Don Juan – Mexican Go To!

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... read more

To start off I must say the salsa is amazing and that's the only reason I even give it a two and not a one. I ordered and another person other than my server brought out my food. I knew right off it was not what I ordered. I told her but she assured me it was. My husband just... More

The waiter promptly arrived and took my order. The food, chips and salsa all came at the same time. Never saw the waiter or anyone else until the waiter brought my check. Probably won't go back, as the food is just mediocre.

Bland, tasteless, and what happened to red enchilada sauce you see in CA, CO and TX? Can any mexican restaurant in Jacksonville make mexican food without the white cheese whiz sauce on it? Salsa was watery and bland as well. Service was good but nothing to write home about. The search continues.

Having searched far and wide for good Mexican food we tried Don Juan's. It is pretty close to what we are used to. The service is always good.

The waiter was nice! I ordered a Carme Asada Taco. The menu said, 'Onions and Cilantro on the side.' It never occurred to me that all I'd get was a flat flour tortilla with cold meat on it... a little plastic cup of onions and cilantro. No cheese, lettuce, tomato? Taco Bell does better than that!

Speedy service, friendly staff, great atmosphere! The food was amazing. The complimentary chips and salsa were freaking amazing! Never before have I tasted such a perfect fresh salsa! The queso dip was great as well but I appreciate a good salsa!

Quality over quantity. Polite timely service. Fresh salsa. Clean restrooms. Manager stopped by. Definitely recommend. Would like to come in the evening for a margarita.

We keep going back and it never disapoints. Service is always great, the bar scene is top notch, and the food is always fresh and amazing! Try something different if you get to go. The Cochinta Pibl, the carnitas, the Enchiladas Poblano (Great Mole) They also have the best Chicken Soup in the world!

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
