Had lunch during a layover in Austin Texas. The front of the store is humble. The inside an authentic border cafe and that is coming from a girl raised in El Paso. I know real Mexican food. It was a little pricy but all in all I would return on a future visit! Ole

Got a rave review of this place from a friend and naturally had to try it. Let me just say, they have ahhhmazing breakfast tacos! They are HUGE! Super good and very fresh. I probably could have shared with my friend, but I was apparently feeling greedy and ate the whole thing. Definitely would have been enough for 2 people... More

Went here just because it was on Man vs. food. I do not agree with Adam Richman's opinion. I think it's just average, nothing to write home about. There was a line out the door so we waited a while to be seated. We were brought to the back where I felt like I was in an old Mexican's house,... More

This place was a lot of fun. Really crowded but we got seated quickly and waited on immediately. The restaurant is sprawled out, some of it inside and some of outside with plastic sheets protecting you from the street under neon lights. We were there during an incredibly powerful thunder and lightning storm and water was pouring through vents onto... More

Thursday at Juan's the special is enchiladas, beef or chicken. Be prepared for a warm greeting from Juan when you walk in the door. If the ladies give him a body language hint, they might get a hug, while the men are sure to get the best handshake in Texas. All the food is as good as any TexMex anywhere... More

I keep seeing this place being shown on TV, and I wanted to tell people the experience I had after I ate there. First, the place was not clean, but we stayed and I had the Don Juan Burrito. A coupe hours later - I was sick, and I know it was from that burrito. I would never go back... More

Order the Don Juan. Just do it. Everything is supposedly bigger in Texas right? Despite its appearance, the Don Juan is no exception. The record for the number of Don Juans that have been eaten in one sitting here is something like 8. I couldn't finish mine. What's the Don Juan you're wondering? The best way to put it is... More

Great food and great service. The Don Juan taco is a must-have. Portions are huge, so you might want to share.

My friend and I enjoyed a tasty lunch here today. We had the special which was two yummy enchiladas and delicious rice and beans and a small salad. We loved the fresh homemade flour and corn tortillas that came with our meal too. Juan the owner greets us with his big smile, hello and friendly handshake. The waitresses are friendly... More

That one day when some of my co-workers wanted to go out for lunch, I asked to try it. We arrived about 11:40. Very few people in there. We were greeted by Juan and his signature, hard slap handshake. The place was very well lit and brightly colored. It looked mostly clean, but could use some scrubbing in a couple... More
