Diner Reviews
  • "We arrived and the host was great! We arrived at the table and she gave us menus and said our server would be right there. We waited a long time for the service and when he arrived. He was nice and took our order, but it took forever and some of our requests were not completed. We asked for corn tortillas, vs flour and we did not have enough silverware and our waters were low. He did not come back for a long time.. we had to flag someone else down to help. He never filled our waters but did bring the corn tortillas. I dont know if he was new, or if he was overloaded but the service was really really slow."

  • "We have tried - and liked - several Mexican restaurants since we moved to COS a year ago. But this food was REALLY good! Tasty enchilada sauce, great salsa, great, friendly service…all good. We'll be back!"

  • "I have heard great things about this place for years, but never tried it. It was worth the wait. The food is very good, and the margaritas are very strong, especially if you get them yourself at the bar. Service was just ok, but try to get on the patio, very cool, and they play goofy games out there on Saturdays!"

  • "We got there a few minutes early and they sat us before a reservation time. There Valentine special was sounded great. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The food came out fairly quick and was delicious. There was more than enough food for the 2 of us. A great date night for us both."

  • "We had come here about a month ago. We made a reservation with the open table app but they did not have our reservation and we ended up leaving. A few weeks later I get an email from the general manager expressing their apoligies and wanted to make it up with a gift card. So we came back and made our reservation with open table. They had our reservation and we got great service. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was good. We even stuck around for dessert which was great too. I really loved the fact that they read my review and wanted the chance to make it up to me. Well they did and we will be returning sometime soon to enjoy their great food."

  • "It was difficult to find a moderately priced restaurant in Colorado Springs that we could bring our 2 year old to, and wasn't very far away. Our waitress was excellent and a lot of the items on the menu we thought were a good value for the money."

  • "In the heart of downtown Colorado Springs is Jose Muldoon's, a tasty Mexican food diner with great ambience and a wide menu. Our group had a variety of menu selections including enchiladas, chimichangas, and several combo platters. Overall, the food was prepared quite well and had a good balance of flavors. The decor throughout feels like you're in the living room of someone's estate. The location is close to any other activities in Colorado Springs and it's typically a nice walk through the heart of the city. Service was slow to say the least, but our waiter may have been overworked, which caused our drinks and our chips to both run dryn on multiple occasions. But, the food is exceptional and I will go back."

  • "I've eaten here before and they have good food. Service varies from great to sometimes slow. For this visit I made a reservation for 2 with the Open Table app to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. I got a e-mail confirmation for my reservation but when I arrived they did not have my reservation in the computer. Showed them my e-mail confirmation on my phone and they said they would try to get me in as soon as they could. The wait was 20 min. I'm not sure how fast they could have got us a table but we decided the dinner was already off to a bad start so after waiting 10 minutes we decided not stick around and went to another restaurant. I might not trust open table to make my next reservation for this place."

  • "I wanted to have a quiet place to have a nice conversation with a friend. The night I went, it was pretty loud. Not really the restaurant's fault. This is a place to come to have a good time and not worry about being a bit noisy. Good for groups or a night out to have fun. I prefer JM's for lunch over dinner."

  • "Food was good. Server did not have good cusotmer skills, and with his attitude and demeanor he did not want to be working this evening."
    Dined on 4/20/2013
  • "I've been here at least a dozen a times. The atmosphere at this Jose Muldoon's is cool and gives off that downtown vibe, but the food at the East location on Powers is WAY better. Our dishes were okay here with hearty portions, but we've had much better at the East restaurant. Service was fine, though I've definitely had more upbeat waitresses than the one we got. I liked the salsa and warm chips."

  • "Normally a great restaurant however there were some problems this weekend during the parade. We had a reservation for a large group immediately following the parade. We also had three babies under a year old, hence the reservation with open table. When we checked in the hostess said they weren't doing reservations and ours must have slipped through. We had to wait 45+ minutes for a table. They never should have accepted the reservation. Also, while waiting for a table, we got the privilege of listening to the hostess girls complain about customers. Really pathetic behavior. Next time, I recommend verifying twice that you have a reservation here on an event day. They'll accept them and confirm via email and deny you when you walk in."

  • "Service is great. Food needs to be worked on. Some items you can taste it comes out of a can. Chili rellenos do not look appetizing at all."
    Dined on 1/18/2013
  • "The food is very good, but the service was lacking on my last visit. Most of the staff were sitting at a table having a holiday party rather than serving the guests eating dinner. I get it that it's the holidays, but at least ask if I need more drinks or dessert."
    Dined on 12/22/2012
  • "This was my first time here and I was pretty disappointed with my meal. I ordered the chicken burrito which came out extremely dry. They must have and it sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time because the black beans that came on the side along with the rice were dried out and were crispy from overheating. Flavor was nothing special. Couldn't really eat much of it. Usually restaurants on Open Table are higher quality. This was just bar food. Sangria and margarita was bland as well even though they had good happy hour specials. Service was good and they didn't try to cram our group at a small table. They gave us a larger one which was nice so we could spread out."
    Dined on 11/8/2012
  • "We made reservations and were able to get right in when we arrived. We had a party of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids) and sat in the back room. It was nice and quiet enough for us to be able to have great conversation. The food was good and our server was excellent."
    Dined on 8/18/2012
  • "Good Mexican and Tex-Mex food at reasonable prices. The place is often packed and there is usually a wait---another reason to make a reservation with Open Table. We walked through the waiting crowd and got seated immediately. Definitely will return on my next visits to ColoSprings."
    Dined on 7/3/2012
  • "Made reservation on line and requested a nice table well in advance, but the receptionist did not even bother to check and guided us to an average table that was almost loose off the wall and about to collapse. One dish had to be returned, served ice cold. Chips & Salsa were sub par, to their credit, they did not charge for that part of the order, but will not be back there again. There must be other better Mexican restaurants to look for in C Springs!"

  • "We had a nice early supper with my folks after a concert on a Sunday afternoon; it was late in the afternoon and not quite dinner time. And it was predictably quiet. It looked like the server was still in training, which is ok since we've all been there before. Jose Muldoon's for us is a "known commodity," and we like supporting our local busineses."

  • "Love the "holiday" specials, like Valentines Day, New Years Eve, it's the reason we come in and we usually get a few couples to join us. We had 6 couples on New Years Eve and the food/service was stellar!"
    Dined on 2/14/2012
  • "We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food, but the service was terrible. It wasn't the waitresses fault, they way over sat her and she was running around trying to keep up, but we waited for 20 minutes before the server approached us for the first time and we had empty drinks a few times and had to wait 5-10 minutes for another."
    Dined on 1/27/2012
  • "Very good food, loved the chicken/shrimp fajitas. We set-up a reservation for 8, it grew to 12. We called ahead and let them know our initial reservation had changed, they were very accomdating and friendly. We arrived, the table was ready and waiting for us, the waitress was friendly and despite being swamped with customers, she kept checking in on us to make sure our drinks were full and see if we need anything. Definitely recommend!"

  • "We ordered the sizzling Jose's Specialty combination skillet (Beef & Chicken) and we were extremely disapointed. both the Chicken and Beef were over cookedto start and the further (cooking) sizzling of the meat made it even worse."

  • "I love Jose Muldoon's. Who doesn't? They have been a standard in Colorado Springs for decades. This was my first visit back to Jose's since I moved back to the Springs. The patio is still my favorite, our server was nothing short exceptional. She had a bright vibrant smile, a bubbly personality, and a "Absolutlely! We can do that for you..." attitude from the get go. Jose's has always been a place I take out of town guests to in the past. My return yesterday after a four year absence just confirmed that they are a still a reliable, fun destination with out of sight food and service. Thanks!"

  • "Good Restaurant for a pre-concert dinner - close to Pikes Peak Center. Hardly any wait with a reservation, even on a holiday. A bit on the loud-side, but that was expected from previous word of mouth reviews. Waitress was personable, and had good suggestions for food & beverages that my husband took advantage of. Food arrived fairly quickly, and was exactly as represented on the menu. Tasty, but no surprises. Prices are VERY reasonable. Overall: Not a bad experience."
