Murfreesboro, the melting pot of Tennessee, is home to many different people from not only the United States but the world.
Along with a wide assortment of people, Murfreesboro is also home to a wide variety of foods, including the ever-popular Tex-Mex.
Tex-Mex is an umbrella term used to describe the category of American-Mexican food, and it varies depending on where you are.
About a year ago, Murfreesboro was introduced to a new restaurant that specializes in Tex-Mex.
OK Jose, run by Sergio Romo, is located at 2804 S. Rutherford Blvd. in the Wal-Mart shopping center, just a stones throw away from Middle Tennessee State University.
“We are happy to serve Murfreesboro,” Roma said. “We also strive to make our customers happy, and we just want everyone to know that we are here to serve.”
Romo said OK Jose is a fun, family oriented place to simply relax. Along with some of the best Tex-Mex Murfreesboro has to offer, Ok Jose also is in the business of entertainment with karaoke twice a week on Thursdays and Saturdays from 8 p.m. till 11 p.m.
Since the opening of Ok Jose, Romo said the restaurant has had many good times but is hoping to expand his clientele in the near future.
Ok Jose offers a wide variety on its menu with something that is sure to fit everyone.
“All of our food is made fresh daily, so we guarantee a fresh meal and satisfied taste buds every visit,” Romo said.
If you stop by and need a suggestion on dinner, order the signature dish Potato De Luxe.
The Potato De Luxe is a baked potato, but it’s not just your ordinary baked potato. This potato is fit for a king or queen. It is piled high with cuts of steak, shrimp and bacon before cheese is drizzled on top, along with sour cream. And behold, you have a masterpiece.
If an extra kick is what you crave, Ok Jose offers fresh made jalapeno sauce. It is a must have, no matter what you order.
Ok Jose also offers deals daily, including $.99 tacos, $1.99 kid’s meals, $.99 drafts and many more.
“We really would like to reach out to the MTSU community more,” Roma said, adding the restaurant offers a 15 percent discount to all MTSU students who have a valid school identification card.
So, whether you are needing to study for a big exam or take the kids out for an affordable treat, Ok Jose is a great choice.
