“Not as great as it used to be :(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Have been coming here for over 15 years but had not been back for over a year so we decided to give it a try tonight. It was good, but not as great as it used to be. Service was slow and we eventually had to ask for chips and salsa. Only good thing was we used an entertainment book coupon so it was Buy one get one. Chips and Salsa were the highlight of the meal...so maybe just come here for happy hour? My combo plate had sat under the broiler for too long as my rice was over cooked and the beans were very dried out. There are better local places to try.

“BEST IN THE WEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Our favorite place for Mexican food. Lived in Calif for 42 years, Retired and moved in 1992. Every time we are in Southern Calif we make it a point to go to Don Joses. Went twice last week while we were staying in Costa Mesa. Same great food with super fast service. You can't beat the combination.
