Don Jose in the Phoenix New Times – cinco de mayo at don jose’

The Phoenix New Times features Don Jose’ for CINCO DE MAYO Celebration!


The Phoenix New Times features Don Jose’ for CINCO DE MAYO Celebration!

Don Jose’ has been featured in the New Times as one of the best places to celebrate Cinco De Mayo. Well, to be honest, we knew that, but it’s nice to see it in print.

Here’s what they have to say:
Cinco de Mayo has turned into the ultimate party. Originally observed as the day commemorating the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, it’s taken on a special significance in the U.S., let alone in Arizona.
And there’s certainly no shortage of places around the Valley celebrating the holiday.”

And here’s where Don Jose’ comes in:

“Don Jose’ Mexican Food
3734 East Thomas Road
Stop into Don Jose’ Mexican Food on May 4 or 5 for Cinco Mayo specials aplenty. Food deals include a mini breakfast burro plate, shrimp and octopus ceviche, layered bean dip, queso potato skins, ranchero beans, chicken mole enchilada plate, a pork green chile plate, and a spinach con queso chicken breast plate. Don’t forget about dessert — there’s a delicious fried ice cream banana split on the menu. Pozole and menudo will also be available all day. For drinks, choose from a strawberry, prickly pear, or spicy jalapeño margaritas, Pacifico Michelada, or your favorite draft.”

What more can we say? Well, we can say “Thank You” to the Phoenix New Times, but, more than that, we want to say “Thank You” to our staff, our cooks, our servers for making Don Jose’ Mexican Food a GREAT place to dine and celebrate, particularly Cinco De Mayo!

So come on down and join us. We’re celebrating with SPECIALS ALL WEEKEND, so bring your friends and family. Ole! Cinco De Mayo at Don Jose’ Mexican Food.

Don Jose NOW serving food as a guest of Karsen’s Grill in Old Town Scottsdale!

Don Jose Food Wagon will be serving food as a guest of Karsen’s Grill on the corner of Brown and 2nd Street in Old Town Scottsdale!

We will be there for the 66th Annual Parada Del Sol parade and celebration!

Don Jose Food Wagon at the Parada Del Sol

You say that you don’t know much about the Parada Del Sol? Well, it is a long-standing tradition that began in the 1950’s. Today it is a celebration of this town’s western roots and includes one of the oldest professional rodeos in the country and a historical parade.

The tradition began in 1951 with the creation of the Sunshine Festival, which was sponsored by the City of Scottsdale shortly after it incorporated that same year. The first Sunshine Festival consisted of a brief parade through downtown Scottsdale and ended in a family barbecue. The event was held to celebrate the beautiful winter season in Scottsdale.

In 1953, the Scottsdale Jaycees assumed production of the festival, renaming it “Parada del Sol”. Translated from Spanish, it means, “walk in the sun.” The first rodeo was added to the Sunshine Festival in 1956.

Scottsdale’s Parada del Sol is a month-long celebration that begins with a magnificent parade and five action-packed professional rodeo performances. The Parada del Sol is a team effort of the Jaycees and local volunteers who donate thousands of hours, hard work and personal resources to bring the “West’s Most Western Town” alive in February and March each year.

Now some 60 years later it has grown from just a few hundred in attendance to one hundred thousand spectators and participants. Today the festivities include a Fun Run, Cattle Drive, Parade, Trails End celebration, Coors Hoe Down, and the Rodeo Dance at Handlebar J’s. Rodeo events include bull riding, calf roping, barrel racing and steer wrestling.
