Unexpected Surprise!

We were going to have a quick dinner before taking in a movie at the Tryon Theatre. Unfortunately, a popular pizza place that we'd planned on, was closed on Tuesday. We then tried another pizza place only to discover they had only "to go" service. That's how we ended up at Mr. Juan's and it was an... read more

We just moved from South Florida to the Upstate and say the wonderful reviews of this restaurant and decided to give it a try. Well, were we disappointed. The service was prompt, the place is clean and nice decorated. However, the food was horrible. The plates lacked any color whatsoever, it looked more like a plate of brown, beige and... More

Stopped here for lunch today. The menu is very large with many choices. They have fantastic lunch specials for $5! My mother in law had chicken tacos and I had a chicken and cheese quesadilla. The food was very fresh and arrived quickly. Hot chips and flavorful salsa was much enjoyed. We think this is the best Mexican food in... More

My wife were driving through from Lake Lure en route to Charleston when stopped for some good Mexican food. Well, looks of the place outside was a bit dismal, and the food was fair, but nothing to write home about. The service was good, but the steak my wife ordered had little taste and was mostly fat. We've had Mexican... More

If you enjoy great Mexican food, you should really try Mr. Juan's. We moved away from Tryon and actually drive an hour to get there because they are much better than the choices we have now. They use quality ingredients, and it makes a difference. The atmosphere is good, and the restaurant is clean. The servers are friendly and efficient.

We have six Mexican restaurants to choose from in a 6 mile radius of Tryon, and think Mr. Juan's is the best of all of them. Lots to choose from on an extensive menu and prices are very reasonable. Great margaritas too! Try the California Burrito.

And the owner was very attentive as we were early dinner and the place had very few people in it at the time. We ended up taking about half our food home as the portions were such a nice size.

Being a favorite cuisine of our family, we find that we eat Mexican somewhere at least once a week. We always compare other Mexican restaurants to this one and Mr. Juan's beats them hands down!! The service is quick, always friendly, the freshest anywhere, they do their best to accommodate any special requests, and each dish is prepared individually with... More
