Having searched far and wide for good Mexican food we tried Don Juan's. It is pretty close to what we are used to. The service is always good.

The waiter was nice! I ordered a Carme Asada Taco. The menu said, 'Onions and Cilantro on the side.' It never occurred to me that all I'd get was a flat flour tortilla with cold meat on it... a little plastic cup of onions and cilantro. No cheese, lettuce, tomato? Taco Bell does better than that!

Speedy service, friendly staff, great atmosphere! The food was amazing. The complimentary chips and salsa were freaking amazing! Never before have I tasted such a perfect fresh salsa! The queso dip was great as well but I appreciate a good salsa!

Quality over quantity. Polite timely service. Fresh salsa. Clean restrooms. Manager stopped by. Definitely recommend. Would like to come in the evening for a margarita.

We keep going back and it never disapoints. Service is always great, the bar scene is top notch, and the food is always fresh and amazing! Try something different if you get to go. The Cochinta Pibl, the carnitas, the Enchiladas Poblano (Great Mole) They also have the best Chicken Soup in the world!

Slightly different from TX but it's good. The salsa and guacamole are fantastic. The picadillo was really good. My tortilla in the burrito was not authenticate, and the enchilada tortilla still seemed raw. The tamale was white corn masa, and a little thicker than I'm used to. Overall, ok. There were positive and negative, but ultimately it's just a little... More

Very good food and the service is quick and right on the money. Decent bar and a good menu. The prices are right and they're always open when I need a good Mexican food fix.

We've been going to don Juan's for around 7 years now. I think we officially go there once a week to get the best mex in Jax. The owner is friendly and always there. The wait staff is great. The food is always fresh and delicious. Generous portions at a fair price. They can easily handle large groups/parties.

Have been here a few times & I enjoy it. I didnt think chicken wings in a Mexican restaurant would be that good, but if you like a hot sauce coating, these are some of the most flavorful wings I've had in JAX. I usually get the burrito, enchilada, taco combo and while not as great as homemade this place... More
