It is now called Rodrigo's. It is a more upscale Mexican restaurant. Depending on what you order, it can be good, or just mediocre.

I have been here quite a few times and I am happy to say they are very consistent. Great black beans, good fresh salad, good salsa and that skinny margarita? Oh my! YUM!!

First Mexican food I had eaten in a long time. The chips and salsa were good and they kept them filled which is impressive. The place was packed on a Wednesday night. I had the vegy fajitas which were pretty good. I recommend this place.

With two people working, and the kids away at college, there is at least one or two nights in a month that both of us are just too tired to cook. That's where Don Jose comes in. Previously this location had so many failed restaurants...More
