“Waited 15 minutes for someone to take my order. Got tired and left.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

There are only 2 restaurants in Duncan. Both continually full of customers.
I don't know if the food was edible or not. Got tired of waiting and left.
The water was ok. Never tried the chips.

“Poor average Mexican food”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

I was expecting typical Mexican food, but this was much worse. Does come with free tomato juice salsa & paste like cheese dip, chips were at least fresh and good. Had to wait a bit on food (they weren't busy) and it was blah and greasy at best. Don't waste your time or money here. Service was slow but waitress was nice.

“Too crowded and loud”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Just not my kind of place... but if you want a loud bar scene with pretty good food, this is it.. Service would probably be better if the servers had room to move between tables.

“Just So-So!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have eaten at Don Jose's Mexican Restaurant in Duncan about five times in the past three months due to a total home remodel. (My kitchen was out of commission for several weeks.)While it is the best Mexican food place here in Duncan, that isn't saying a lot. The queso is not very good, and I refuse to eat the salsa. It just doesn't taste like anything. The tacos and enchiladas are okay, I guess, but my favorite Mexican restaurant in Lawton is a thousand percent better, as is the Lawton establishment's chips, hot salsa, and cheese dip. The rice and beans are average at Don Jose's, too. Kinda hard to mess those up. The sopapillas are pretty good, though.

The service there is fine. I've never had a major issue with the waitresses or waiters. I can't speak to the alcoholic beverages as I won't pay that much for a drink, but a lot of people go there just for the drinks, so maybe they are okay. All in all, it is just a so-so restaurant. Not the best and not the worst. In Duncan, there are VERY LIMITED restaurant choices. We usually go out of town to eat out.
