Dinner

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.

We has chicken fajitas for two with frozen margaritas. The food, service and price was OK. The fajitas were a little on the salty side and the salsa was a little bland but overall, a good Mexican establishment, especially for a town of this size.

The restaurant was very old and in need of some updating. The service was friendly and the menu had a good variety. The food was good but I have had more authentic. I'm sure it 's good for the area and the reviews brought me in but I was less than impressed. Good but not great.
