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.

We ate at Don Jose's twice while in Homer and both times we were pleasantly surprised. Great food and friendly service. The extra hot sauce is the best if you like spicey and the burrito is huge. When you get tired of eating fish, try this restaurant. Muy bueno!

If you're in the mood for Mexican food while you're in Alaska, (why, I can't imagine), then Don Jose's is you only choice. Located in Homer, it's easy to find. Prices are average and so is the food.

We are from Arizona where we are use to very authentic Mexican food yet we were not disappointed at all. Great Margaritas, full bar, and great options on the menu!
