I have been enjoying the food at Don Jose's in Alamo for many years. We took our kids there when they were young and now the kids are grown up! The service is great and the salsa, guacamole and chips are reliably delicious. While I have tried several dishes my favorite is the cheese enchiladas with onions and verde sauce.... More

It's been in Alamo for many years. Good food, good service, good margaritas. We've had chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, everything. All good.

We were promptly greeted and seated. Moments later chips and fresh salsa arrived, which was quite good. I'm glad the salsa wasn't hot because or drink order took quite some time and this didn't include any bar drinks. Our meals were okay. The top of mine was quite dry, especially the rice. We went long periods of time without drink... More

We arrived slightly ahead of the lunch crowd and were seated promptly. The food here is considerably more authentic than one might expect and the portions are quite large. My wife and elder... More

My first stop after a 15 hour trip to the states. It was nice to have a good meal and to relax. Food was great service was ok but all together far better that the average British restaurant performs.
