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!

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
