Looks small and unassuming, but looks can be deceiving.

finding parking was a bit of an issue but it was worth it. Apparently, we arrived at just the right time. The wife and I were seated immediately in the third room we saw. You enter into one medium sized room that was crowed to the gills. They then walked us through a covered patio area and... read more

Juan in a Million has been an Austin mexican spot for years. We were greeted by Juan after waiting about 15 minutes to get in. That was neat! I had a combo plate which was good, with a taco, enchiladas, beans and rice. The taco was average, the beans and rice kinda bland. The salsa was quite good, so I... More

If you can, go on a weekday when its not as busy. The food is awesome no matter what you order. More than likely you will see Juan there. He's so nice, makes you feel like you've known him for years!

This place is just ok. Service is great and Juan is always there to greet you at the door. Other than that... meh. Nothing to write home about.

The Mexican food was great, I expecially liked their salsa. Just the right amount of heat. Their prices are fair, the waitstaff was friendly, the portions are huge, and they seem to always be busy. I highly recommend the big breakfast taco, to die for. The restaurant itself could stand a bit of updating, even a paint job would make... More

Every time I've ever been to Jaun's, the line wrapped around the building. It's worth every minute of the wait though. Try to get the outside seating if you can - it's covered so you're not in the sun

Get the Don Juan if your hungry and on a budget. Packed on the weekends. Expect a line outside. Friendly service.

Our waitress was very attentive and helpful. The chips were good, the salsa too hot for me. We had 6 in our party, half the food was mildly warm the other half slightly warm. I ordered nachos. They were not good, they had been either in the microwave or heat lamp and was overdone so the beans and cheese were... More

What an experience! It looked small but when we went in, the rooms just kept coming. We enjoyed the table we ended up at. The waitresses were sweet and helped us choose our feast. The food was delicious and the prices just can't be beat! Yum!

Stopped about 2:00 on a Saturday, they were closing @ 3:00. Service was great, but the food was lukewarm at best. Been here several times, never this disappointed. Probably will try again, they just weren't on their A-game today. Giving Average rating for overall score. Probably poor for food temp. & very good for food quantity, price & service.
