Other reviews indicated BLAND. How right they were. Add very poor service to it and you have been double warned.

We spent the night in Forrest City, Ar and we're looking for a good place to eat. The reviews for Don Jose were so favorable, we had to try it. We shared the steak and chicken fajitas. The single order was plenty for both of us. My wife and I agreed that these were probably the best fajitas we ever... More

It's hard to find a hotel with a restaurant unless it leans towards the luxury category. Don Jose's is in the Days Inn in Forrest City. We didn't stay there but after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and a few other places we decided to try it. Glad we did. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. The food was... More

The service was fast attentive and the place was very clean. The service prebussed the table so we weren't left looking at empty plates. The salsa I loved the salsa it was strong on the cumin giving a wonderful smoky taste. I'd for sure go back the next time I am driving back from Tennessee!

We needed a hotel and a place to have dinner, and as luck would have it, they were in the same place. Mexican restaurants are one of our stand-bys when traveling (the other is Subway - both are ubiquitous) so we felt lucky with this combination. My husband had the chicken poblano fiesta, because he loves poblanos. It was excellent,... More

We came here on vacation passing through from Texas. This was wonderful authentic Mexican food! It was clean and fast service as well as very friendly. Don't let the fact it's inside the days in throw you off from eating here!

As soon as we were seated, we had chips and salsa in front of us and our drink order taken. The chips filled a hole for hungry travelers and we enjoyed the margaritas. Our dinners did not come out together so I sat and waited for my husband to be served. His carnitas were excellent. I ordered the fajita quesadilla... More

If you like authenic Tex Mex food, Don Jose is as GREAT choice and is within walking distance of the Comfort Inn, Hampton Inn, Days Inn and others. Service is fast and friendly and prices are very reasonable. At dinner, for example, you may choose 2 dishes (from a list of 8) for just $6.99 - and it comes with... More

This Don Jose restaurant is owned by the same guy who has one 13 miles down the street but this Wynne Arkansas Don Jose restaurant is not listed in TripAdvisor. We had a Hawaiian fajita which was comprised of pineapple, shrimp, chicken and steak with three tortillas each. I wanted chicken soup but they did not have any. I wanted... More
