Good but pricey for what you get

We dined here with relatives who recommended the place. The food was good but we felt it was overpriced for what came on the plate.

Don Juan is always a great time and the food is wonderful. Their guacamole is fresh always and can be made tableside if requested. Very smooth texture, just the right amount of spice. The food is fabulous and the margaritas are great too!!! A popular stop for my Monday Night Ladies group! Happy Hour cocktail specials are a plus also.

Can't really comment on the food as I never actually got my order. My wife's chicken enchilada tasted really nice even though it was for another table. The staff had 3 goes to get the right food on the right tables and still didn't 't get it right. This is a new restaurant so I guess the staff are still... More

Easy in and out from a major highway. Colorful without being cheesy décor, great staff and tableside guacamole made to order. The appetizer and salsa bar were fantastic. Their signature drinks were small but powerful and we ate on the outside patio and had a ball. Well priced and nothing outstanding about our server...she was about as pleasant as a... More

I enjoyed a vegan Toastaguac by substituting mushrooms for beef and removing the cheese. My husband had the vegetable fajitas and very much enjoyed them as well. Delicious!

Honestly, this is the worst Mexican restaurant I've been to! I travel to this area often for business and stay at the Homewood Suites next door, so I thought I'd give this place a try since they basically share parking lots. I regret it! The service was slow, inattentive, and terrible. The "sangria" not only came from a bottle, it... More

went last Tues to the Maumee location. After waiting 50 minutes,we had to leave without our food. We work at a local business,and were on our lunch hour. You'd think they'd want to keep local businesses happy,since we used to frequent their restaurant.Plenty of other places to eat in the area

Restaurant was next door to hotel we stayed at. Because of our stay at the hotel we got a discount at the restaurant which was nice. Food was average, atmosphere was nice and the service was good.

I was working in the area and passed it on my way to see a customer. After my appointment I passed it again and decided to stop in for lunch, by myself. I sat in a booth in the bar area, thought the atmosphere was very nice. I ordered one of the lunch specials which included Chile Relleno, a taco,... More

Try El Camino Real (Toledo) or El Camino Sky (Oregon) instead. The atmosphere at this location leaves a lot to be desired. Portions are smaller, food quality isn't up to the El Camino par, and it is usually so busy you have to wait way too long.
