We serve comfort food that celebrates our forefathers’s Mexican roots and the culinary traditions of the local neighborhood.

"Intentionally or not, with the opening of Jose and Sons the Ibarras have also created a gastronomic symbol for the cultural melting pot that our region is increasingly becoming."

"Painted around the base of the bar, in large block capital letters, are the words “HECHO EN RALEIGH.” I can’t think of a more suitable motto for a restaurant that embodies the best of our rapidly evolving local dining scene."

Greg Cox, The News &Observer

I hate to leave a bad review because I feel like I'm in the minority's on this one, but we visited Jose and Sons after hearing rave review after rave review. Unfortunately, not one item was particularly good. The huevos rancheros were okay, the pork belly waffles were neither salty, nor savory, nor sweet enough so I'm not sure what category they were supposed to fall under. It was all quite disappointing.

Service was good. No questions. Vegetarian options were very poor. Folks who prefer pork would like this place.

Food is amazing and the service was really good. We had the chefs picnic and it was probably one of the best restaurants in Raleigh.

The food is just so so, definitely not worth the price. Have had better Mexican food elsewhere, nice atmosphere inside. Just wish they had a better product.

Very pleased with our brunch at Jose & Sons! We made a reservation for 11:30 am, but didn't really need it for that early an arrival. The food was excellent and a bit out of the ordinary (waffles with cracklings and soft boiled eggs for me.) Our server was very friendly and informative; the space is tastefully decorated, not garish; and the tab was not outrageous for an upscale Mexican restaurant.

Overall delightful experience! Delicious margaritas and fish tacos! Beet salad was a bit strange; not really to our liking. Service was friendly and efficient.

Didn’t like that we were sat in the middle of everyone despite many tables being open. Good service but somewhat slow. Food was really good, highly rec the flautas!
