Excellent home cooked ( family owned) Mexican food! It's been a favorite of our office for years! Many choices to consider. Tacos are our number one favorite!

I ,like the rest of Arlington, remember eating Casa Jose's breakfast tacos every weekend. I have wonderful memories of when my grandpa would visit from the valley and all he wanted to eat was Casa Jose's caldo. So I'm not sure why it took me so long to try the new version that is Daddy Buelo's. We dined on a... More

Originally Casa Jose where we went 30 years ago. Now, stil a classic great solid real Tex Mex. Recommendations: Chorizo and eggs, steak fajita tacos, and any of their custom tacos.

This is a re-start of an Arlington legend formerly Casa Jose Cafe. Very good Tex-Mex food. I have been for breakfast several times recently and have enjoyed each dish; breakfast tacos, migas, huevos rancheros. Excellent salsa and San Antonio style tortillas. Nothing fancy about the atmosphere but the owner is there every day so you get good quality food and... More

Fresh chips and salsa! Migas, chorizo, carne guisada, breakfast potatoes and coffee were all good! The sweet tea hit the spot! Great atmosphere, friendly workers. Overall a great experience!

This has got to be one of the best Mexican resturants in Arlington. My parents would bring me to (Casa Joses now Daddy Buelos) when i was a little girl. The people are so friendly and the food is great. The sausage potato and egg tacos are my favorite and i love the beans. Definitely have to try. You wont... More

The red tortilla cheese with chili con carne enchiladas are the closest thing to what we got back home in San Antonio. Unlike the 2 to an order typical here in DFW, you get 3 to an order like you are supposed to! Tried the caldo de res and it is very close to moms, it made me feel close... More

Finally found a place with carne guisada tacos and they were pretty good! We have been looking for a place with South Texas food, and finally found one. We will definitely go back!
