After reading the reviews, I expected better, a lot better. The restaurant was not busy except for a party in the back, or so we were told. We seated ourselves, a part of 5, in a booth. We waited for the waiter for a good 15 minutes. Finally received chips, went ahead and ordered Queso because kids were ready to... More

We ate at Don Juan's and had a good meal. We ordered their fajatas and they were great. Their Charo beans were on the hot side a lot of peppers in them but I ate them all. My husband does not like hot food so he left his but it was a good meal and we enjoyed it.

The salsa doesn't seem to agree with me - which makes me think it may have beef fat in it. I can handle the salsa at just about every other place but here. The enchiladas and fajitas seem to be okay.

Sometimes you just want to have Mexican food. You don't want BBQ or another burger. We gave it a shot and went in for a drink and appetizer. The food was good and then our waiter fell off the face of the earth. Seriously. He never came back. There were 3 total tables in the restaurant. We sat and looked... More

Our experience started with a friendly greeting by our server who seated us quickly and brought warm chips and 2 great salsas! I had been trying to find seafood that was not deep fried and on the healthy side. Fried fish and shrimp abound in Jefferson, but Don Juan's offered a grilled snapper with a tequila-lime sauce. A perfectly grilled... More

Food has to much cilantro in everything. The food is bland and just not good. I will never eat there again.

Don Juan's was recommended by several locals - a sure mark of a good restaurant. We began our meal with a couple of Grande Margaritas that were served promptly, well chilled and in truly remarkable sized glasses. Our served was a genuinely jolly fellow demonstrably happy we were there and took great pride in both his service and the restaurant's... More

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!
