Our favorite meal are the fajitas. Excellent! Great chips and salsa. A classic family restaurant with secret family recipes.

The salsa tastes like it came out of a can (not fresh at all),but the mexican food is good (not great). Service is very good. Prices with discount coupons are reasonable.

We have been going to Don Jose's for years. We always order the tostado & enchilada combo, even though it is no longer on the menu.

I love this place for Mexican food. They give you endless chips that are always hot, thin and delicious. The food is fresh and hot always. Its great for large groups and just a table for 2.

The drinks were excellent. You get plenty of food for the price. The atmosphere was great. Good place to take the family, or just to go out on a date for drinks.

Don Jose's is a Mexican amongst quite a few Mexican restaurants in Tustin. The food is of good quality and the prices are keen. The portions are generous, especially the great bowl of tortillas that come before the meal. A great meal out, especially with hungry teenagers!

Couples night out went swimmingly. Margaritas and Mexican food are done right here. As if the food and gigantic margaritas were not enough we had great service from a waiter who had the single best mustache any of us have encountered in our lives. Chips are warm, salsa is fresh and you will have a good time

We occasionally just want to have a nice relaxing meal on short notice, with no reservations to worry about. Don Jose's in Tustin is normally at the top of our short list. We can stop by almost anytime, whether it is a lunch or dinner, and typically get seated immediately. There are times when there is a short wait for... More

Don Jose has good Mexican food. The tacos are terrific and the Chile Relenos are also very good. The salsa is disappointing. It is very mild for those that like that, but it appears to come out of a container and is not fresh. We would visit a lot more often with fresh salsa like other similar Mexican restaurants serve.

They have great mexican food. The combo Fajita is my favorite. The shrimp is sweet and tender. I also enjoy the chili rellenos.
