Don Jose
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Most Mexican restaurants have pretty standard fare. Don Jose is definitely a cut above. The endless chips are appreciated albeit not the best we've ever had. Why aren't they salted when they come out of the fryer while they're still hot? Lime salt would make them outstanding.

That said, the salsa was excellent and pleasantly different from the standard. Everyone in our party was happy with their entree. All dishes were seasoned to perfection, and the cheese sauce on our chimichanga was creamy, flavorful, and plentiful. The shredded chicken was perfectly seasoned and tender. Another in our party had the Adobe Chicken for the second time and was pleased that it was as good as the first time he had it. The sopapilla was a cross between a churro and the usual honey/butter fried tortilla. Fried, heavily coated with cinnamon sugar, drizzled with chocolate, and dollops of whipped cream. A perfect ending to our meal. Our server was attentive without being intrusive bringing additional chips, salsa and drink refills without being asked.

Don Jose provides a great value for your money with reasonably priced dinners in the $8-10 range and enough food to satisfy. The only other observation we have is that the menu is very extensive with perhaps a few too many choices. In any case, we highly recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning the next time we're in the area.

This place is simply amazing! If you want true authentic Mexican food this is the place to come. My husband is from Texas and has been looking for years to find anyplace close to the food at home. This place has it. From the chips and salsa to the menu items you will want to eat here daily. It's also super fast service and very reasonably priced. I can't say enough how great this place is and I hope it's here to stay!

Great little Mexican cafe hidden in a Robinson Township strip mall. The best margaritas we ever had, and that counts for ones we had in Arizona also. Just a perfect blend....not too tart, not too much ice, not too much tequila. Just right. Their food is excellent also. Very reasonably priced in the 8-9 dollar range and way, way better than the "chain Mexican restaurants". Service is quick and very friendly. I plan to go back soon and I have been telling everyone in the neighborhood to give them a try.
