We go there regularly whenever mood strikes for Mexican. Our favorite is red snapper, blackened with garlic sauce. It is served with rice and black beans and tortilla chips. Their guacamole is very good as well. Extremely friendly, casual place with colorful, fun decor.

The quality is not the same anymore. I went to lunch on Father's day and I didn't like the food at all. Was very messy in the plate and super went. Seems like was a left over, the chicken inside seems like reused for other foods. Disliked

This charming small restaurant is a great place to enjoy really good Mexican food with great service and interesting décor. The service is excellent, the prices are good and the food is well prepared.

Having been to Mexico and educated on the difference between authentic food and "Tex-Mex" I can whole-heartedly declare that Don Jose's is the REAL DEAL! You walk in and feel welcomed to a café atmosphere reminiscent of Mexico. You are immediately given homemade tortilla chips and spectacular salsa. Ask for their guacamole too - soooo good. The chorizo appy is juicy and just the right spicy. The dinner combo's are a great way to sample all the dishes - get a different one each time or share amongst the table! Me, I love Chimichangas and they KNOW how to make them! My husband loves their soft she'll tacos and fajitas. Everything is AUNTHENTIC tasting (can't say it enough)!
Don't forget to order the Flan for dessert - it's to die for
