Mr. Juan's is an average Mexican restaurant in all ways. The decor, the service and the food were all average. We had four meals, none were bad, nor were they great. There were some better options for Mexican in the area.

My kids liked their chicken quesadillas, but my fajitas were beyond overdone. The steak was like shoe leather. The chicken was dry. The shrimp was actually cooked well, however, the whole thing had virtually no flavor. Really a big disappointment. The decor is in desperate need of an update - seat covers are all ripped up and it just looks... More

Wonderful food and fresh. Would eat here again if we didn't live 500 miles away. Friendly service. Loved the salsa! Seems to be family owned and well taken care. Lots of choices on the menu!

Everything, including the service was excellent! We will be going back to eat there again before we head back home to Florida! Eating at Mr. Juan's was... More

There it was: oyster po'boy, right on the menu. It was comforting just to order that. And it really wasn't bad. The salsa and chips make a great opening and after, I'd say a good number of typical choices (beef, pork, etc.) plus enough seafood options for me to want to come back. And I did...come back. Second visit, both... More

I was initially enthused to see a wide selection of vegetarian options and all the typical Mexican food I like to order at an authentic Mexican restaurant. Spinach quesadillas turned out to be canned spinach (tinted a little brown and a little black) wrapped in a flour tortilla sans cheese. An order of chicken flautas yielded me some taquitos with...

OK This is the worst food and drink I have had own over 30 years!!! The best Margaritas tasted like the mix can from an envelope. It had a metallic taste to it. I ordered the rib eye and most expensive item on the bill of fare. The steak was marinated in a sauce which was overpowering. The worst steak... More
