This was a nice place. Nice waiter. Clean. Food was standard TexMex. Healthy portions. Biggest complaint is that the booths are not comfortable to sit in, a little close to other diners, and the temperature was too hot for comfort.

Spices are done just right for my tastes, at this restaurant. And i loved the romantic atmosphere with the low lighting:)

Very nice atmosphere and food. This is the kind of quality that you can only get from a family run business. My wife and I consider the Sunday buffet a special treat. I dont always eat Mexican, but when I do I prefer Don Jose's.

Had the Chile Verde Queen Tasada, great flavor and lots of pork and Verde sauce. Will visit again. Love their homemade chips and salsa.

I was amazing at how much lunch prices were for what you get. The flavors were blah and the service was average. You have to self-serve yourself if you want chips and salsa. Very disappointed! Plate of food at lunch was $16...

I love their food! I always get their burritto when I go there! It's very good but it is kind of big. And plus, the name of one of the characters in the Opera Carmen which is coming to Anchorage Opera in a few weeks!

The meal wasn't really Mexican as one might expect. The service was slow and irregular and the food taste was disappointing, We won't be back.
