  • creojohn reviewDry over cooked shrimp in the El Pueblo - Beef good. Portion size of the appetizer cajun popcorn shrimp dramatically undersized from the last time we ate there. Server insisted that the size not only changed but was increased. Not true. My husband and I use to share this. Not anymore - we counted 5 small shrimp and maybe 5 small broken pieces of batter. - What a disapointment. The manager offered no help and when I asked for a comment card, he said that Jose's doesn't use them anymore. Oh well, guess you don't need my business.

  • creojohn reviewExcellent Tex-Mex restaurant. Way above average food in quality and taste. Highly recommended for overall atmosphere and quality. Personal favorites include Blackened Chicken, Steak & Blue Cheese Salad and Fajitas. Always a warm and friendly greeting from the staff and a bowl of warm chips accompanied by a medium to mild salsa, just the way I like it. Nights are usually busy so be prepared for a wait, especially in summer. Only negatives are Margaritas sometimes need a return trip for additional boost of tequila and seafood is occasionally slightly overcooked. We frequent twice a month for last 11 years.

    55555 by Ernie O.


  • Joe KFavorite restaurant on Earth. Authentic Mexican and Cajun food in NJ! It's cheap to eat, around $25 per person including drinks. No dessert on the menu except birthday cake because you won't want it.

    55555 by Joe K


  • Jorge NThis is the best meal there (at least thats my opinion) but the sauce is perfect and they get the type of meat you like very well and it comes with the side of either rice or French fries.

    55555 by Jorge N

    55555 by Myles


  • Tim T.It's kind of like Chevy's. Tex-Mex, good margaritas, tasty and fresh tortilla chips. Good vegetarian options on the back of the menu. The empanadas were good.

    55555 by Tim T.


  • Tom M.Can't go wrong with the empanadas -- fresh and crispy, oh so good

    55555 by Tom M.


  • Melissa O.It's OK as an alternative to chains like Chevy's or Chili's, but be prepared to wait for an irrationally long time no matter when you go.

    33333 by Melissa O.


  • Kyle WIf you want to be sick the next day from the food go ahead. Very expensive booze considering it's location

    22222 by Kyle W


  • Nayha S.Slowest service in the world but at least the margs are decent

    33333 by Nayha S.


  • Brooks D.Really good margs. Not worth the wait in my opinion. Food was pretty good for the price but it's not great.

    33333 by Brooks D.


  • Onezumi H.Call from car. 10 min wait. 30 seconds later put name in. 20 min later they say I have an hour wait. At least the front staff is consistently a bunch of jackass.

    22222 by Onezumi H.
