Good Mexican food

This restaurant was recommended to me by a client as a very reasonably priced Mexican restaurant with good food. I definitely agree. I was really in the mood for good Mexican food and I was not disappointed. I went at night but the restaurant sits right on the shore of the lake and looks like it... read more

My first visit to this restaurant. It came highly recommended and my cousin from Lakeland had heard it was good so she suggested it. We all ordered something different and all of the food was good. The service could have been better. I was the only one who ordered sweet tea (I am from NC originally and I am not... More

Our party of six showed up on Saturday evening without a reservation and it only took about 30 minutes to get a table, so that was nice. I am very spoiled because I spend a lot of time in New Mexico, so my standard is very high. I would say the Mexican food is quite good and above average compared... More

We were so hungry for a good Mexican meal! We did not get it at Don Jose! First, the decor/colors were appropriate for a Mexican restaurant; and the music was what it should be EXCEPT it was so loud that we could not comfortably visit without almost yelling! I suspect that the music was also to blame when our order... More

My first time at this restaurant. Very nice decor and clean. Had lunch and ordered the salmon salad. It was delicious and very fresh. My husband enjoyed his soft tacos. I gave it a 4 because the salmon was a small size in my opinion. We will go back again.

We had a very nice meal. The service was prompt and friendly. The variety of the menu was impressive. A couple of our group had steak items. A bit chewy, but tasty. Prices are reasonable and the kitchen prepares a visually attractive meal. Prices are fair and reasonable. Our first visit, but will eventually return.

Second time we ate here. The service was great. I had a chicken fiatia and the chicken had no flavor, cold and looked like it was cooked 3 hours earlier. The only thing that was good on the plate was the beans. The remainder of the meal was very bland.
