At Don Jose’s in Homer I enjoyed our visit last evening. It was serene and nice to have some special time with my bride. The staff was attentive and kind and courteous and helpful for me since I have vision challenges and cannot read the menu. Patient to remind me of the various types of cooking and flavors, I chose...

My husband and I head to the Kenai Don Jose's and we truly do enjoy the food, the service and the atmosphere. I have been there a dozen times throughout the last few years and never have I had a complaint. Unusual for me being a professional in the food service business once, I am a very picky and difficult... More

We stopped here during our two day stay in Homer. The food was good if somewhat typical Mexican food. Nothing fancy but the service was pretty good and the prices fair.

I had the best pizza from here. It was called the chef's mistake. Crazy that it came from a Mexican restaurant but, that's Homer for you!

This was my first visit to Don Jose's in Homer but its sister restaurant in Anchorage is highly regarded. I cannot say the same about the Homer branch. I had what may have been the worst margarita I have ever drunk. It tasted as if it had carbonation in it. I wondered if it was lemon-lime soda. I got no... More

Pleasant, clean. Food was very good. Price was very fair. Too much food for my appetite. Tamales, one of my favorite, were excellent.

I'm from South Texas so maybe I'm being bias, but this "Mexican food" is equivalent to the cheap stuff where I'm from. Unless you like runny beans, cheap rice, and taco bell meat I'd avoid this one.

Don Jose does a nice job, but it is really just another Mexican restaurant. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. The service was good as well.
