This was a great restaurant. We ordered carry-out and then sat down for a beer while we waited for our food to be cooked. The beer arrived in a chilled mug and the manager and wait staff were very attentive and kind to us, even though they knew we were waiting to take food away. My dinner was... read more

Not many restaurant choices in Covington; however, if you are here give this place a try! Small, friendly atmosphere, good service and authentic Mexican food! It's a must try! Moderately priced and enjoyable. Large, hot, fresh Fajita's, great salsa and guac!

Don't let the small town and kinda half hearted decorations fool you. This place is very good with fresh ingredients and large portions. If you're passing through and want some Mexican food, this is definitely the place.

San Juan's is right next to the interstate so it's convenient. The owners & staff are friendly and the food is good. The margaritas are awesome!

My family and I just recently discovered this restaurant on one of our trips to the family vacation home. Good food and service for your average amount at a restaurant. The portions are well worth the money you pay. All the staff are friendly and fast. We had a great time and will be visiting again soon. The only downfall... More
