We are so glad that we found this place! The food was delicious, they make really good margaritas, and the staff was very... More

My friend and I went here on a Thursday night for dinner. We didn't have reservations and were told there would be a long wait, so we ended up just eating at the bar. The drinks were delicious - I had a sangria and then a special margarita (mezcalrita I think - so good!). My friend is allergic to oranges,... More

Have been in RI for about 4 years now and have had no luck finding something that felt like it was true Mexican food. This was finally the spot. Between the Mezcal drinks and extremely flavorful dishes, I was a huge fan

Don Jose's was recommended to us and we loved it. Hector took great care of us. Making lunch suggestions and tequilas. Yummy. We had shrimp tacos. Skirt steak. Pork and tamales and table side guacamole. We really enjoyed everything and the service was great.

Highly recommend! It's a medium sized restaurant. Although tables are close together, it was not loud. There were 4 of us. We started with Guacamole and chips (made table side) and it was delicious! We read to tip the person preparing the Guacamole, so we gave him a couple of dollars. We also shared the Shrimp Ceviche, which was fabulous!... More

Besides the delicious food we love taking friends here for their unique Birthday Celebration song! They come out with sombrero, dessert and a shot! So much fun to surprise friends and family with this!

We had chips and salsa with guacamole that was made at our table. It was so good. We weren't sure what to order and she suggestedthe sampler. It was delicious. I would definitely... More

Tortillas that stayed crisp... More

We ended our trip to RI at this restaurant. I read the reviews and they were right on. Nice festive ambiance. Reasonably priced. Fantastic Mango Margaritas! Table side Guacamole was one of the best. Very convient Valet parking.

I came here for the first time with friends for lunch. The enchiladas were good but the margaritas were great. Definitely want to return and try more!
