My friend and I went for lunch. The guacamole was great. Very creamy with good flavor. The salsa had no heat and reminded me of spaghetti sauce. My nachos were fine but nothing exceptional. I tried two of their different varieties of margaritas. I wasn't impressed with either. I've had Margarita mixes from Walmart with more flavor. The atmosphere and... More

Don Juan's is our new favorite Mexican restaurant. We eat there at lease three times a month. Cinco De Mayo was fantastic! They had authentic Mexican dancers of all ages perform, Mexican band was wonderful, the margaritas were fantastic. We can't wait till next year to bring our lawn chairs and just hang out. They close off half the parking... More

My family and I just moved to Jax after having lived in Southern California 20' from the Mexican border for 15 years. I had heard a couple of people speak highly of Don Juan's so we gave it a try. There was nothing authentic about this restaurant but some of the servers. The salsa tasted like canned tomato sauce (terrible!!).... More

The food is good with good flavor and good service. Margaritas are good, however I would prefer them a bit stronger and less waterdown. More Tequila would make them excellent

This was a great choice to celebrate Cinco De Mayo! The police made sure people crossed the street safely because parking overflowed there. They were set up outside offering beer and margaritas while you waited for your table. Later in the evening, there was live entertainment in the parking lot with music and dancers. Food is always good here and... More

Very nice place, excellent food and amicable service. Great variety of Mexican dishes that are close to the real thing, they do have to lean a bit to the American taste. Never tired of going there for lunch or dinner

This is the best Mexican Restaurant in Jacksonville. The owners always come around to check on you, because they care if you are happy! Ate almost everything on the menu and loved everything I have tried. We come here at least 3 times a month. Been here for lunch and dinner!

This was my first visit tonight and I liked it a lot. Margaritas were good, the chips were fresh and warm, the table salsa was quite good and tasted fresh made. I ordered the combination plate (enchilada, tamale, chili rellano, and beans and rice). Enjoyed everything. Not the absolute best I've ever had, but really not bad at all. Service... More
