Food is very good but their "special" plates are overpriced. Chips and salsa are good most of the time. Salsa taste varies. They have a happy hour but the margaritas are weak and sometimes watered down..pay for better tequila for a decent drink.

Great food and staff. Ask for Dennis. He's the best! I ordered the fried chicken salad, perfect. Their chips and salsa are the best in town.

I tried one of the new items on the menu suggested by our awesome waiter, Dennis. If you come during lunch, ask for him.

I've been dinning at Don Jose's restaurants since they opened in a small building here in Ennis, TX. My 25 year old nephew was in highchair. Now we are taking his 4 year old with us to dine. If the owner, Gustavo, happens to be onsite, you will find him a delight! Food is consistently good.

At one time, Don Jose's had the best Mexican food in town. Hot, fresh, quick, and great tasting. Something has happened to Don Jose's over the years. The food is nothing to write home about, the service is something to complain about, and the general value has just gone down. I hope that the restaurant will turn around and get... More

We eat here often. We especially like the nacho, the nachos regulars are our favorite. The chicken Quesada is also very good. We also thing their flan is really great.

I went in on July 4th and ordered fajitas. While I waited for the food, I noticed quite a few flies at my booth. I went to the bar and asked the bartender for a flyswatter, thinking that he would do something about the problem, but instead he found a swatter and delivered it to my table. He seemed embarrassed... More

This is a great place to eat. There is rarely a wait for seating. The service is somewhat unpredictable. It can be great and order served promptly but other times it can be very slow. This doesn't seem to be effected by how busy it is. The chili con queso is awesome!

Very crowded so service was slow. The food was excellent. Some of the best Tex-Mex I have ever had. The atmosphere was nice and all the servers were trying their best. We were there for lunch and I was driving but I would have loved to have tried one of their famous margaritas. We are glad we stopped on our... More
