Good Spicy salsa. We all 4 enjoyed our food and good service. Don't think you could get anything bad here. They were full but service was fast

Even though I posted the review about the fly problem in the summer of 2016 and how I was handed a fly swatter to use at my table and posted pics of the dead flies (is it a health code violation to give a customer a fly swatter to use in the dining room?) we have returned to DJ's, as... More

Food is very good but their "special" plates are overpriced. Chips and salsa are good most of the time. Salsa taste varies. They have a happy hour but the margaritas are weak and sometimes watered down..pay for better tequila for a decent drink.

Great food and staff. Ask for Dennis. He's the best! I ordered the fried chicken salad, perfect. Their chips and salsa are the best in town.

I tried one of the new items on the menu suggested by our awesome waiter, Dennis. If you come during lunch, ask for him.

I've been dinning at Don Jose's restaurants since they opened in a small building here in Ennis, TX. My 25 year old nephew was in highchair. Now we are taking his 4 year old with us to dine. If the owner, Gustavo, happens to be onsite, you will find him a delight! Food is consistently good.

At one time, Don Jose's had the best Mexican food in town. Hot, fresh, quick, and great tasting. Something has happened to Don Jose's over the years. The food is nothing to write home about, the service is something to complain about, and the general value has just gone down. I hope that the restaurant will turn around and get... More

We eat here often. We especially like the nacho, the nachos regulars are our favorite. The chicken Quesada is also very good. We also thing their flan is really great.
