We went for dinner a few weeks ago, my fiance had their roasted chicken and absolutely loved it. Mine wasn't so memorable because I can't even tell you what I got. The only thing I know that I got was aggravated. Very, very slow service. Some of the worst I've had. I would probably do take out for the chicken... More

I visit the Don Alex Restaurant a couple times a year. They are never a let down. The last time I was there, the food was great, atmosphere is great, and not to mention some of the waitresses they have are awsome to look at.

I visited this restaurant with a friend. My order was for seafood fried rice Peruvian style. It was excellent and there was plenty of it. My friend ordered a steak dish but the steak was about as thin as luncheon meat and tough as leather. I think you are best served by sticking to seafood and chicken. The prices are... More
