The menu is good and the food is excellent. Great meal for the price and the service is excellent. No waiting. Sop and enjoy the food and have a relaxing meal together with a great mexican beer like Tekate. Will always eat there when in the area

There were 4 of us. Two had the chicken enchiladas, I had the chili relleno/enchilada combo and my wife has the beef fajitas. The fajita meat did taste good, but the rest of the food was bland, including the salsa. I forgot how many times I sprinkled my food with salt, just to get a little flavor. I would not... More

This Mexican restaurant has a great variety of dishes - and all are really good! The shrimp cocktail is the best ever! Julio also makes the best margarita in Palestine - this is a restaurant to enjoy often as it has consistently great food!

Good menu selection. The food has always been delivered in a decent time interval, chips and salsa to munch while waiting. Meat is grilled nicely - not overcooked. Never had a bad meal. The wait staff is very pleasant and keep coming back during the meal to see if the drinks need to be refilled.

Loved the fresh food they provide, the voucher from next door hotel has added value to the service. The server ( Julio ) was excellent, gave us many different options for my pickkkki husband.

A stop everytime we are in Palestine. The best fajitas and the absolute best margaritas in town. Chips, salsa, queso, and nachos are good, too.

If you want some really great Mexican food, then Don Jose's is the place! Unlike El Toro's, Don Jose's staff prides themselves on having great food, great service and great values and portions! Never a mediocre meal. The food is hot and fresh and their salsa is always awesome! They have daily specials, and they're always serving with a smile.... More

They change the name to DON MICHAEL, but the food is always good, as well as the service. I read some of the reviews and I don't get it. I live in the area, we have eaten there,over the years, over 50 times, it has always been very good. In my opinion it is the best Mexican in the area.
