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

This place is no different than the hundreds of other Mexican restaurants and eateries I have been to. Seasoned meat, wrap it in something and dump sauce on it. To be above average, I would need to see some fresher ingredients and some more care put into the food. Service was good, price was good, food was just O.K. If... More

The service is good and friendly. The food was good and the portions were good sized. The corn chips and salsa were very nice. This place is worth a try if you like Mexican style food.

My daughter and I went to Don Juan's for lunch on Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and we were not disappointed! The tortilla chips were fresh, crispy and warm, and the salsa was flavorful with a little kick! We also ordered the cheese dip, and we will definitely get it again. We both had burritos - she had the Burrito... More

The restaurant was clean and attractive. Our server was friendly, and our chimichanga, beef enchilada, and pork tamale were delicious. If you are looking for California-style Mexican food, keep looking. But, Don Juan is great for Jacksonville Tex-Mex. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
