Mexican Flag Enchiladas
Three enchiladas, one topped with tomato salsa, one with cheese, and one with tomatillo sauce to resemble the Mexican flag.
Joses was a family favorite for many years. We had never had issues with reservations being honored, service being sub par or orders coming out correctly. All of that changed during our last time @ Joses. Sadly, we won't be returning.
The drinks were good. We came in kind of late but the wait staff did not really give us time to order or communicate the closing of the bar and kitchen.
Delicious- always have loved Joses
Seeing Carlos, the owner, greeting us at the door and walking us to our table was excellent. A great signal that the pandemic is almost over. Carlos and his staff were very friendly and attentive to our service needs. Food was excellent.
Now with this new found freedom, we plan on being back to Jose’ s very soon.
Service was a little slow, but that was understandable given the post pandemic situation.
Food was amazing and the margaritas were delicious. Taking one star off because we had reserved and outdoor table and when we arrived we were told that they don’t take reservations for outside seating and wouldn’t honor it. That was annoying since it clearly stated in the open table app that the reservation was for an outdoor table.
I loved being able to reserve an outdoor table. Jose's has great vegetarian and vegan options and delicious black beans (my favorite!). I got the mexican flag enchiladas filled with spinach and cheese, and it was so good.
Made a reservation for outdoor dining, showed up and was told “I know you made a reservation for outside but we don’t take reservations for outside.” I understand places get busy and mistakes get made but what bothered me was that they couldn’t have cared any less. We said we were willing to wait if they could give us a time range but they couldn’t even do that. They just kind of stared at us and were totally unhelpful. Bad customer service. Never actually ate there.
They’re not really abide by the reservation system, but if you know that in advance it’s a good time!
Absolutely horrible service. I would never step into that restaurant again
Service took awhile- food was decent at best.
Please note that Jose's does not guarantee an outside reservation, even if you select that in your reservation. We are only eating outside right now and had to wait an additional 35 minutes to get an outside table.
Overall, the restaurant was very understaffed. It took 25 minutes for our waiter to come to our table and an additional 20 minutes to get our drinks. Once we did get our food, one order had the wrong meat and they completely missed our appetizer. The food was pretty good and the drinks delicious, but it wasn't worth the wait.
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.
