We stop in here often. My husband loves their food & the service is always good. I enjoy their shredded chicken taco salad & green sauce (which you need to ask for). Hubs likes the salsa. Absolutely worth a stop while in Jefferson!

This restaurant has several chains. We dined at its Jefferson, Tx. location. The food was very good, not overly expensive and the service was excellent. We ate there twice on our 3 day visit to Jefferson, Tx. This says how much we liked it. Don't expect a fancy atmosphere. You're paying for food/service there. Not fancy tables.

The hot sauce was strange at best. It had a strong taste of cumin. When I asked for a stronger sauce, it was much better--the green sauce. The food gets good marks. There was a mix up at the beginning where we were left sitting without service. They made this up with a free drink which I had to remind... More

Had the sour cream chicken enchilada dinner. Wonderful Mexican food! Also had the queso - loved it! Very good chips, as well. Great service and fast, too. I would recommend this place!

This is not authentic Mexican food. We asked the waiter if the spinach in the enchilada was fresh and he said yes. It was "fresh out of a can". The chicken enchilada was no better. Flavors were bland and we did not enjoy the meal.

Located on Highway 59 in Jefferson, Don Juan's was a real surprise. Curb appeal of what appears to be an old Dairy Queen, and not much inside for atmosphere, yet the mexican food ranks as some of the best we have had. Service was quick, attentive and the food was prepared fresh and quickly. The wifey had an avocado enchilada... More

My sister and I visited Jefferson, Texas for a few days. For our last meal before leaving town we decided we wanted Mexican food. We chose Don Juan's and we were very glad we did. The chips and hot sauce were delicious. Our meals could not have been any better. Last but not least, the frozen Margarita. It was divine.... More

Took a little step back when we saw the exterior and it's location next to a rundown motel. The interior was as expected - nothing fancy, but we're used to that. The food turned out to be very good Tex-Mex and FAST! We were in and out in 35 minutes! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

We love eating at Don Juan's when we come back to Texas to visit my parents. We ate here twice on our last visit. The bean & cheese nachos are delicious & a full order is enough for our family of 6 to each get 2. The fajitas are great as are the flautas. My favorite is the plate with... More

Consistently good tex mex. Prices are reasonable. Service is fast. Chips and salsa are also good. I only wish we could have tex mex in Tennessee.
