Mes Patrio
Hola Season 5!
Is summer over?  No worries!  September always brings new beginnings and we’re on track  to introduce “La Cantina” in the refurbished downstairs salon and kick off Season 5 in Tu Casa en Vallarta – No Way José! on Sunday, September 15.  Escape the heat and relax in AC comfort in La Cantina, our

 full-service bar.  Our award-winning NWJ! menu opens back on the Terrace in October.  See below for more details.


September never had such an exciting welcome as this month in Vallarta!  From an eagerly anticipated title boxing match to hot rockers in D.F., from a new species of magnolia discovered and named after our piece of paradise to the reprise of San Sebastian’s Hot Air Balloon Festival, September has lots to see, do and enjoy.


We cannot be more excited to welcome you back home with open arms!


 See you soon in Tu Casa in Vallarta – No Way José!.


Abrazos – Julie, José Alfredo and the entire NWJ! Team

Introducing….the NWJ! Cantina! viva mexico


Each year on the night of September 15, the President of Mexico rings the bell of the National Palace in Mexico City. After the ringing of the bell, he repeats a cry of patriotism (El Grito Mexicano) based upon the “Grito de Dolores,” with the names of the important heroes of the Mexican War of Independence and ending with the threefold shout of ¡Viva México! from the balcony of the palace to the assembled crowd in the Plaza de la Constitución, or Zócalo, one of the world’s largest public plazas.


Come and live this most patriotic and festive of all Mexican holidays at No Way José! as we open our doors to usher in Season 5 in yet another year of helping create memories in one of the most beautiful places in the world – the ever-amazing Puerto Vallarta. 


La Cantina, with AC comfort, will be open for full bar service, including new bar snacks from 12:00 noon to 12:00 midnight.  Complimentary botanas every Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4:00 p.m.  The Terrace restaurant opens on October 15.  


Join us for el “El Grito Mexicano” and cure that Canelo/Mayweather hangover on Sunday, September 15:


  • 2×1 beer and national cocktails all day.
  • 12:00 – 4:00 pm – Complimentary botana specials
  • 6:00 – 7:30 pm – Mexican Loteria
  • 7:30 – 9:30 pm – Musica en vivo
  • 9:30 – 10:30 pm – Mariachi & Mexican Piñata
  • 11:00 pm – El Grito
Viva Mexico!

Delivering on Our Promise…


Client Testimonial:

From Michael R., Laverne, CA


Our friends had always told us about No Way Jose! but, for one reason or another, we never got around to going there. On this trip, we finally made it and I am sorry we did not go there sooner. The food is excellent and is only equaled by the service. The food is fresh, not overly seasoned and cooked to perfection. The drinks are very good and they offer a good wine selection. Our servers were attentive, respectful and always had smiles on their faces. And all of this comes at very affordable prices. On your next trip, just like us, you need to include No Way Jose! on your list of restaurants to visit.


Gracias, Michael!
