Stopped in for dinner after driving all day. We were greeted at the entrance and seated quickly. Some chips and salsa arrived almost before we sat down and our drink order taken right away.

Breakfast is a delight at Don Jose if you have the American /Mexican waiter from Gabriel California! He is attentive to every need. Food was not only a great value but also delicious . Atmosphere was festive and very colorful.Lovely experience, great coffee!

We eat here a couple of times a year when travelling through. Good food, large servings, reasonable prices, good service. We stay at the Days Inn attached to restaurant and then have breakfast the next morning here also. Always good.

Who would have believed to find a great Mexican restaurant in Arkansas. Fast, friendly and efficient service and they're licensed to boot. The food was abundant and inexpensive and the chips and salsa free and awesome. Worth the detour to go return there for sure.

We were expecting good Mexican food. It was not. The queso and salsa were store bought and the queso seemed to be watered down. My son's order was wrong and had to be remade. The service was good and the people were very nice. It seemed to be a meeting place for a lot of teens. Very noisy.

Other reviews indicated BLAND. How right they were. Add very poor service to it and you have been double warned.
