We eat here often as we live in Homer. Staff is friendly and food is always great. We recommend the Fajita with shrimp, chicken and steak. My wife and I split this meal and it is plenty of food.

This is our favorite Don Jose location. The staff is pleasant and the service is very good. The food comes out hot and within a really reasonable time. Everything from the salads to the fajitas is really delicious. And they have menu items that are...More
