Jose's in Cambridge

This little place in the middle of nowhere is surprisingly inviting with it's bright neon open sign, colorful decorations, and cozy atmosphere. Packed on Monday night. Busy staff running between rooms, but accommodating (switched tv to Olympics).

Specialty drink, sangrita, tequilla, and lime juice. Served on the rocks with spicy bite. House margarita was fine.

Chips and salsa (can choose, mild, medium, hot). Seemed homemade. Salsa not chunky, more saucy. Chips were just okay.

Two entrees: chimichanga with ground beef and baked cheese chili rellenos. Both with side of rice and tasty black beens. Chimichanga had nice beef flavor but overpowered by all the rice and beans everywhere. Needed to supplement with large quantities of medium salsa.

Chili rellenos, otoh were delicious due to its tangy chili verde salsa which I could have eaten with a spoon, unfortunately there was not much of it.

Bit more expensive for mex/tex-mex than expected but earned a second trip.

More chizowing to come...
