I was initially enthused to see a wide selection of vegetarian options and all the typical Mexican food I like to order at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Spinach quesadillas turned out to be canned spinach (tinted a little brown and a little black) wrapped in a flour tortilla sans cheese. An order of chicken flautas yielded me some taquitos with...

OK This is the worst food and drink I have had own over 30 years!!! The best Margaritas tasted like the mix can from an envelope. It had a metallic taste to it. I ordered the rib eye and most expensive item on the bill of fare. The steak was marinated in a sauce which was overpowering. The worst steak... More

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 unexpected delight. We... 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
