great food for a good price. Jose and Tony's is a great neighborhood joint. I have been going there for over 10 years and never had bad food or service. You get quality food for a reasonable price.
Bad service, Bad Food..
I can?t believe that anybody could possibly write a positive review of this place that calls itself a Mexican Restaurant. I saw a review that said ?Fast Mexican Food for the Easily Satisfied?. I am evidently not easily satisfied!!! When I spend over $30 on a dinner I expect a little more than paper plates and plastic ware.
The service was terrible. Me and my fiancee were told that our orders were ?Interesting? after we ordered a steak quesadilla and a burrito with extra cheese. After waiting for 20 minutes I realized that we were missing something that is in my experience pretty common in most Mexican Restaurants--Chips and Salsa. When I asked the girl at the ordering stall if we were to receive complimentary chips and salsa or if they were extra, she looked at me very confused like and asked do you mean with cheese? After brief silence, I told her that I just wanted the chips and salsa, and she acted very confused like, as to say why would you come to a Mexican Restaurant and order such a thing? Then she charged me $3 for bagged, stale chips and mediocre salsa.
Then when we finally got our meal we were briefly amazed that they were on paper plates and that the quality of the food was slightly better than Taco Bell or QDoba.
Worst ever.. This is the worst Mexican food I have ever eaten. I paid $6.00 for something I could have got at Taco Bell. Both the chicken and beef were overcooked (and by overcooked I mean sitting on a stove cooking for 12 hours), everything was DRENCHED in cheese and some disgusting sauce...and this place can't even spring for real plates or utensils...or even MENUS...I will never eat here again and seriously wish I could get my six bucks back.
GREAT WINGS!. Jose and Tony's is a great neighborhood/bar eatery. Most of the entries have been about the mexican food..........which is good too........................but if you haven't tried their wings, you are definitely missing out!!!!!
how did this place get an 8.8?. When I first moved to Pittsburgh a year and a half ago from Los Angeles, one of my co-workers told me to try Jose and Tony's for some great Mexican food. I went not long after and was bitterly disappointed. I am all for hole-in-the-wall places; in fact, I often think they have better food. But the best way I can explain Jose & Tony's on the night I went was it was 2 white guys and a jar of cheese whiz. Maybe I am spoiled growing up in a predominently Mexican city where the food was amazing, but I haven't found anything comparible to me in this town and this place was the least satisfying of all. Very bland and uninteresting. I don't feel it should not be a top 10 Mexican restaurant in Pittsburgh (but perhaps that is because there are only about 10 Mexican restaurants in Pittsburgh to begin with!) Save your money and go to El Campesino, La Fiesta, or Old Mexico of Washington. They are vastly better options.
Fast Mexican food for the easily satisfied..
Hardly a border town burrito stop, Jose & Tony's is a two-faced Mexican restaurant. The first room is picnic tabled where patrons walk up to the counter, scan the menu on the wall and order. Then either sit or take your order number to the bar side that features two TVs and enough Miller Beer paraphernalia to make a college kid jealous. (There's also a big-screen television in the first room.)
The burrito deluxe was thick and choked full of ground beef, topped with lettuce and tomato and smothered with a sour cream sauce. The soft taco is a better pick than the hard taco. The nachos were topped with mild jalapenos, cheese and taco sauce. Mexican beer is well-represented with Dos Equis, Corona and Tecate all in bottles.
Best Margarita in the Burg. Jose and Tony's is a well known landmark in the Mt Lebanon/Dormont area. The atmosphere,food, and staff are great. The food is more of a Tex Mex and they also have other nonmexican entrees. Off to the bar you go to enjoy a wonderful margarita or one of there many mexican beers. I would have to say overall that everyone should experience Jose and Tony's aleast once in their life. I have been doing so for 20 years.
Paully48. I've been going to Jose & Tonys since 1971 and think it is REALLY GOOD. Some may say, not authentic Mexican BUT for the money very good!
Best Of. Jose & Tony's was originally opened by Steve Risen (former KQV rock dj). He only owned it for a short time then it was bought by two Pittsburgh Press employees. If you like real mexican food this is the place. The rest is Cal-Mex or Tex-Mex. If you are a real Pittsburgher this is Burg-Mex. Chili that makes you cry when you eat it! - Buritos that are overstuffed with ingredients and flavor. Take the time and eat there tonight!
Great food & bar. The food is GREAT and the staff is friendly. The bar has a "family" feel to it. I used to eat here all the time when I lived in Pittsburgh, now I go whenever we come back.
