My whole family LOVES Don Juan's! Great food, great staff and atmosphere. The guacamole is AMAZING! If you're ever passing through Lexington, this is the place to eat!

Possibly the best enchilada plate I've ever had in the super enchiladas. You can't go wrong with this place if you're passing through Lexington!

This was our second visit to Don Juan's. The margarita's were just right, and even the small size was very generous. The menu had a very wide variety of options, and our server was quite helpful in sorting out selections. The table-side guacamole could have been its own meal! It was some of the best guac ever! Be prepared to... More

We actually ate here twice this visit. The polla Yucatan is a must try. Service was fast and friendly and they definitely didn't rush you out. Salsa is great and so were chips. All of us enjoyed our meals there and they have specials each day :)

Mexican food in the heart of NC BBQ country? You bet! And some kind-a-good food too. From shrimp salad covered with large shrimp( not popcorn sized ) to Steak this is the place for foodies. But be advised, you may have to wait for a table on Friday and Saturday night. The lines are long from 6pm to 8pm.Go early... More

This restaurant is located near a local high school and it is very popular with the teens and rightfully so, it is really good. I have never been unhappy with my meal here. I would go more often if it was closer to my house. Everything is great with this place.

Lexington is known for it's barbarque, but my first choice for eating out is Don Jauns. My husband and I usually go at lunch time basically because the meals are smaller. The staff is always professional and attentive. The place is small, but always clean. I don't think you would be dissappointed eating here. I'm a fan of the fajitas,... More

I must say first that the food at this restaurant is sooooo good. Delicious. Fan-freakin-tastic. However, I have an issue that has me sitting on the fence with Don Juan's: the price fluctuates without explanation. I HAVE ordered the same exact dish (as it is my wife's favorite) at least once a week for a long time now. My problem... More

My daughter took me here for dinner and I couldn't get over how good the food was. She is a chef and her friends are foodies and they eat here all the time. They get a kick out of taking old Mom out and making her try "new things". When I think Mexican, I think spicy, and I don't do... More

For six years we lived in San Diego and thought we would never find Mexican food as good as we had there. When we moved to Lexington, NC we were surprised at how large a Hispanic population there was and even more surprised at how great the Mexican restaurants were, especially Don Juans. Service is always polite and food is... More
