Happy to have found this large cantina - they had the dark Dos Equis in bottles as well as on draft, the service was excellent and the food was good, and fast.

Our 3rd stop at this location on trips to FL. Have enjoyed each visit trying something different each time. This time we had Shrimp Quesadilla and Chicken & Spinach Quesadilla. Good size and very tasty. Drinks are reasonable, good service and very clean rest rooms.

Just over the Noth Carolina border heading north on I 95 in the town of Lumberton. Highly recommended by the locals and deservidly so. Very friendly and accommodating. Food seems of Jalescan influence; ground beef and sauces. Sadly, no mole here. Be aware if you desire chiles rellenos, they have two versions: a stuffed poblano (what one would expect) and... More

Went here with friends for dinner. Food was okay, decent but bland. Service good. Margarita okay but was obviously poured straight from a bottled mix. Enchiladas and fajitas okay but not spicy. The location is difficult to find as it's actually behind a hotel. Has a large cantina attached to it but we didn't try it.

Stayed in Lumberton one night to cut time off our drive to the mountains. We chose San Jose because I had been for lunch on a business trip about 4 years ago. It was great then and still great! My wife loves Mexican food so this was the perfect choice. She said the chicken fajitas quesadilla was the best Mexican... More

The food here is fresh and delicious. The service was fast and courteous. Mayra, I think that's her name was fabulous. We had a great meal, at a great place with a great server. Next time I'm in the area, I will be sure to stop by again!!

good food, good food service people, nice range of beverages. It was not a busy time, so the busy capacity is uncertain

First Raul our waiter was the best. He has the greatest personality and made us feel welcome the minute we sat down. He makes a mean Long Island Ice Tea. My hubby does not like a lot of sweet and sour and Raul made it perfectly. Food was really good. Fajitas portions were good size. Raul advised us to put... More

I used to work in the Lumberton area in 1999-2001 and ate here on a regular basis. Now 15 years later I've returned and eaten here twice, one month apart. The service is great, the food well above average. They do well with vegetables, squash/zucchini tomatoes, onions, spinach, mushrooms. Those meat dishes stand out to me. Both of my recent... More
