Mexican
We are excited to bring Jose Muldoon’s, which has been a staple of the Springs' downtown scene for over thirty years to the east side. The menu features authentic Tex-Mex style Mexican fare, the best margaritas and a variety of burgers, sandwiches, salads and vegetarian entrees. We serve our famous cuisine using only the freshest ingredients, all prepared daily.

José Muldoon's, named after the legendary bandito, has been modeled with a modern southwestern look, inviting fireplaces, an indoor/outdoor dining section including a bar, HD television visible from any spot in the bar area and semi-private banquet dining. José's service staff is always friendly and efficient. We are proud to be the now more easily accessible favorite Tex-Mex destination in Colorado Springs.

New Year’s Eve dinner. Jose’s is a favorite place to dine and was perfect for us for New Year’s Eve. Food always very good, service excellent and staff are wonderful. We’re regulars there.

Had company in from out of town. Lots of different tastes and picky eaters. Our party of seven went to José Muldoon’s and EVERYONE was happy! For many it was their first taste of Green Chili and they loved it. We often take out-of-town guests to José Muldoon’s because the experience is always great. The food, service, atmosphere and prices are consistently just right.

We tried this on a whim and weren't sure what to think walking in but found the service to be excellent and the food to be very tasty. Happy hour specials including $3.50 draft beers are a pretty good deal. Would go again.

Delicious food! Service could use some improvement. We were celebrating an engagement as well as a 34 year anniversary and the manager said they couldn't do anything special for us even when I offered to pay for whatever it was. That was disappointing.

Recommended for brunch on a budget. Get what you pay for. The $2 hours margarita was awful

I easily made a reservation online for our party of seven and the table was ready when we arrived. Some of our group was late and our server, Sarah, remained friendly and attentive while we waited. I know it’s frustrating to have a large table in your section move slowly. She pointed out that it was happy hour and brought our drinks and appetizers in a timely manner. She checked on us just often enough.
All of the food was served hot and it was delicious!

Jose Muldoon's isn't the best Mexican restaurant in town, but with my occasional visits, I've never been disappointed. It's a "comfortable", relaxed place to eat, the good consistently "good", and the prices are reasonable (and sometimes you even find coupons!). They don't skimp on food...I'm always stuffed. It's the Mexican restaurant I go to most often in Colorado Springs.

We got steak quesadillas which we usually love. But there was just a few pieces of steak in them. So it was basically a cheese quesadilla. Disappointing

Great food and attentive wait staff. I had ordered a crispy chili relleno and the server had noticed that it had cooked too long and rather than just bring it to me like many others would have done, she had the kitchen remake it and came to the table to apologize for the delay that we hadn't even noticed or cared about and explained what happened. On top of that, they discounted the item because of the "wait". This was unexpected, but showed how much good service means to Jose Muldoon's! When the relleno came out, it was cooked to perfection! I would highly recommend the restaurant based on the excellent service alone!

Your food has gone downhill lately. The cilantro lime rice is overpowering, the nachos were plenteous but the ingredients besides cheese could have much more numerous and heated along with the nachos. Serve them on a wider platter and they will be much easier to eat. We are longtime faithful customers but we may not be back.

Service by Kaitlyn was exceptional.
Food was good except for rice is WAY too limey and Santa Fe Stacked Enchiladas had chunks of somewhat hard/dry fajita chicken instead of the usual yummy shredded chicken.
Thank you for returning to your practice of not charging for additional baskets of chips.

I took my fiancee here for a date night, sizzling steak fajita was good, the little flan cups were also good. I would recommend for a cozy date night.

The food was good and we enjoyed ourselves. Took a while to get the food, but as we went during happy hour and ordered an appetizer, that may have been part of the reasoning as to the timing of the courses, etc. Our server was excellent and made the evening very enjoyable.

Fun place, but food average. Our waitress was very attentive. My husband enjoyed his meal. But even though we had the same thing, I was disappointed, I felt it was not seasoned well.

Although a few minutes early, we were seated within moments of our arrival. We opted for the verandah, which was wonderful as it was much quieter. It was not hot, as some might expect. The service was great and the food was good. I do have an issue with paying a surcharge for the spicy salsa; that was not expected. The sopapillas were overcooked and not worth the effort. Overall, this was still a very pleasant experience.

I love that we can ask for a quieter area on OpenTable. We had a chance to catch up with a good friend. We went early enough for happy hour margaritas and less expensive appetizers, so I just made a meal of appetizers (queso and quesadillas). Yum! I like this Jose's better than the downtown, because there is free parking!

Beat the line and use Open Table! We got there for our last visit and the waiting area was full but our party of 3 was seated immediately! Love the fish tacos and the Mean Green chili!
