Went to Don Juan's for date night. The service was on point. Food came to the table quickly, about as hot as it gets, drinks were never empty without being over served, and the owner/manager came to the table to ensure our satisfaction. The food tasted fresh, without "mystery" ingredients. Its just what you'd expect from an upscale Mexican restaurant,... More

The menu is extensive, many more choice than most Mexican restaurants we've eaten in. The salsa that came with the warm chips was excellent. The enchiladas and tacos were good as was the rice and beans. I thought it was a bit overpriced for the lunch portion sizes but all in all a good dining experience.

Don Juan's is a must! We went in a Saturday, wait wasn't long at all, place was very busy (but I take that as a good sign). Drinks where great, service was excellent.Chips and salad was served promptly, dinner came out quick and was delicious and very hot! Dessert was a must try as well. I am not a huge... More

The food is very good. Free Chips and salsa refilled as needed. 2 for 1 Margaritas. Good service, clean, happy place. I like the chicken fajita quesadilla. Our out of town visitors always like to visit here.

I read the reviews in this site, so I was curious to try it. The chips and salsa were average. When I first read the menu, I thought they were overpriced. When we actually got the food, I understood why they charged that amount...the dishes were humongous. Really, the Burrito Baja California could easily feed two people. We also tried... More

We've been to this restaurant twice, when visiting Jacksonville. Wonderful food. Service was courteous and fast. The flautas in particular are a find. I ordered the chicken flautas, and they come with a jalapeno jelly (a dipping sauce) that is unlike any other I've had--it is delicious.

I have been going here since they started in their first location. I have NEVER had a bad meal or service. One of my standards for a great restaurant is "Would I order anything on the menu again" I wholeheartedly can answer YES, there is not one item on the menu I wouldn't order again. Everything is great! The owner... More

Went on a Thursday night. Walk in & immediately seated by hostess. Our waitress gets our drink order quickly & chips & salsa arrive after we ask for it. Prices are high for what you get. The cheapest item on the dinner menu is the tacos at $11.99. My husband wanted the fajitas but at $14.99 for chicken & $15.99... More

We visited this restaurant recently on a quick trip to Jacksonville. The restaurant was very clean and the staff was excellent. The staff was very friendly and really on top of things so much so that it actually surprised me at how well the staff worked together. We had chips and salsa to start as per usual in any Mexican...
