We had the tostado supreme and street tacos. It wasn't bad, but didn't seem authentic Mexican. It's what I call American Mexican because I feel they cook it differently. For the street tacos, I got one of each - carnitas, carne asada and chicken. The carnitas and carne asada were good but the chicken unfortunately had no flavor. Was told... More

Shrimp tacos are awesome, but then again almost everything here is. The Sunday Brunch is very good and they load you up with Champagne which is included. So if you have anything to do afterward don't come here because you're going to be too full and lazy to do anything except take a siesta.

Always great service, excellent food and value. Chimichangas are amazing. Plus, they do fundraisers for the schools.

This is our favorite place to eat. We have never had a bad experience. Frequent often- sometimes weekly. We love to celebrate birthdays, graduations, family visits, or just being Friday night. Karaoke on the weekends makes it fun too, not to mention our favorite waiter

If you're looking for amazing Mexican food, look no further. We had to wait a few minutes (very busy Sunday) but we're called within 5 minutes and sat down. We were instantly given chips and salsa (they are DELICIOUS, you will go just for that!) and our orders taken quickly. 15-20 minutes later, their is the food, piping hot! While... More

My wife and I shared a order of chicken fajitas for dinner last Wednesday night. We also ordered two regular blended margaritas. The food, drinks and service was excellent. I have been going to this restaurant for over 20 years and have never been disappointed.

I used to go to Don Jose's often. 20+ YEARS. But since they have closed restaurants, it becomes harder and harder. After not visiting for a couple years I came here on Sunday in late August and loved it so much went to the Montclair location for lunch on Tuesday. I like the service, the atmosphere, the quality and flavor... More

We usually go here for lunch. Their lunch specials are less expensive and quick. The food is good and I prefer it the Mexican Food offered by the larger chains.

Don Jose's is maybe a once in a year stop. Place is nice and clean, service is good, drinks are average and the menu offers a lot of selections - typical Mexican but better than El Torrito. I like the Carne Asada and Camarones
