“Bargin food, informal atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Initially we were somewhat dissapointed in this resturante as it was less formal than a typical mexican restaurant. it was lounder and seating was mostly chairs and tables not booths. but after we ate we realized the food was good, and the price was amazing. After eating at a few other spots on the island we realized this was one of the best bargins with quality of food for the price. If you are lookign for a fancy sitdown this is not it.

“Great service, great value, ok food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

We stopped here without knowing anything about it- the front of the neat looking building says "San Juan Restaurant"- we were craving some Mexican, so it sounded like our place! The specials were $5 fajitas and $3 ritas. The drinks were great, the fajitas were pretty good (not wonderful, but ok) - beef, chicken or shrimp. FYI: my daughter wasn't crazy about her carne asada burrito. The staff was attentive, and friendly and the service was great. We were a bit early for dinner, so there were only a few cars in the lots when we arrived, but when were were leaving, it was filling up fast.

“Best Mexican in Port Aransas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Great food and lots of it. Noisy due to the popularity of the establishment. Better than average Mexican Food. Lots of selections and each dish is well-prepared and better than the pictures in the menu. Always have some food left to take home, even if it is the fresh hot tortillas. All the staff and owner are very friendly and do everything they can to make your visit great.

“GREAT FAMILY OWNED AND RUN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

IN A RESORT TOWN to find a resturant thats economical and good is rare. San juans is it. Juan is about as friendly as a person can be. His family helps him staff this homey little resturant that is a local favorite. I eat mexican food all over the US and this is one of my favorites. The atmosphere is great and the food isnt bad either. Enjoy yourself and save a little coin.
