Restaurant Description

Don Jose Tequilas originally began at 311 Plain Street in Providence. The menu featured distinctive dishes from all over Mexico, such as mole poblano, wood-grilled pork tacos, ceviche, camarones a la tequila, chiles rellenos, and of course Carnitas Don Jose (which is a roasted pork cooked with lard, beer, chicken base, oranges, and evaporated milk in a cooper container). Carnitas are a very traditional dish in Michoacan. After a few years at this location, and with a long list of well-established customers, Jaime and Jose decided to move the restaurant to historic Federal Hill. The menu has been largely maintained, with new dishes contributed by chefs Raquel Diaz (Cochinita Pibil and Brazo de Reina) of Merida Yucatan, and María Hernandez (pescado al tomatillo, huachinango, enchiladas veracruzanas) of Veracruz. You can complement your dining experience with a great selection of fine tequilas and margaritas sangrías. They also have a fine selection of desserts.

Honestly, I had my 21st birthday there and it was the worst experience I have ever had. Not only was the service slow and unorganized, but the food was poor quality and does not fit the standards of federal hill. The waitresses put EVERYTHING on one bill for our entire party, even though some people already paid separately for some of their own drinks and food. So at the end of the night, we pretty much double paid for everything. I will NEVER go back to this place.

This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in RI. The food is fabulous, the margarita's are delightful. The staff is courteous and friendly.

The food is absolutely delicious. The staff is always well dressed, friendly and most of all efficient and polite. I have been to the restaurant many times & never once been disappointed . The food, drinks & atmosphere are superb.

Everyone should visit this restaurant! The drinks are delicious and you don't have to limit yourself to the wonderful Margaritas.

As a frequent patron, you will not be dissatisfied.
