Please contact the restaurant directly to set up a reservation. 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.

The tameles were dry and not much meat inside them. My tacos were great. My wife's cheese enchiladas were very dry and hard on the bottom.
The server that took care of us was very good at his job.

Didn't have plain rice, no flan, and food was nothing special. The frozen sangria was
OK. I used to eat lunch there once a week, so I was disappointed and won't be
back anytime soon. The two ladies with me had a difficult time finding anythng on
the menu of interest.

Usually the food is great. Ordered fish tacos. Tasted great, except for the ice cold tortillas. Waiter offered to reheat them.... but really... everyone else's food was great. Drinks were good and with reservation, no wait

Reliable Tex Mex with a fairly good brunch on Sundays. My wife likes the tamales with eggs. $3 house margaritas certainty aren't a bad touch.

The food had it's ups and downs. The mini beef burrito was awesome and the chili rellenos were good although need to note they were deep fried not traditional. The chicken tacos had little seasoning which was a downer but overall the value was very good. One customer at the bar was obnoxious the entire time and it would have been appropriate for the manager to ask him to leave but that did not happen.

Her Tacos were COLD, not just cool. They were not fully heated. And when it says Tacos come with rice, in a Mexican restaurant I don't expect a bowl of white rice, that made me feel like I was in a Chinese restaurant.

We chose Jose Muldoons for Margarita Day and glad we did. We had reservations fir 5:30 for 2. We got there and it wasn’t crowded. Our waitress was attentive, friendly and very accommodating. She suggested the “old school” Margarita which was perfect only $3 . Chips n salsa was the right temperature. The tacos were tasty, black beans thumbs up.

Another excellent date night at Jose's! Yummy margaritas (peach for me and strawberry for my partner) and delicious food as always. We have dietary restrictions (gluten free and vegetarian), and we never have problems here. The service was excellent as usual.

My husband and I like to try different places for our date nights and this was nice. Our server was attentive, but left us alone just the right amount. We were never looking for him. The food was as good as any mexican restaurant I've been to. Not super fancy, of course, but we went during happy hour and got drinks and had a good time together. If you're looking for a mexican restaurant, this would be a good choice.

Food is normally awesome. This time (Sat 11/14 @ 4:30pm) the Guac was overloaded with garlic and the Chile Rellenos had too much batter and were doughy inside.

I'm sure next time will be better, but the inconsistency is frustrating.

Mike, I appreciate your taking the time to bring this issue to my attention. I was disappointed to hear that you were unhappy with your experience with us. I'm sorry that we allowed you to feel that you did not receive a good value for the money you spent. I have brought this to the attention of kitchen management, we are currently looking to resolve recipe inconsistency. Please don't hesitate to contact me personally with more information you would like to relay. Thank you! Cindy Biondo

Jose's is always good. We had a new waitress who did everything she could to make our meal enjoyable-and she did. The food was well prepared, sevice was excellent and a nice family atmosphere. We will be there many more times if COVID doesn't put every small business into bankruptcy.

5 stars on all categories but have to give 4 on food only because too many dishes have cilantro. 14% of the population has a genetic predisposition that makes cilantro taste bad.
