We go here all the time. Never had anything that wasn't delicious. We take family that come to visit and this place hasn't disappointed. Favorite dish is the Cuban Pork Sandwich and the baked sweet potato fries are the best I have ever had.

I really like the different Latin food served here. Although the décor is a bit dull. Not much of a crowd for the lunch bunch. Their black beans are delish

This fine dining restaurant is in a very odd location in old town next to a feed store. really? The restaurant is very nice and clean, with plenty of seating, yet there was only one server on duty for our visit on a Thursday evening at 5:30. He did a good job keeping up with all his customers, but really... More

My husband and I and our parents love this restaurant! It is one if our favorites in Tehachapi. We had our wedding rehearsal dinner there and many valentines, birthdays, etc. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, everything is delicious and authentic South American cuisine. The staff is personable and the atmosphere is nice. I highly recommend visiting... More

Ate here twice during a week-long stay. Hard to comprehend that this place is currently #3 in the rankings for town. First meal was average - slightly over cooked ribeye and chicken enchiladas that were bland. Given rankings and awards on wall from local papers, decided we should give it another try. Pork shank and fettuccine w/vegetables were marginally better... More

We have never been disappointed with anything we have ordered at Don Juan's. His soups are amazing, and you will love the bread with the chimichurri sauce that is delivered to your table. Excellent wine selection too.

Good value for the money on most dishes. The steaks are really good. I've also had the salad with salmon. A good value.

We ate here with our two boys. We are both chefs and are very picky. The food was really good and the service was great too! Very interesting flavors. The room could use some help with rearrangement so it's not so empty in the middle and the bright kitchen lights could be hidden with a door or other barrier.

First the negatives (all my wife's issues)...a broken latte machine, no hot tea refill, and the seafood kabob was missing the promised scallops, plus they never mentioned the tapas menu which we totally would have taken advantage of; the service was excellent but they waited too long to take our credit card. The appetizer Pork Panama was awesome...tender pork with... More

Nice place for food, ambience. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. Service, friendly staff- all good. Creative menu, something for everyone.
