Have been here a few times & I enjoy it. I didnt think chicken wings in a Mexican restaurant would be that good, but if you like a hot sauce coating, these are some of the most flavorful wings I've had in JAX. I usually get the burrito, enchilada, taco combo and while not as great as homemade this place... More

This place is no different than the hundreds of other Mexican restaurants and eateries I have been to. Seasoned meat, wrap it in something and dump sauce on it. To be above average, I would need to see some fresher ingredients and some more care put into the food. Service was good, price was good, food was just O.K. If... More

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.
