We ate at Cafe Josè as a family for dinner. Our young kids loved they were able to have breakfast for dinner. They really enjoyed their French toast and pancakes. Meanwhile, they serve delicious Mexican food. I strongly recommend the shredded beef chimichanga. The slow...roasted shredded beef is full of flavor. Cafe Josè is one of those hole in the wall restaurants we'll want to make a tradition visiting as a family. Laycee, our waitress, was fantastic and always made sure our needs were met with a smile.More

The previous reviews were good, so after a morning hike,we decided to try it out for breakfast. We arrived around 9:30 and were greeted and seated quickly. We were offered drinks and they were delivered to the table immediately. That is where everything stopped. We...had finished a cup of coffee and still had not been greeted by our server, Christy, and obviously our order had not been taken. A young man going around with coffee offered us more coffee and we continued to wait. Finally our server came and took our order, and we continued to wait. Our breakfast finally came, delivered by Christy, and that was the last we saw of her until much later when we needed a bill. I can’t really say the service was bad as there just was no service. Now for the food. I had French toast....if you are going to serve cold butter, the French toast had better be hot enough to melt it...it was not. My husband had country fried potatoes with his breakfast and said he had never had such tasteless potatoes. His breakfast also came with toast, but Christy did not bring any jelly. As she never returned, we flagged someone down and they delivered the jelly quickly. The restaurant was not overly busy, so I can’t justify our lack of service in any way. I believe our food sat for a long time before it was brought to the table. With all the positive reviews, perhaps this was an off day so I am giving the place the benefit of the doubt and being very generous by giving it a 3; however, won’t take a chance on eating here again.More

The service was was outstanding, cheerful, and very welcoming. So, to sum up, excellent food,...fantastic service, and such a welcoming, fun place to eat! Don’t pass it up - you’ll love it! ❤️More

My wife and I have been regulars at Jose's for years. Christy must have waited on us dozens of times. Of All those times we have never experienced anything but the best most exemplary service. Christy has always been very friendly and an excellent waitress...and manager. Everyone we have talked to in Sedona both locals and visitors say the same thing. Where the criticisms of Christy come from we have no idea. Perhaps there was some misunderstanding. Whatever the case, the criticisms of Christy are inaccurate and in our view very unfair.More

We enjoyed this locally owned restaurant! The huevos rancheros was a great breakfast and we have to take half of it home. Super yummy. Super friendly staff. I would defiantly recommend this to others!

Cafe Jose has a good price value to food quality. The have very friendly and welcoming wait staff. The menu has a good selection of Mexican and American fare. This is a good Mexican diner with excellent food in large portions at a reasonable cost....We had a chicken fajita and chicken chimichanga. Both were excellent! We had way to much to eat at one setting. It heated up well and tasted great even two days later. There are so many places to dine in Sedona. If you’re looking for a non-tourist / local place to eat, Cafe Jose’s is a very good choice.More

I’ve been coming here for some time now and the customer service is amazing. But..... Today we got the manager as our waitress and she was soooo rude. She needs to be replaced with someone who has better customer service. Muy mala vibra con esa...loca malcriada .More

The food was amazing, and so were the waitstaff. However the manager KRISTIE or CHRISTIE or whatever her name is. Very very rude. Whoever hired her, needs to replace her asap. Very poor business decision as customer service is king and she clearly lacks that...skill.More
