Description: Serving up Mexican food since 1972, Jose's Courtroom offers ocean views, family friendly dining, and late night drinks and entertainment. During the day we serve some of the towns best Mexican food and plenty of margaritas to wash it down. Jose's Happy hour is from 4-7pm Monday-Friday with food and drink specials. With it's diverse crowds, Jose's is a place where you can find yourself at the bar sharing stories with a suit on your left and a surfer just out of the water on your right. We are laid back and a little louder than the rest of the block, so don't expect the stuffy La Jolla feel at Jose's. From the kitchen, you'll find all the traditional dishes you'd expect from an authentic Mexican kitchen but with a personal touch from our Chef Jose Rodriguez, who has been creating delicious dishes for nearly three decades. In the front of the house, you'll share good times with our fun, friendly servers and bartenders who are always here to help lift spirits and provide the catalyst to a good time.

Dive Bar setting. Clean basic menu ; well executed. Chips and salsa to start were very good. Margaritas also very good. Appetizers and entree’s were large and delicious.
Nice alternative to the name in town options.

Can't go to San Diego and surrounding area without finding some good Mexican food. Friends and I were traveling from FL to San Diego and came across this little place while walking around. The margs were great and the tacos were good.

The beer and margaritas flow easily at Jose’s. No stuffiness here. A nice switch from the uber expensive places near by. A little disconcerting that the cute bar tenders all were having multiple shots with customers. That made it feel sketchy. Are they working for tips or shots of tequila?

The atmosphere is fun but the food is lacking great flavor. It's just too American, not authentic Mexican. We came here for a Bridal party and all of us were let down. The service was good, but the food was average.

Jose's of La Jolla: Not your typical Mexican Restaurant!

Recently, we were craving Mexican Food while shopping in La Jolla Villages.
So we decided to try Jose's of La Jolla on Prospect Street.
The atmosphere is more of an casual, English pub than your typical Mexican restaurant.
A fun bar area with plenty of great viewing of Sporting Events (with a good Happy Hour Menu). Plus a quaint little outdoor patio in front - directly on Prospect Street (great for people watching in La Jolla).

Wee enjoyed the guacamole and chips...spicy salsa. Bot the Mahi Grilled Fish Tacos and the crunchy chicken tacos made it a worthwhile stop.

Enjoy!
