Over the past few years, Don Quijote’s has become my second kitchen. The offer so much more than just first class service and food. They bring in mariachi bands, jazz bands, and karaoke. The bar is lively but never loud enough to annoy those who...are dining. The do an incredible table-side guacamole which can be customize to your specific taste. The garlic soup is excellent, but the my wife says their tripe soup is the best around. The offer daily specials, one of which being a sampler plate of their incredible appetizers. The pinchos are my favorite entry, but the ropa veija is outstanding. The fajitas come out on a sizzling plate full of onions, peppers, and your choice of steak, chicken, or shrimp. The chimichangas are absolutely perfectly prepared as are the carne asada, chicken cutlets, and paella. Best in miller placeMore

Went for dinner, but not "fast food". Food was good, but not great. Ordered steak medium, it came well done. My wife disappointed. Then waitress came and started clearing plates while we were still eating! We will be stopping at other windmills going forward.

My husband and I had a late Sunday afternoon dinner here, and the food is good, but the service is too quick which makes the whole evening feel rushed. We ordered drinks, and that is another problem: there are no prices listed for their margaritas....Ours were $10.50 each which is not bad, but I have no idea why they do not list the prices. So, we ordered the drinks and were talking and enjoying the chips and salsa when the salads came out. We put the salads to the side and then the entrees appeared. The restaurant needs to let people talk and enjoy their drinks and just sit for a while before bringing all the food out. This has happened before at this restaurant, and next time we go, we won't order until we are ready: we will tell the waiter to come back in 15 minutes and We will sip our drinks. If you order, the food will come out immediately which made us feel like we were being rushed.More

Don Quijote is a good Mexican, for a Mexican restaurant. I use to live in Oaxac, Mexico and we travel there all the time. There is nothing like REAL Mexican food, especially from Oaxaca. Most Mexican restaurants cater to the American taste, but some come...close. Don Q. is one that is if you steer away from the typical fare. Try it. Plus the atmosphere is real nice.More

Made plans to have dinner there with friends Friday night but only one table for four was available. It was in the bar area where a musical combo was playing far too loud. A heavily amplified electric guitar coupled with a conga drum produced such...a loud volume that it was impossible to carry on a conversation. We left and went to a nearby Italian restaurant. I'll try Don Quijote another time when they don't have music. My last visit there featured a small musical group walking around the place and stopping at tables. A much better plan!More

The guacamole was made table side and was the best I have ever eaten. The margaritas were good but, I ordered a Cadillac Margarita which is top shelf and they served it in a plastic cheapy margarita glass, was not impressed but, enjoyed the food...and the service was good.More

Don quijotes Latin restaurant serves large portions of delicious food that one could expect to find in Columbia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, or Ecuador. On certain nights, they bring in jazz musicians, guitarists, or karaoke. The bartenders take care of their clients with amazing specials. Again,...the food is out of this world delicious.More

Went last night with our best friends for a fun filled and delicious dinner meal at this place. The food was excellent with many pages of Mexican food varied so well that we all had so much food that was delicious and yet nearly the...same ingirdients including cheese, meat and chicken plus refried beans and salad. Margaritas were powerful and delicious. The entertainment made it a perfect night. If you want to participate, the singer/guitar player will visit your table and get you so happily sing along with him. He has a number of excellent and funny songs worth singing along with. Price was very fair and not at all expensive. Desert was a perfect end to a fine meal.More
