FUUD: Jose’s Mexican Cafe & Cantina

Share Button

By about the fifth mile, I knew exactly what I wanted.

An icy margarita. In a pitcher.

So the plan was, after we survived the eight-mile Great Aloha Run on Monday, we were heading to Jose’s Mexican Cafe & Cantina in Kaimuki for margaritas. I mean, lunch.

So here’s what we ate:

Wow. Those pictures make me hungry. Everything--even the cold chimichanga--looks good. It's a shame they couldn't get it right the second time! Even so, this makes me want to go there next time I'm on O'ahu.

Hello Cat!
Fuud pixs Friday!
I haven't been there in years.
Have a great weekend!


Aaarrriiibbbaaa! Fuud Pix! Tenks! It has been awhile since going there last. A good standby when craving Tex-Mex.


I haven't been to Jose's in years, like maybe 20 years. But after seeing that shot of the Macho Nachos, I may have to pay a visit.
