Marinated strips of steak grilled with fresh bell peppers and onions. Served with guacamole, sour cream, salsa, and hot corn or flour tortillas.
Skirt steak marinated in lime and Mexican spices, grilled and served with warm tortillas.
Two tenders tamales steamed in corn husks, with different fillings daily. Served with your choice of tomatillo sauce, mole, adobado sauce, or chipotle sauce.
Always excellent. The owner, folks who work here, are always lovely. The food is consistent, and they have a very wide range of menu options, flexible for allergies, vegans, gluten free, you-name-it.
My favorite Mexican restaurant. I’ve never had a bad bite in here, and the staff are always friendly. Just great.
All the food was delicious! The server was friendly. The margs were also👌
Will definitely go back!
It was awesome! Great atmosphere, great service. One of the staff recommended a tequila for some shots so we took them and they were delicious,
Service was great it was very quiet. Just wish they had more veggie options. Steak was very tender and all the food was very fresh and tasty
One of my favorite places to eat in the city! Wait staff and all staff are the sweetest, and the authentic Mexican food is incomparable.
We have been to Jose's several times. Usually the environment is quite energetic but due to COVID, it was pretty quiet. The food, as always, was delicious and we enjoyed sangria as well. We felt safe eating there - it was clean. (Something that's important in the time of COVID...)
Great spot. I will be back again. Food and drinks were delicious.
We ordered chicken tamales with mole, and tacos cochinita pibil. My husband is Mexican, and said his food was really good. Mine was too! The restaurant also did a very good job with social distancing and other safety measures.
Good food and friendly service, just slow.
My friends and I loved our outdoor dining experience at Jose's! The tables were a safe distance apart from other diners, the food came quickly and was delicious (great vegetarian options as well), and the margaritas were quite big. We will definitely be coming back.
It was so great to be back at Jose's. We had to make 2 separate reservations because our number exceeded 6 at one table. Food was delicious. Margarita's are the best to be found anywhere. Service was wonderful. We all had a great night!
Great place great food!!
Great! Attentive and safe staff, amazing food.
The servers were so friendly and accommodating. I reserved seating online but didn't realize outside seating wasn't guaranteed, but the waiters were great and got us seated quickly outside despite it being a Friday night. The tables were spaced well and everything felt safe. Plus the food was great, will definitely be back!
We sat outside, on their small patio, facing the street and ordered margaritas, which were great! It was a very pleasant evening and the surrounding area was quite peaceful. Our new favorite place in Cambridge.
We can’t get a table outside, even when we made a reservation
The place was unclean, tables and floors both. Food was terrible. Steak and ground beef tasted old and dry and overcooked. The server was very nice.
Jose's Restaurant is an authentic Mexican place. You will homey. The food is delicious, and the portions are big. Cocktails were amazing and the ceviche was great. You will listen to people talking Spanish, and will definitely feel a Latin American vibe.
We did not like our server. Will not be going back.
The food was really terrible and expensiv. Very very greasy flautas, and undercooked sopes. The only good thing was the guacamole and the hot sauce. her margaritas were ok, not great. The waitresses were cool.
Excellent food and service.! I will definitely come back.
Jose’s was phenomenal! Most authentic Mexican I’ve experienced in Boston. I’m from Denver, CO that boasts a lot of great Mexican food so it’s a welcome sight to have found such a great spot! The margs are amazing!
Delicious food and amazing margaritas
Delicious. Great menu. Comfortable and cozy
Jose’s is a wonderful place to enjoy delicious, homemade Mexican food in a vibrantly colored venue. The fajitas were delicious with plenty of shrimp. Our kids liked the children’s menu as it offered yummy choices. Love their chips and sals!!!
Good quality food. Nice authentic atmosphere. Friendly waitstaff. And easy free parking!
This place is the real deal. It's not the best Mexican food ever, but it is very top quality, and the ambiance and service is the definition of local charm. The enchilada with mole sauce is my favorite.
Great food! Service was great! Margaritas ..the best!
Loved it. Good food and nice people
The food and service was great. It was a quiet night and the waiter found us a nice table for our party of 5. He was patient at explaining the menu and made some excellent recommendations (eg the fajita option). It was a pleasant surprise to order 4 different meals and not have a single one smothered in cheese. This is definitely not Tex mex (phew).
Delicious as always. If you haven’t been in a while the menu has really expanded. Great for vegetarians, vegans, and carnivores alike!
THis is a great find and my second time coming! The sangria is great (a little $$- but good) and the service and food are fantastic!
Best Mexican cuisine that I've been able to find in my 5 years of living in the Boston area! Total gem in Cambridge with super flavorful food and huge margaritas. Make sure they mark off your reservation on Open Table, as they missed this with us.
Got a Groupon for 50% off I believe. All Jose's does is raise the price of food to make up for difference. Way overpriced. $180 bill for 4 people and one kid
Ridiculous. Go to rudis down the street.
Menu was a little more limited on Cinco de Mayo, for some reason, and it was quite busy, so wait person was hard to find. My drink was too "icy," but otherwise tasty. Overall good , so I'd give it another try
Neat venue but food was mediocre to meh. Way too expensive for that quality of meal. Will not return.
Service was poor / rude / rushed. Food was ok but not great. Would not go back.
We love Jose's! It's a friendly, charming restaurant with wonderful food (love the chili rellenos, flautas ... everything, really) and the staff is always so welcoming and kind. Terrific margaritas too. One of the nicest places in the region.
Great food. Better margaritas. Unrivaled hospitality.
