Finally!

My husband is from San Antonio and we are constantly disappointed whenever we go out to try any Mexican in the area. We have been to numerous places in the area only to never return. We will definitely be back to Don Juan's! The food actually had flavor. If the restaurant were located in SA we... read more

This place has very good Mexican food for Jacksonville Florida. ( We lived in Texas where Mexican food was a religion.) The fish tacos are especially nice. The place is huge and would be fun for a large group. I first went with girlfriends about three months ago and have returned with other friends and my husband and I also... More

I recently ordered to go for dinner and after arriving I wish we had been able to stay and eat in the restaurant. I did not get the bartenders name but honestly she was the nicest I've met since moving to the area. Next time I will go and eat at the bar just to chat with her (super sweet... More

Read the reviews and was a little unsure about this place, but we were craving Mexican and it was close to the hotel. Our waiter was really good and was quick. My food was excellent. I got the burrito, enchilada, and hard taco combo. The ground beef and chicken was great. My wife got the carne asada and it was... More

We went to Don Juan's yesterday and were overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of our lunch. We cannot imagine how large the dinner entrees must be. We were greeted by the owner and spent about 15 minutes talking to him - such a pleasure to meet someone whose dreams have come true. It shows what a dream and hard... More

Finding good Mexican food is very difficult on this side of the Rio Grande. We stopped at this restaurant in Jacksonville on Cinco de Mayo because we wanted Mexican food and we saw that the parking lot was very full. Checking Tripadvisor, we saw mostly positive reviews, so we decided to give it a try. It was very good. The... More

Love the margaritas and large selection of food. Service is great and the owner always comes out to say hi! Salsa is excellent and chips always perfect.

I’ve been going to Don Juan’s on San Jose Boulevard for at least 2 years now, as my “go to” Mexican restaurant. When they first relocated/opened here, I tried it and I liked it but I had another (La well known, multi-location) restaurant that was favored at the time. Service decline at my old favorite led me back to Don... More
