You will love the experience in this neat little place. Authentic Mexican food cooked by the owner. This is a small place in a small town so if it is busy, don't expect quick service. Instead, relax and enjoy the slower pace, interesting people, and delicious food.

Okay, it's not like I'm a world traveler or anything, but La Casa de Jose is easily my favorite Mexican restaurant anywhere. I have driven from Knoxville, TN, to eat here. Wife and son agree. Excellent food. Excellent portion sizes. Good service. We've tried many menu items. Never disappointed. I personally recommend the standard burrito. Hope to return soon.

I have to admit I would not have expected a tiny town in KY to be home to a good authentic Mexican restaurant but was happy to find one. Food was delicious (I ate there several times between my two visits to Wilmore) plentiful and very reasonably priced. Service is quick and friendly. The restaurant is simply appointed but clean...

Jose is a great guy, and serves great food. Not your typical cookie cutter Mexican restaurant. Items cooked fresh, unique offerings. I recommend the "Jose's Special" - excellent!

My wife and I took a lunch break and ate at Jose's. The salsa is our absolutely favorite and the chips are clearly hand-made. We both got the chicken flautas and they were fantastic. Two lunches for less than $12 - can't beat it!

Outstanding Mexican restaurant. The owner is a great chef and treats you like family. My wife and I ate there twice in two days. My daughter will be attending Asbury and we intend to eat there every time we visit her.

There are not many places to choose from for dining in Wilmore but this one was really good. Walked down Main Street to find La Casa de Jose as a quaint establishment on a quiet street. The chips were crispy and the salsa had a mild and tasty heat. Ordered the chicken tacos. The service was fast. The food was... More

Service was friendly, the place clean and festively decorated. The lunch size margarita was only $1.99 and really hit the spot!! Our food arrived quickly and was DELICIOUS! The chicken in my taco salad was basically a large breast piece, and the beef in my friends meal was not greasy like at other places! Very very tasty!!!

The owner, Jose, is involved in every aspect of his restaurant. I have never been there when he was not present. Usually he takes our order himself. Therefore, the food is always freshly cooked. Sometimes this means waiting a while if there are a lot of people, but it is worth the wait. The food is excellent - have never... More

You may not know about this fantastic little place unless you are a local. Jose's has consistently amazing food and wonderfully kind service. This is the epitome of small town America going international.
