I have been going to Juan's since I was a child. Even though I live in a different city now, whenever we come back to visit Fort Smith, Juan's is a must for my family's itinerary. The cheese dip is the best in the world - you can't find it like this anywhere else! Love the salsa too. I always... More

Had dinner here while spending the night nearby. The "Americana" sign drew us in. I don't believe any Mexicans work here, but the staff are friendly and gracious. Spouse and I both had wet chicken burritos. Good flavor, nice portion size, good price. Chips were tasty, too. Salsa could use more jazz, but for their regular customers, I'm sure it's... More

I agree with previous reviews....Salsa was like ketchup....cheese dip was awful, thick and cold. Rice tasted like Spanish rice out of a box. Dont waste your time or your money here!!

Salsa has no flavor and neither does the guacamole. Food is served on TV dinner-style plates and the servers are as old as the paint scheme. Had dinner with a friend the manager knew and the manager interrupted our dismal lunch no fewer than 12 (count 'em) times to "chat". Stay away....you're better off buying a 99 cent gas station...

My B-n-L raved about this place and the Chile Relleno Special. I ordered the 1/2 pound fajitas, I received a platter of mostly onions and peppers with very little meat. What little chicken there was, was so dried out that it was unappetizing. The salsa tastes like it is made with ketchup.

Taste like tv dinner, yuck! Salsa was like ketchup. Very few drink options. It was not authentic. Not one Hispanic in staff, not even in kitchen.

The atmosphere is a little lacking, but the food and service are very good. We ordered the E. lunch special which was a soft taco and enchilada, and the shrimp. Just the right size for lunch- they give you plenty of chips and salsa. We had a cheese dip, and tea and the bill was under $20. Hope you enjoy... More

The place was really dirty and old. I saw dust everywhere. The chip sauce was def. not made there and served out of a bucket prob a 5 gallon bucket shipped in from somewhere.

I have been going to Juan's since I was a litte girl. The food is the same as always, very good. I crave their chips and salsa, which is different from other restaurants. I always order the chili rellano, rice and a cheese enchilada.
