We were so excited to find great Mexican food that others had said was great. We bought the really large margaritas-what a joke-all fruit juice, no alcohol!!!..No buzz there at $16 each!!! the food was ok, the chips were ok, the salsa I really liked

We took family for birthday get together and the food was excellent. The shredded beef taco and beef enchiladas were packed with flavorful meat. The service was good but it does get awfully noisy in the place.

Have been coming here for over 15 years but had not been back for over a year so we decided to give it a try tonight. It was good, but not as great as it used to be. Service was slow and we eventually had to ask for chips and salsa. Only good thing was we used an entertainment book... More

Our favorite place for Mexican food. Lived in Calif for 42 years, Retired and moved in 1992. Every time we are in Southern Calif we make it a point to go to Don Joses. Went twice last week while we were staying in Costa Mesa. Same great food with super fast service. You can't beat the combination.
