I’m so upset that I waited as long as I did to have a meal here. Out of this world! Great menu with just the right amount of choices. Drink menu with multiple types of margaritas. I opted for the fajitas. Guacamole made fresh before...More

I came here for a small get together with friends, the waitress was rude throughout the whole dinner, the food is overpriced and bland. When you eat Mexican food you expect there to be a good flavor, and the food was seriously lacking in spices....More

Have been in RI for about 4 years now and have had no luck finding something that felt like it was true Mexican food. This was finally the spot. Between the Mezcal drinks and extremely flavorful dishes, I was a huge fan

Don Jose's was recommended to us and we loved it. Hector took great care of us. Making lunch suggestions and tequilas. Yummy. We had shrimp tacos. Skirt steak. Pork and tamales and table side guacamole. We really enjoyed everything and the service was great.

Highly recommend! It's a medium sized restaurant. Although tables are close together, it was not loud. There were 4 of us. We started with Guacamole and chips (made table side) and it was delicious! We read to tip the person preparing the Guacamole, so we...More
