Really enjoyed their food. I had chicken flautas and they were great. Loved the queso and chips! My travel partner had the avocado enchiladas. She was expecting sliced avocados and they were just guacamole-filled tortillas but she said they were good. Our waitress was great, checking on us frequently. Would definitely eat there again.

Our food was good, served hot. The decor is definitely Tex-Mex, seats could be upgraded, but are okay. We enjoyed the enchiladas the night we went.

Salsa was good, chips were hot while we waited for our food selections. The Spinach enchiladas and the chicken/cheese/beef enchiladas were all good and served in a timely manner. The atmosphere is definitely tex-mex and local. Four of us enjoyed our dinner meal and will eat there again.

The food was really great: homemade! Chips were fresh, thin and crispy and served warm! Salsa had an excellent flavor. Not too hot, not too mild: really good. We were traveling through but I sure wish they were near my Arkansas hacienda! We'd be there every week.

They have excellent Mexican food. The hostess and wait staff are very friendly. Would recommend if you want good Mexican food and just not fast food style.

After reading all the great reviews we decided to try Don Juan's on our visit to Marshall. Bad mistake!! Food not so good, service not so good. Waitress seemed anxious to get us out of there even though they were not busy. Brought us our ticket without asking if we would like anything else.....we were going to order sopopillias but... More

Food was great, but I think for their Fajates, they use bagged chicken and not made like other places.
