A Different twist on Mexican food - Wonderful QUESO!!

We found this place on Trip Adviser and decided to try it. To get a sampling, we ordered the 3 taco plate, which we shared (one chicken, one beef, one tuna). The chicken was tender and tasty, the tuna was excellent (my fav), the beef, I did not like. It was unusually seasoned, which I did not... read more

We were visiting family in your hot temp. state and had lunch twice. The food was delicious and fresh, but I agree with other reviews that it is expensive. Our bill was $80 for lunch. I cant complain about the service or your fabulous drinks, plus the salsa and chips were awesome. I had the shrimp taco's and want to... More

Hello Mary & thank you for the excellent 5 star review. Knowing how hot our summer has been, we feel overwhelmed to have received such a great review from a Northerner!

How many good things can I say about this place? Let me start by saying I have a lot of health issues (severe allergies, chemical sensitives, etc) so, I tried this wonderful restaurant because they touted clean food!! GMO-free is definitely hard to come by in Shreveport-Bossier! On top of that, they have bent over backwards to not only serve,... More

After reading many tripadvisor reviews, we went to don juanz last night. Great frozen margaritas. Even better happy hour. Out of this world chips and salsa. We had fajitas and yellow fin tuna tacos. Both were excellent . Also tortilla soup was good. Great atmosphere and service. Cost was not bad for the quality received. We'll be back.

We read about it, we wanted to try it and we finally did. We were disappointed!!! The price is expensive and we understand why but our food was skimpy.

Sorry to hear we disappointed you with your last visit, but please, let's set the record straight with prices. It appears that your wife's post (below) has a picture of the Mexi-Cheez steak tacos "lunch Special" that comes with 4 ounces of rice & 4 ounces of Lard/MSG-Free beans for a special price of $8.99, not $11.00.

We tried Don Juanz after reading several awesome reviews on here. I got the mexi-cheez steak tacos, and was disappointed. I literally had 1/4 of the tortilla filled - see photo below. The taste was good, but just not for me. The tortilla was amaaaazing!!!! Hubby had the baja carnitas tacos and liked them except for the sweet oniony taste.... More

Thank you for complimenting my restaurant. Our fresh tortillas can be overwhelming in size. Some staff members press them a little more than others, stretching the dough more than often. This is indicative of a hand-made product, not packaged, so we consistently portion to a recipe- not the tortilla. If we tried to fill that tortilla, edge-to-edge, you'd have a... More

The chips and salsa were excellent! The food seemed to be bland for my taste. However, it's a bit insulting to put a line item for tipping on the receipt-unless your sitting at the bar ordering drinks. My impression is I can go to Nikki's on Viking and pay similar prices with a dining experience. I will tip the waitstaff... More

Thank you Jennifer for the compliment to our chips & salsa made fresh daily in our kitchen. Because we are a "wholesome" & "fresh" alternative to Mexican food, some might think we're a bit bland- compared to some other Mexican restaurants in the area. But, we can assure you, we are by far the healthiest Mexican restaurant in the area,... More

Me and one of my friends went there for lunch. The ordering process is lil weird for the price of food. The ambience is ok. Food is average. 15 dollars for a chicken burrito with rice and beans on side is kinda outrageous. Burrito is as big as chipotle's burrito. Almost 40$s for two people for average food, not my...

Thank you Rootstop for giving us a try. I appreciate your compliment to the size of our burritos! As for pricing, all natural, hand-crafted food does not come cheap, even for us. Everything you saw on your plate was either made in-house or naturally grown/raised & free of GMO's, hormones, lard, MSG and/or artificial ingredients. We offer two grilled chicken... More

Husband's Yellowfin Tuna salad was superb; My Triple Taco meal was fantastic! Those chips and salsa put all the other local Mexican restaurants to shame! Don Juanz is clean and well decorated, with a friendly atmosphere. The personnel are eager to please and accommodate quickly. We will absolutely come back next time we're in town!!
