I was in the neighborhood for other business and didn't want to drive back to my hotel in rush-hour traffic so I stopped here for dinner early in the evening. As a single woman business traveler, I was warmly welcomed which was very nice. In fact the waitress even gave me an extra chair to put my bags on while... More

We stumbled upon this place by chance while walking through downtown. It looked like a nice small restaurant, so we gave it a chance. We were not disappointed. We were seated immediately and given a menu. As the name suggest they had all kinds of mexican food to choose from. I ended up with a burrito and my friend a... More

Even though this is a small and somewhat hidden, the service was good. The food was okay. It appears to be a place the locals frequent and that added to the charm.

After being closed for . . . forever . . . Don Pedro's has returned. Same menu, same food, updated and more modern fixtures. Even many of the same wait staff. Good basic Mexican fare.

Loved this little hole in the wall type place. Nicely decorated, super fast service and authentic food. Home made salsa and pepper sauces..

My boyfriend and I eat here at least once every two weeks. Since we always order the same dishes, the waiters put our food order in immediately, first confirming we are ordering the usual. Their food is always consistently delicious and very prompt. Not one complaint. Overall, great customer service and delicious food. Thanks Don Pedros!

I did some extensive research when I was planning on being in San Jose, and found Don Pedro's very well recommended and decided to drop in after I landed at the airport. It's a rustic place made into a wonderful setting, the food and chips were amazing. Once I got my main dish and was enjoying the food, I had... More

I like this place not so much for the food - which isn't bad - but the ambience: when I first moved much of downtown San Jose looked like this little section of Post St., with some great hole-in-the-wall Mexican greasy spoons. The food's decent and more varied than many Mexican restaurants (the specials are posted in Spanish only), and... More

Coming from the UK, I had little experience of Mexican food, but the waiter very kindly and patiently explained the different options, and the food was very good. The atmosphere is very friendly. On the whole, a really nice place to spend an hour.

Fantastic hot salsa! Food was terrific! A little warm, no AC. A taco on alacarte was $3.45. Can't get prices like that in downtown San Jose! Carne Asada and carnitas tacos were so yummy!
