While I didn't travel to Homer for Mexican food I got tired of regular road food. My chili rellenos /taco combo platter was a good change of pace in aa sit-down waitress-service restaurant. The price was very reasonable for Alaska.

This is not a large restaurant but one that excels on service. Food was very good. It was the most reasonable place not for breakfast that we found.

The service at Don Jose's is top notch and so are their margaritas. Many tequilas to choose from. This is our go to place for a snack before crossing the street for a movie.

We stopped in on a cold windy evening in May for guacamole and french fries with limonada (lemonade and mineral water). Super gals serving us and generous servings. Tapas for dinner :)

This restaurant has been in Homer for about 50 years, and has classic Mexican selections married to local ingredients! Service was attentive and personable.

We eat here often as we live in Homer. Staff is friendly and food is always great. We recommend the Fajita with shrimp, chicken and steak. My wife and I split this meal and it is plenty of food.
