This may be real mexican food but it is not real good mexican food. The chips & 'hot sauce' - After we ordered, a small bowl of chips and a small bowl of hot sauce were brought. The chips are flour tortillas that have been deep fried. The problem is that they were greasy. The hot sauce was not hot... More

We have reviewed this restaurant before: two years ago. We liked it then. We love it now. This is a family-owned restaurant based on true Mexican cuisine. We have got to know JJ and his wife Evelene and have become very friendly. So, this review could well be biased: but it is not. We went there with one of our... More

JJ's Oasis Latino is a small family owned restaurant with a large menu. Service is very friendly. They have large portions and the food is freshly cooked. The chicken burritos were loaded with chicken. Tortilla chips and salsa were provided and were good. It is so nice to get real Mexican food rather than the typical offerings at fast food... More

Decided to try this place after all the positive reviews (and close proximity to our hotel). We were the only table there throughout our entire meal - this normally worries me when nobody else is there. The food was good. The chips and salsa to start were not the best - salsa was runny and not very tasty and the... More

We had dinner here twice in two days--that's how good it was. The place is run by a really friendly couple. The husband handles the front of the house while the wife is busy in the kitchen. The food was excellent and you really feel like they are hosting you in their own home. The best thing on the menu,... More

I had the opportunity to dine with friends last night at JJ's...... I had not eaten there in over 6 years...... It was a pleasant surprise. JJ's is a very understated, small, authentic Mexican Restaurant. The owner greets you at the door and welcomes you with open arms...... I must say, I had the Smoothest traditional Mexican Margarita that I... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. We've been coming here for 4 years now & have thoroughly enjoyed every time our homestyle meals, beer selection & friendly service. A great family owned and run restaurant with Grandma's recipes, an expansive Central American beer selection & top notch service. We noticed the outside patio has also been updated for all those...

Had lunch here and the food was just ok, the service was great, quick and friendly... Portions were small, I had a cheese enchilada but there wasn't much flavor, rice and beans were ok. The tamale was dry and chili relleno was soggy.

We have eaten at JJ's for over 20 years. It's small and family owned and run. They have just added a patio which is dog friendly and we will come more often. We love the food!!
