We visited for lunch and I had to send back the chili Colorado dish I ordered. The waitress quickly took care of this and the replacement dish was good!

So apparently the night we went they were celebrating their 44th anniversary with $3 taco and enchilada plate. They were very busy, there were a ton of people waiting outside. We thought uh oh, since we weren't there for the deal, we were there for our regular dinner. The hostess quoted 30 min. Wait. It turned out to be just... More

We were meeting my daughter and her family for Father's Day and was looking at a location that would be mid-way between our homes. We used to go to Don Jose's a lot many years ago and could not remembered why we stopped. Now we know. When I called for reservations, they said they opened at 10:00. They opened at... More

My go to item here is the Seafood Chalupa Salad. Delicious fajita style shrimp on a bed of greens. Essentially a Cobb salad but the meat is bacon and shrimp. When we host family from out of town, this is THE Mexican place we always go to.

Came on a Thursday at 6:30. got seated immediately and chips/salsa were on the table in under 60 seconds. Order for drinks done in 2 minutes. Food served after about 7 minutes. All this SUPER FAST service came in at the cost of food quality. I ordered Arroz con pollo y camaroon (Rice with chicken and shrimp). Pretty hard to... More

This is our go to Mexican restaurant. Everything is delicious. Free chips n salsa. Sign up with their birthday club and get discounts all year round. We never go home hungry after visiting. In fact we usually have leftovers to take home. And we always receive excellent service as well.

This one looks identical and the food was wonderful. We ordered a kids quesadilla right away for my two year old. My mom and I... More
