Great food!

Great food, great atmosphere. My love and I always make this one of our stops when we are in Tehachapi. This place was one of our first date dinners so the memories are always wonderful to revisit. The food and warm welcomed serve are always at it best. The food is very flavorful.

The first course consisted of two of... More

I tell everyone I meet that by far the beat restaurant in Tehachapi is Don Juan's Latin Fusion, but I am quick to tell them not to expect Mexican food because it's not that...it's so much more! Instead of chips and salsa you will nom on delicious white bread and chimichurri sauce while waiting for your food to be prepared... More

A surprising and hidden place away from Tehachapi's main downtown. The "black bean pudding" appetizer was delicious as was the other food. I tried their pisco sour, and it was good, but don't expect authentic Chilean style.

Not only do they have great food, but their margaritas are terrific. They have different flavors, other than just the standard. The mango margarita was to die for! YUM!

Treat yourself, your friends, your family! This is my all-time favorite place in Tehachapi to have lunch, dinner, and/or cocktails! Juan, Yolanda and staff see to every aspect of a stellar dining experience. The food is handcrafted from fresh ingredients, cooked to your specifications, and beyond delicious. The Cuban Pork Shank is highly recommended, as well as the Bacon Wrapped... More

Near my home. My wife loves the local wine list and the appetizers are remarkable. Discounted prices before 7 PM. We dine here twice per week during our date night. Love the knowledgeable staff and cleanliness. Thank you

Don Juan's is our go to place for out of town guests we want to please. The unique south american flavors, great service and atmosphere keep us coming back again and again.

It's funny to me it used to be the best and then slipped a little. Many feel it's the best, I will say it is one of the best in town. It is worth trying if in town. It is unique South American cuisine

Me and my husband went during lunch (dinner menu was also available). There was a good variety of different kinds of food and even vegetarian dishes. Everything was very good and we will definitely be back.
