No Way Jose’s isn’t just an area favorite, it’s a must-eat every time you visit the area. For the Mexican food lover in all of us, No Way Jose’s has it all.

While some are falling down on the job, No Way Jose’s has excelled at creating a semi-authentic restaurant atmosphere, from the traditional stucco exterior with rounded architectural features to traditional and unique central american themed interior decorations ranging from Moroccan tile features to hay thatched ‘roofing’ hovering over aged brick interior walls, this place is a delight for the eyes as well as the stomach.

Starting with their famous, house-made salsa, you’ll quickly want to start chowing down on some warm queso cheese dip while you’re waiting on the main course to arrive. Are chips and dip a meal in and of themselves? I think so.

If you’re not sure what to pick, here are a few suggestions that we love:

Steak & Chicken Fajitas
A classic no? Freshly fried steak and chicken with sauteed onions, peppers, and of course an authentic blend of spices and seasonings.

Burrito Especia
Your choice of shredded beef or chicken. Smothered in ranchero sauce and sour cream. Served with rice, refried beans, lettuce & tomato.

The Outrageous
It really is. Outrageous that is. Their biggest stuffed burrito comes loaded with beans, rice, shredded beef, shredded chicken, ground beef, cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo, smothered in ranchero sauce, avocado sauce, and sour cream.

Arroz con Pollo
Simplicity meets delicious. Strips of chicken breast over a bed of Mexican rice, and refried beans covered with cheese dip.

With multiple locations in the area, No Way Jose’s is a great choice when you’re looking to get your carb fix.

Insider Tip:
When ordering the Arroz con Pollo, add fajita vegetables to it to add a nice flavor enhancement to this classic Latino dish.
