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.
Perfect place for friends to get together. Fun and friendly.
We came to celebrate my daughters birthday. The place was crowded, but we had a reservation. The service was horribly slow and painful sitting and waiting forever just to get water or drinks. Food was mediocre. They did bring out a piece of cake and a Mexican hat and sang happy birthday which was very cute. I wish it was an overall better experience but not many were happy with their meals or the service. Unfortunately won’t be back.
The food was absolutely delicious, service was great, restaurant clean, and yes, we will return with our friends.
Absolutely delicious, including the pitcher of margaritas! Fun, lively and delicious. We’ll definitely return!
Quick and accurate service. Food and drinks were excellent. Ambiance always great. Waitress was super friendly and didn’t rush us out, which so often restaurants do. Love love love this place. Autentica margaritas are superb
Like a cozy Austin hideaway except here we are in Cambridge. a great place for a winter's night with warm hosts, outstanding Margaritas (try Dave's). Food was wonderful, home made. Great carne asada, chile rellanos, and our waitstaff and hosts couldn't be nicer. A local haven that has been here and needs to be discovered and rediscovered...
Pulled it out of a hat and made a reservation. Food and drinks were just great, very authentic. Will certainly go again.
Went for lunch around 2:00 on a Friday. Food was great. Service good except I asked for a vodka tonic and the bartender brought me a vodka with sparkling water. When I questioned her, she said they don't have tonic water? At a bar? Still love it here. Friday steak special is so good.
This is delicious food, with a range of unusual dishes. Not the typical fare... but standards taste good, too. The mole is especially good, though we were disappointed that the sopapillas were flat rather than puffy. Otherwise, we loved it all. The ambience is casual and service is prompt and very friendly.
Perhaps the best margaritas I've had anywhere ever. The food was superb. I ordered a dish that had skirt steak and a chorizo stuffed poblano pepper. Wow. They had both authentic dishes and what Americans (like me) would consider "classic" Mexican. Go here. It's a gem.
Very nice ambiance, great margaritas, very good food - overall a great night out!
Food was great. We had reservations and were seated upstairs where we were forgotten. Seated at 7:00 did not get our food until 8:15. Not enough wait staff or kitchen help? Will try it again but ask to be seated downstairs where the wait staff are visible.
Once again, the best kept secret in Cambridge, authentic Mexican food. We drive back into town just to eat this wonderful meal.
I wish they would make a Mexican salad dressing for the Faita Salad. The guacamole needs more spice. We usually add hot sauce and salt. Chips and salsa are very tasty. My son was disappointed with his steak dish.
The food was fabulous - margaritas, too. The tables are in tight quarters - it's a small local restaurant, but the staff were all wonderful, super fast in preparing our food and fulfilling our requests. Love it!!
i enjoyed the fajitas so much, i had to go back for more.
the food was authentic and delicious. We had the Vegetarian platter including the tamales.
The favorite was the Oxaca cheese with peppers appetizer. This was outstanding.
The enchiladas were tasty as well.
However the place was too small and the seating was too cramped. they have just one person bathroom so even if you want to wash your hands you have to wait in the queue downstairs.
We recommend towlettes being offered to patrons.
This place is delightful. Charmingly decorated, and some of the best Mexican food I've ever had
The only reason why I am giving it a 4 star is because our table, the only one available was next to the door and I was cold but overall this restaurant is a 6 stars.
I ordered the vegetable tamales. They were huge cylinders of cornmeal--there was literally one small piece of onion and one small piece of green pepper inside one of them. Blech. Really gross. I only ate them to avoid being awkward with the rest of our party. The margaritas were pretty good, but a bit too sweet. But those tamales, good god. The worst I've ever had.
Went to Jose's on a Friday night with a few friends. We had made a reservation, so we were seated right away. They had a huge parking lot, which is literally unheard of in Cambridge. The decor is what you would expect of a Mexican restaurant in New England, but it had a much cozier and more intimate feel than most. The margaritas were enormous and the food was solid, I will definitely be returning.
If you love Mexican food, have eatten Mexican food in Los Angeles, New York City, or even in Mexico, DO NOT GO HERE! The food is completely SUB-PAR on all levels. It is completely overpriced, the portions are small, and it is not even good food. For starters, the rice is not authentic Spanish or Mexican rice. It tasted disgusting. This was my first time here and I went with high hopes. I ordered the most simplest Mexican dish - the Tamale Plate, hoping they would be soft, plump, full of filling. No! The tamles were 1/3 of the size of traditional tamales. They were also very dense and dry. There is no excuse for this - they are steamed so there is no excuse for serving dense and dry tamales. And, there was almost NO filling in them!!! I kept eating bite, after bite, thinking the filling must have slipped in the other end. At first I thought maybe my dish was just poorly made. When I tried my friend's dish it was just as bad! She had gotten the Taco Plate. I have never tried such bad tacos from a restaurant. I grew up in Los Angeles with authentic Mexican food. All my friends were Mexican and I would have Mexican food probably three times a week if not more. Jose's is by far the worst Mexican restaurant I have been to in the Boston area. And the prices were outrageous. The only thing I enjoyed during my meal was the free chips and salsa and the lighting.
I used to go to Jose's often. The food used to be fresher and this week the food was mediocre. The staff is always very nice and helpful.
Excellent service & delicious meal!
