Jose and Sons—a Mexican restaurant opened in 2013 by a set of brothers with a family history of owning popular Mexican eateries in the Raleigh area—has truly made a name of its own in recent years. Located in downtown Raleigh's Warehouse District, the heavily Southern-influenced restaurant (roosters and milk jugs adorn walls and shelves) is known for its warm, rustic atmosphere and its feast-worthy food.

Our #visitRaleigh photo of the week captures that well. Instagram user @paperyrain indulged in what's called The Picnic, a family-style meal of grilled meats, seasonal vegetables, market greens and salsas. 

A tip for visitors: hop just a few steps over to Crank Arm Brewing, Videri Chocolate Factory and Boxcar Bar + Arcade to make a full night of things.
