slathered in cheese and swimming in refried beans. The food is fresh and healthy. They have a great... More

My family ordered the artichoke heart tamales and liked them. My food was fine too. We stopped by after a tour of Lewis and Clark and will be back.

Reliably serving Tex-Mex food for over 20 years to loyal neighborhood patrons. Never had a bad meal here; takeout always good (and accurate). Busy ALWAYS but fast service - don't forget it's also open for lunch. High trafic restaurant that doesn't disappoint. Bonus - next door is a great grocery store in same parking lot so you can kill two... More

We've been going here for years, and it is consistently a wonderful, family friendly Mexican restaurant with absolutely delicious food. The chicken and rice soup is amazing, along with everything else on the menu. Always busy on weekends, great place for young families with children. We often call ahead for take out.

A large group of us met here for a special occasion lunch. Just to the left of the entrance was a separate open area that easily accommodated all of us. Upon arrival, our server took our drink orders while we mingled. I ordered the blood orange margarita. It was a good combination of sweet and tart. Generous serving of chips... More

We took friends, one of whom is gluten-intolerant, here for dinner a couple of weeks ago and the restaurant had various foods and a delicious salsa that he was able to eat without any problems. We had not been back here for a number of years partly because it was hard to get into on a weekend night, and this... More
