Food was just OK. Lunch w 7. Delivered the wrong order to two of us. Nothing crazy good. Salsa w chips was the best of the meals. Wouldn't go out of my way to go back. I like non chains. They seem to try harder.

I do not normally like Mexican food but Don Jose is the exception. We eat there for sure on Cinco Di Mayo. We wear our Mexican Hats and bring our own Caronas and tequila. They supply the margarita mix and Mariachi band. I usually get...More
