A tortilla makes a handy mouse pad, an acceptable patch for stiff denim jeans, and, if you draw a face on it, an ideal companion on fishing trips. But there are many other uses for it, as today's Groupon proves: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare at José's Mexican Restaurant in Cambridge.

José's menu lets you authentically tour Mexico without having to untether your winged burro from its cage in your attic. José's homemade jalapeño poppers ($5.95) appetizer heaves a heaping helping of heat on the tongue, and entrees run the gastronomic gamut of Mexican fare, including the chicken enchilada with a mole negro of chiles, spices, tortillas, and chocolate ($10.95), and the bursting-with-beef Super Burrito ($10.95), also stuffed with beans, rice, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and salsa. Doña Reyna's Chile Rellenos—poblano peppers stuffed with your choice of cheese ($10.95), chicken ($11.95), shredded or ground beef ($11.95), steak ($12.95), or shrimp ($13.95)—are the house specialty, crafted from the chef's mother's recipe and containing valuable life advice in each bite. José's non-Mexican fare also hits the toro's-eye, with the barbecue shrimp ($14.95) sure to satisfy sailors on shore leave after long voyages on barbecue seas.

Un Groupon can be used for every dos personas, so treat a first date or mysterious drifter to the rustically vibrant Mexican art of José's bright, colorful décor, as well as its friendly staff of comida couriers.


Boston magazine featured José's Mexican Restaurant in its 2004 Best of Boston restaurant list. While diners have varied opinions about the service, the food gets consistently rave reviews. Citysearchers give it an average of four stars, Yelpers give it an average of 3.5, and 80% of Urbanspooners like it.

José's Mexican Restaurant

Jose's Mexican Restaurant is truly a family operation. At any given time, you might find mom in the kitchen making tamales; dad taking inventory; or brothers and cousins greeting visitors and waiting tables. That unshakeable familial structure stems from the restaurant's Mexican roots—roots that also instilled Jose's chefs with an appreciation for fresh, local ingredients and time-honored cooking traditions. Guests reap the benefits of Jose's solidarity while sipping on margaritas and biting into classic dishes, such as the tamales del dia, featuring a pair of tamales steamed in corn husks and packed with different fillings each day.

Customer Reviews

The drinks were great, and the food was pretty good.

We came to Cambridge from NY to visit our friends for the long weekend. They have been going to Jose's for a while and suggested we all go for dinner. We had a party of 9 consisting of 2 kids, 3 teenagers, and 4 adults. The restaurant was busy and even though the upstairs was not available for seating the host quickly made arrangements to accommodate both families to be seated together upstairs. This was especially nice since we had the room all to ourselves and we could enjoy the space and easily catch up with each other. The service was great and the food was excellent .. Guacamole was very good and the margaritas were just delicious to name a few... Everyone in the party including the kids and teenagers enjoyed their entrées. We are looking forward to another great night at Jose's when we come back again to visit with our friends! Thanks Jose's for a wonderful experience!
