Come hungry

Stopped by for dinner. The server Lillian took care of us quickly, but did not rush us. The beef Chimichanga and Acapulco salad were a very good size and quality. Everyone I saw leaving had a to-go box, like I said a good portion size. We will be going back soon..

So I usually really like this restaurant, but today our waiter, Orlando, made our experience pretty bad. Apparently there was a miscommunication when he repeated my order back to me so the food I got wasn't what I wanted. Half of it was covered in queso and I'm lactose intolerant. Instead of helping me out and making sure I got... More

Was spoiled with great Mexican food in the DC area, but since moving to the Jacksonville area, been craving for great Mexicans food. Looks like we have found it! Restaurant is on the main drag in the Mandarin area, but it's about 10 min drive from the interstate. Service is friendly, prompt and always make sure you have plenty of... More

Large dining floor with family style appeal. Service can be a bit slow on busy nights but the food is fresh and good. Our favorite is the guacamole. It is by far the best in town. Lots of food options on the menu and drink specials look delicious.

Consistently good food with chunky fresh guacamole, early bird offerings and excellent Margarita's. Their nachos are loaded and the fajitas steak offerings actually are cooked pink. Real Mexican fare.

My wife and I have eaten here many times, most recently Saturday 12/19/15. The food is always tasty, the portions more than ample for us and the service excellent. This most recent visit I had the ENCHILADAS POBLANAS and a MUSHROOM TACO (TACO DE HONGOS), my wife had the POLLO LOCO. We shared the TAQUITOS (4) far an appetizer and... More

From the chips and salsa to the large menu with delicious choices this is a really good Mexican restaurant. It is also open later compared to other restaurants in the area so it's a great choice when you're looking for a restaurant that's open a little later than most. I recently had dinner here and shared the fajitas with still... More

Once again another great dinner. I also look forward to Don Juan's on my trips to Jacksonville. I got into town late they were still open and the they were very fast with good quality food.
