Our first time & we will definitely be coming back. Very friendly staff & delicious food. Prices are reasonable, especially for the amount of food you get!

This place did a good job at running a family of 7 people away! We were treated with rudeness and will Never go back. We felt discriminated against and while leaving, we saw very HUGE rats (not inside), but running around the back door of the restaurant. NEVER GOING BACK!

Don José is a typical Mexican restaurant. The welcome is warm as if you were a long gone friend. The interior is in warm colours. Of course you first start with fresh taco chips and two sauces.

We went out on Easter Sunday to find a place to eat. Most were closed, we wanted Mexican, and Don Jose was the only one we could find open. We don't normally eat here, but we enjoyed our meal and service was good.

Everyone at Don Jose is great; they are friendly and they remember their regulars. The food is always delicious and have never had issues with the order being incorrect. However, there has been one night when the staff was off their game. I was disappointed that night, but that have stepped it back up.

I had eaten here some years ago and enjoyed it. Returned tonight as the restaurant I was headed to was closed for vacation (what is it about this town?). I was greeted pleasantly and immediately shown to a table. Their happy hour drafts should help bring folks through the door.The food will have them return. Having worked in Mexico several... More
