Went to Don Juan's and had the Goat Cheese stuffed Pablano pepper which was great. My wife had the Fish Tacos and loved them. Service was very good.

I've driven and walked by this restaurant so many times and didn't think to stop in. Wow was I blown away!!! The inside is enormous! And so cozy. I feel like I'm visiting a giant home of a distant relative. It's so cozy, clean, and beautiful. The wooden ceilings are comforting. The server was very polite and kind. I enjoyed... More

For the price you pay, the margaritas are very small. No complaints on the food. It was decent, but nothing to write home about. The guacamole was delicious though -very flavorful. It also wasn't very busy - I felt awkward being one of the only tables in the restaurant for a Friday night.

Our large group received excellent service. The food was above average overall after enjoying guacamole appetizers and plenty of chips and salsa. The pitchers of margaritas helped but do yourself a favor and get the ones with better quality tequila. This is a neighborhood place near the Metra line and fits in like a comfortable shoe. We were glad we... More

I am surprised to see this considered upscale Mexican. The prices qualify as upscale but the food beginning with the overcooked chips and salsa was far below expectations. The chips and salsa were pretty bland and the spicy salsa wasn't the least bit spicy. We ordered our entrees and waited a long time for our food. When it finally came... More

Excellent upscale Mexican Restaurant. Just right portions of food, not like other restaurants that give you a weeks worth of food. Service is great, not sure who checked on us (Mgr/ owner?) but he was very friendly and made sure we were comfortable.

We came here for our anniversary with a Groupon. Im glad we had the Groupon or it would not have been worth it. The portions were pretty small. My husband ordered a borrito and it was the size of an enchalada. There were 3 spoonfulls of beans and the same of rice. Not sure if they were trying to save... More
