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.

Since moving to Jacksonville, I have been searching for a good Mexican restaurant. This one was was fair and about on par with the chains in the area. I am still in pursuit of an excellent Mexican restaurant in the area. The service was very good.

Finally a decent Mexican place in Jacksonville! Food tasted fresh, service was very good without being too attentive and annoying. The chile Relleno was authentic and perfect. I will go back for certain.

Finding good Mexican food in Jax is tough. The chips were warm and the salsa was very fresh. We tried the cheese dip and it was very good. My son got the veggie burrito and said it was very good. Rice and beans were above average too. 5 people ate for $53 which included cheese dip and a beer. We... More

Always warm and inviting, Don Juan's employees welcome us with a smile. Great food, libations and always willing to accommodate. We celebrated Mother's Day here and had just gotten engaged. There was a Mariachi singer who entertained us and the Manager treated us to a celebratory drink. Always clean, I have tried many entrees, from their tacos, fajitas, tamales and... More

How could I have lived in Jacksonville for so long, and not heard of this fine restaurant??? I keep asking myself. This is, by far, the best Mexican Restaurant in town. Perhaps, because it's at the extreme southern part of the city, I've never been by it, or heard of it. The other night we were looking for a good... More
