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

Consistently outstanding food and service. Well run with the best Mexican food. Owners are always there and the service and food reflect it.

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
