Description: Treat yourself to the Taste of the Puerto Rican cuisine. The new world cuisine of the Caribbean, with its emphasis on only the freshest ingredients and seasonings, offers an exciting blend of taste sensations. Puerto Rican cuisine has been influenced by many culinary disciplines, including European, African, and Asian to name a few. Enjoy the taste of our original mashed plantain stuffed with shrimp or chicken or just our onion beef steak with rice and beams as a sample of our great variety of Puerto Rican dishes.

“Unexpected Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

We went to Don Jose's for two different meals. It was recommended to us as a good place to get an American breakfast. We went for breakfast and it was good but the dinner we had was really surprising. I had the chicken mofongo which was very moist and flavored very well. My daughter had the fried chicken with beans and rice and my boyfriend had a Puerto Rican sandwich. Once he had a taste of both of our dishes, he told us he regretted his choice! His sandwich was good but it was a sandwich and our meals were very authentic and worth another trip.

“Good local cuisine at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2011

We called in here @ midnight after a late bio bay kayaking tour. We were pleasantly surprised. Food was hot and tasty and was delivered reasonably quickly. There is a good range for a family - with local food as well as stables such as burgers and sandwiches.
