We went to this rstaurant based in the reviews. It was awefull! Over 35 minute wait for our order. The waitress checked on us once that entire time and when the food arrived it was terrible.

Oh my goodness, we are so ashamed. We must have really offended you somehow for you to write your very first review ever on TripAdvisor as a "terrible" rating for our restaurant. Our service is usually very attentive and our Mexican food, although not real spicy, is generally considered good by most. We apologize for failing you so badly. Usually... More

My husband and i went to Cafe Jose by referral from a local grocery store employee and we were very pleased. From the moment we walked through the door our experience was pleasing and the food was great. My husband chooses to have more salt in his meals whereas I prefer less and this restaurant was very accommodating to both... More

Despite the name, Cafe Jose serves good old-fashioned home style cooking. It is a classic American diner which also happens to serve good Mexican food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served all day. Cafe Jose is a favorite spot for local residents. It has won the local award for the past several years for "Best Home Cooking," "Best Breakfast," "Best Family Dining." "Friendliest Wait Staff," and "Best Overall Bargain." The food is not fancy, but it is tasty and served with a smile. The portions are large, but meals are priced to fit anyone's budget.
