“A Bad Choice”
Reviewed May 11, 2006

There are lots of good Mexican restaurants in Anchorage. Don Jose's is not one of them. The refried beans are tasteless and runny--as if from a pre-mix. I'm not sure where they get their chicken meat from, but it was rubbery and overcooked. You would also expect the chips to be good in a Mexican restaurant--think again!

Also, the service was not very friendly. This may be a restaraunt that caters mostly to locals and doesn't welcome visitors. That was certainly my impression. There are better Mexican restaurants in Anchorage, even the fast food Mexican places have fresher ingredients, better food, and friendlier service than this sit-down restaurant.

Years ago, this restaurant was good. Today, it's a dive.
