Clean and well staffed with good prices and tasty Mexican food, and awesome Top Shelf Margarita's. Usually pretty busy but open tables are sometime available outside without the wait, (where smoking is permitted).

Ate Saturday night here with family. Something was missing and not nearly as good as it was a year ago when I ate there. My daughter both gave it a 6 on a one to ten scale. Service was good from a blonde haired young woman. Did a great job. Spice in my enchilada tasted like only chili powder???? Waitress... More

Don Juan's is always a great dining experience. I have been here several times and we (my family and I) always leave very satisfied. The service is great and their Margarita are my wife's favorite if you go with top shelf tequila. Kids love the Nacho Con Queso. This is a great Locals Spot. Out of Towners, give it a... More

Really yummy food and a great atmosphere. I know the restaurant is in Florida and many may not consider the fare authentic Mexican, but I do. The veggie burrito was really great and the queso is out of this world.

This restaurant is one of the most authentic experiences I have ever had in a Mexican restaurant. I had a enchilada/tamale combo plate. It tasted fresh and delicious. I did not have a mixed drink (I see a lot of complaints regarding the drinks) so I cannot speak to that aspect of the restaurant. I would highly recommend Don Juan's.

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

I've eaten at Don Juans at least once a month over the past year since moving to area. Best Mexican restaurant I've found in Jacksonville. Staff are always friendly, food is fantastic, prices OK. Recommend highly.

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
