Was downtown raleigh this morning and needed GF brunch. Fiction kitchen had 1+hour wait which now I'm glad of because the chicharon and waffles(their answer to chicken and waffles) at Jose and sons was great. Waffles made from corn masa and surprisingly fluffy.

We had a great time. We split small plates. The guacamole was just okay. The beef brisket to be wrapped in corn tortillas was delicious. The corn on the cob was yummy. I also enjoyed their chips and salsa.

We go to Jose & Sons at least once per month and honestly, I'd go more frequently if my coworkers would let me. However, they tell me we have to "pace" ourselves or we could get sick of specific lunch places. Anyway, I've never been disappointed at Jose & Sons and honestly love it. My favorite item on the menu... More

I was looking for a quick meal and this place was ideal. I ordered the Flautas which was lightly fried filled with chicken on romaine lettuc with guacamole, fire-roasted salsa, crema, and queso fresco. It was pretty good. The service was good and the location was easy to get too.

Haven't been here in a while and decided to revisit Jose & Sons. This eatery continues to offer a delicious dining experience. We had a bowl of fresh guacamole, which was fantastic. We decided to share small plates, which was a great idea. We had flautus - the filling was tasty but I'm not sure that I liked the fried... More

Went back on this trip to Raleigh and will go back again. Can get crowed so reservations are best. Try the Spicy Clam appetizer for a real treat.

Went for lunch with a large group of about 40 and there may have been another 10-12 people there. The restaurant probably could have seated another 30 or so. They serve a blend of Mexican & Southern foods so if you are looking for a pure Mexican place, this is not it. I had the Neuske Quesadilla and my wife... More

We serve comfort food that celebrates our forefathers’s Mexican roots and the culinary traditions of the local neighborhood. "On the plate, “Mexican-Southern” translates to dishes such as chicharrones and waffles, and shrimp and masa “grits” with Chihuahua cheese. You can expect to see Southern staples such as okra and collard greens done in new ways, too. An emphasis on local sourcing means that even the chiles rellenos on the traditional side of the menu may not always be made with the standard poblanos." Greg Cox, N&O
