What a fantastic evening my wife and I had! The skirt steak with the secret sauce (I forgot the name… I remember the word Bowie in the dish name) was the best meal I’ve had a restaurant ever. It came with a side of shoestring fries that were great (better than regular fries that are usually “just there”) and a grilled avocado with mango salsa on top. Amelia, our server, was *excellent*, and her recommendation to get the secret sauce on the side was wonderful advice. Jose Tejas never disappoints, and this time it was above and beyond!

Hyped place, that’s all. I lived in New Jersey for 4 years and used to be a big fan of this, since I am visiting Jersey after 2 years, I wanted to go here with my wife to have her try their food. Honestly I now realize difference between Mexican food here and in California, can’t compare. The food is okayish, it’s like you are eating cheese, beans and rice, not much for vegetarians to try out. Also, the prices have gone up and it’s no longer a place with $ sign but rather $$, not coming back.

Okay, if you are in the mood for TexMex, this is definitely the place to go! FAIR WARNING: the wait time is sometimes long, depending on the time you get there (15-40 min.).That said, I had the Salmon tacos and they were delicious. The salmon was well cooked and the mango salsa added a refreshing taste to the meal. My friends ordered the steak with the tejas rice and they absolutely loved it. The beans with cheese were also tasty and the size of the meals were great for the price. For those of us who love Margheritas and Sangria, this place has a variety of options. I would definitely recommend it for friends and family.

If I could give this place 10 stars , I would.We came in on a Monday afternoon and the place was packed for a reason.Everything we ordered had so much flavor. There was nothing we did not like. You get a lot for your buck.Our customer service was top notch as well.

Popular spot for lunch and dinner. Was there when they opened today and there were 15 people already waiting to get in. The free salsa and fresh baked chips are excellent! Today I had Chicken Tejas and fries. Delicious. Sat at the bar and even busy, service was good. Definitely recommend trying this place.

The drinks are ok, though the beer selection is minimal. The service is good and the place is noisy but nice.When I sat in the chair, there was a nice French fry that stained my pants…The food is terrible. Overcooked salmon and skirt steak, fries were old and chewy. The “gravy” on the carne asada (skirt steak) was greasy, salty and hardly edible.The waiter was very nice, though.I would come here for drinks only, after inspecting the chairs.

I’ve been going to Jose’s almost my entire life and I have never once had a bad time there. Everyone who works there is always friendly and I love the ambiance. The food is always delicious, I am still trying to find a salsa that I like as much as theirs. Their pastelitos with chimi verde sauce is a must get; the sauce is so fresh and flavorful! I also love their gumbo, jambalaya, and salads. I’ve never had a bad meal here and I highly recommend visiting if you never have…and going back if you’ve been here before!

This place used to be awesome. But the last few times experience was just an average. We wouldn’t mind before waiting for a table for an hour just because of awesome food and experience.However now that each time we went we felt like we were rushed to eat and leave our table for the next guest. The menu has been shortened to only few dishes. The drinks used to great but now its just pick one out of three, which are not that great no more. Feels like they have pre prepped the food. All the apps and food came to our table at the same time. The server didn’t even bother to ask for refills but was quick to bring our Cheque. Service was fast but no one wants appetizers and food at same time. We gave few tries but not sure I can give them more chances.We tried Blackened Salmon and Chicken Bandera. Both the dishes were ok. Blackened Chicken was super salted.
