De Juan is outstanding! My family had been going here, regularly, for years. Small, and family owned. Everyone is very friendly. Prices are very reasonable, service is great, food and drinks are amazing! Juan often comes by and makes sure everyone is happy. Great place!

It's a quaint little place and the food is spur good but you don't get very much bang for your buck. Me and hubby went and ordered burrito and a chicken dinner and had pop and it was 50.00 and my husband was still hungry after eating cause the portions are small. The people are super nice though and they... More

Tasty menu with a wide variety. Used to be better, fresher food but it seems the owners have changed. Lost some charm but still tasty food!

This is a small family owned restaurant. The food is excellent and very authentic. We had the chicken and steak fajitas. The prices are reasonable. We will return again.

We've been eating regularly at Casa De Juan for several years. It is a small, Mexican cuisine, hole-in-the-wall in a strip mall. Dress is casual. Atmosphere is great. Juan can handle anything from four of us to our occasional mob of sixteen. We generally make reservations early in the afternoon. Sometimes, because it is very popular, we have to wait... More

The atmosphere was good; small, warm and lively with customers. The service was good initiator but slow to follow up with drinks. Unfortunately, the food was lack luster. Suprisingly, nothing was spicy at all and all tortillas were flour. There was no hot sauce to be found and we actually had to track our waitress down to request some. The... More

We have been to this place at least four times. The food is authentic Mexian cuisine. Dress casual and do not bother getting dressed up. For the money, the food and meal selection is good. The place is small so on a weekend night expect to wait a little while to get seated. It is best to go on a... More
