Besides the delicious food we love taking friends here for their unique Birthday Celebration song! They come out with sombrero, dessert and a shot! So much fun to surprise friends and family with this!

We were in Providence to attend a show and found this restaurant on trip advisor. It was very nice. Julianna, our server was personable, knowledgeable, and attentive. We had chips and salsa with guacamole that was made at our table. It was so good. We weren't sure what to order and she suggestedthe sampler. It was delicious. I would definitely... More

Woke up late skipped breakfast and walked up Federal Hill to go to Don Jose's. Worth the walk. Started with Margaritas, regular for me, tamarindo for my husband. So good, The tamarindo was a little sweet and definitely better although the regular was worthwhile. I had a chicken burrito, ally delicious. My husband had the chilaquiles. Tortillas that stayed crisp... More

We ended our trip to RI at this restaurant. I read the reviews and they were right on. Nice festive ambiance. Reasonably priced. Fantastic Mango Margaritas! Table side Guacamole was one of the best. Very convient Valet parking.

I came here for the first time with friends for lunch. The enchiladas were good but the margaritas were great. Definitely want to return and try more!

we went here just for drinks and it was one of the best margaritas i have ever had. The staff were just getting ready for dinner hours but brought out complimentary chips and salsa that was perfectly hot! This was very nice of them as they knew we only there for drinks. I want to go back next visit for... More

We sampled Don Jose recently on the Federal Hill Stroll, and I guess maybe that's not a fair impression from the reviews I've read. The dishes they served were bland and tasteless and my girlfriend even pointed out that every dish in the trash was almost full (as if sentiments about the food was consistent for most). We will give... More

We found this spot on Trip Advisor while searching for authentic Mexican food, which is difficult to find in New England. We were very impressed with the quality, atmosphere, and value. The place was packed on a Friday evening, so we sat at the bar. The service was excellent and they will still make the "table side" guacamole right on... More

I am very very impressed with the way this business is run. The food was fresh and clearly made with care. They had a fun little demonstration for our birthday guest which they posted on Facebook. That was funny. The owner runs that place with military precision, his presence is constant but not over the top. He seems to know... More
