Perfect For:

  • Happy Hour
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.

Great $2 Margarita special on Thu ( add a shot of Grand Marnier ). Service was excellent (never an empty glass), and friendly with knowledge of menu items....

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.

It was very good except you all changed to cilantro lime rice, which is not as good as your original rice.

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!

We used to go to Muldoon's East every Monday - 4 adults and 1 child. Then they had flat beer and not good service, so we went elsewhere. We gave them another chance and they were good again. This past visit was not good. We had three different kinds of beer and they were all FLAT. We complained and they brought replacements. They were marginally better but not much. We even had explained to us that one of the beers was not very effervescent to begin with. Yeah - we know what's it's supposed to taste like, we've had it before. Service was excellent from our waitress but if you go somewhere for beer, you want to enjoy it. Food was not very hot when we got it. Guess we'll be going elsewhere again.

Some authentic Mexican music would be a nice touch. Can't stand to hear that ubiquitous lousy Pop music while eating your wonderful TexMex food!
It's bad enough to have to endure it while accompanying my wife while she shops at Penneys, Sears and Kohls!

Jose Muldoons is an above average Mexican restaurant with very good food, friendly helpful staff. The margaritas are very good. It can be very loud at times, seating is plentiful and they have a good bar with multiple TVs and an impressive tequila selection.

Ashley screwed up several of our orders, then acted like she'd try to be nice and have the incorrect ones taken off. Manager came out to discuss it with us and argued with us about what the orders should have been. We go almost every week so are kind of familiar with the happy hour menu. Only one order was correct out of four and we just ate some of the others because it was easier. Manager did take off some charges but looking over it later we only came out about the same moneywise as we should have - except we didn't get what we wanted to eat. We are thinking we'll try somewhere else for a while. Ashley was congenial but never actually apologized for ruining our evening.

We went to this restaurant to get a night away to talk and requested a romantic table. The hostess was great and found us a table right next to a gas fireplace - she even turned it on for us! The waitress was really great, attentive, and friendly. It happened to be happy hour which means that Margarita's were only $3 and my wife said it was tasty. The chips and salsa were only fair. My wife got al la carte enchiladas and tortilla soup while I got a fajita burrito with rice and beans - the burrito was covered in chili con queso, which I really love! Overall, we'd both say that the food was tasty and reasonably priced, especially considering we had living social deal that gave us $10 off. We'd go back because of the ambiance and the decent food, which reminded me of home in Texas.

When we book with Open Table we are always seated immediately. This night we had perhaps the best service we have ever had. There have been times when we couldn't say that! Our server was also the bartender (tall dark haired male). He was excellent and not only took care of the bar but gave us SUPER service. He was assisted by a female bartender (neither gave us their names). They both took great care of us and the food was good, too! Great service can make up for mediocre food, but in this case both were good.

I totally love double dipping at this restaurant. We get rewards from Open Table and rewards from the Locals (frequent eater) card. How spectacularly fun is that? Plus, we got there just before 7 pm and were able to slide in some orders for Happy Hour. Overall, a great experience!
