Diner Reviews
  • " The setting on the patio is SPECTACULAR! The rest of the dinner experience was okay. Nothing bad, but nothing great either. The food we ordered was so-so."

  • "We made patio reservations. Arrived 5 minutes early. We were met at the podium by Lillian, who summarily told us that we were 1 hour late. She rudely said that even though our printed reservation had the current time & special request for patio dining, due to the fact my wife gets a little claustrophobic, she was not required to honor it. She said we could wait 30 minutes for another table, but that it was first come, first serve & she would not hold one for us if we did not wait right there. She was very rude & condescending in her words & demeanor & actually raised her voice when speaking to me. It did not matter to her what our reservations said, nor that we were hotel guests for the next few days. Poor attitude = no repeat business."

  • "Willy and Jose's is so reliable ...I have been regularly eating here for years and it rarely, if ever lets you down! The food is amazingly good value and their margaritas are delicious and lethal!!!! I had fajitas and Cadillac margarita...it cost $16! Unbelievable! The chips and salsa and bean dip are complimentary and delicious too....I could I don't really understand how they make money at all and the fajita is absolutely enough for 2 people (well people who are moderate eaters) I usually do share but I was eating alone that night! I also requested a patio table - which I would recommend.... You can sit 'outside' in Mystic Falls Park and watch the world go by and the laser show, which starts at 6pm, 8pm and 10pm... Love it 👍😀"

  • "We dined here for Father's day and it was our first time. The service was awesome and the bottomless marguaritas were great too. We both had Chimichanga's and they were good, only knock on them is that we like them a little crispier. Food portions very generous, we were too full for dessert. The Fajita's looked good from a table away."

  • "The 42 oz. margarita is not only huge, but tastes great. The food was very good and sitting on the patio in the open atruim of the hotel listening to the waterfall makes this an overall outstanding experience. I recommend Willy and Jose's."

  • "The first night we attempted to eat there we were seated fairly quickly. But once we got to our table we were ignored for at least 10 minutes with no explanation, so we left. Two nights later we made reservations at 7:15. We were promptly seated, and someone came to take our drink orders. They brought my husbands non-alcoholic drink out fairly quickly, but it took them over 15 minutes to deliver my drink, and that only happened because we were finally able to wave someone down to ask where it was. Seems they had tried to deliver it to another table and couldn't remember who it belonged to. My husband enjoyed his fajitas, but my salmon was dry and overcooked. We wouldn't go back there."

  • "Servers were friendly but slow. The food was ok but not something I'd go back for. There are far better places in Vegas to choose from. "

  • "The salad my wife had was nothing. No dressing on it and she said that she could have received a better one at Taco Bell. The other dinners were good. We all had a lot to eat and drink. It was my wife's birthday, so it did not go well with her. We have been the Willy and Jose's before and we have found it to be very good, tasteful and a great place."

  • "Please do not let the poor service rating stop you from dining here. The rating was poor because they lost/deleted my online reservation that I made three weeks in advance. After being insistant, our table was seated. From there everything was perfect. Excellent service, wonderful food and tasty drinks."

  • "I took my son Alex for dinner to Willy's and Jose's to celebrate his 21st Birthday and to experience the show at Sam's Town. The waiter was great, freindly and very attentive to our party. He even went the extra mile to get the bartender to make him a drink he would like to try with our meal. I love going to Willy's and Jose's the food is good and my margarita is always good too. I'll be back when I'm able to get back to Vegas in a year or two. Thanks for making our dinner a special occasion for Alex!!!"

  • "With the laser light show at Sam's Town it was great to eat outside and watch the laser light show at the same time. The food was great and our waiters were right on top of everything. My husband and I have been looking for good Mexican Food in Vegas, we've tried any restaurants. I think we've finally found it."

  • "I have eaten there many times,but was with someone that hadn't eaten there before. The chips & salsa were good, but when we asked for a hotter salsa, what they brought was like Cayenne paste not salsa with chilies. He had a green chili burrito & I had the tostado. We neither one, were able to finish our meal. First experience like this at W & J and made me sad as I had always enjoyed your food before. I am talking about many years of eating there."

  • "We choose a restaurant each year to meet and just enjoy a meal with family and friends and celebrate the season. This is a perfect location. Could have even ordered a turkey meal. Love to eat here and have been a loyal local since Sam opened the hotel. Hopefully you all get a chance to eat at one of their restaurants soon. Happy holidays to all."

  • "Hostess was BAD, kept leaving her station and then came back complaining that its not her job to bust tables (very unprofessional). The server ignored us most of the time leaving our drinks empty for most of the meal. I stopped going here years ago because the food got bad. I have been here a couple times within the last year and it was great. I guess i wont be coming back for a while or until they hire some better people. Food was ok, nothing to brag about."

  • "Came here after we participated in the NFR. Made reservations, which was a big help when we were asking for an outside table. It was quite nosy because it was Christmas and the water show was going off, but that was expected. The waitress messed up our meal, but we got a free pitcher of margaritas and dessert. We come here about once a year at the same time, and will still come back even though there were issues this time."

  • "We had a reservation on 10/30/13 at 6:15pm, when we arrived the short asian hostess told us we didnt have a reservation. I was trying to show her my email confirmation and she said oh wait it just popped up. Then we had to wait 15 mins for our table and when we did sit down we were still short a chair and the hostess states well you only reserved for 7, and I told her yes we have 7. When our server arrived a blonde older lady she was rushing us and never took her time to ask us questions or explained something to us. We had to wait over 10 minutes for chips and she felt bothered because I ask for 1 tortialla in advanced sinced I ordered fajitas. Horrible service. She checked up on us 1 time but was quick when we paid and waited for a tip."

  • "Willy and Joses has been one the best places to go for Tex-Mex for several decades. Now in it's new digs, it even has a view and entertainment (adjacent to the Mystic Falls Park fountain and laser show). The food selection is very good, but I do miss the rather informal menu they used in the past. The new menu has been classed-up for a more modern venue. Two of my suggested menu selections that are a little out the ordinary Mexican cuisine are the "Sincronizada' and the "Seafood Enchilada.""

  • "Wonderful ambience with large atrium setting and the experience of being outdoors. Roamantic setting in the evening with lights in the trees. Food was good but only luke warm. May have sat on the plate a little too long before being delivered. Would still recommend."

  • "My wife and I ate at Will & Jose's for the first time last Tuesday. We were celebrating my birthday. The drinks and food were excellent. I had the salmon and it was perfect. The fried ice cream for desert was a special treat. Our waitress, A J, was most pleasant and efficient. We ate outdoors on the patio and were able to watch the light/fountain show while we ate. We were there early, at 5:30, so we got to take advantage of happy hour too. And at the end of the meal I was given a free T-shirt for my birthday. The prices are very reasonable. We will go to Willy & Jose's again."

  • "Went there for Mother's Day dinner. Four of us were seated right away and there were only two other tables occupied. I always do early dinner, 4:30, to avoid the crowds on occasions like this. Service was excellent and attentive. Hint: Free margarita refills."
