This IS our go-to Mexican restaurant. The owner is always sweet and attentive. The food is super delicious. I have eaten here MANY times and the food is always spot on. There is not a sub-par dish. Order anything and you'll be satisfied. The carne...More

Cute smaller restaurant but a great home-y feel to the family owned place. Chips and salsa were good, salsa is a little spicy but great smoky flavor. Guac is awesome! We got it without the Serrano peppers though. I got the skirt steak fajitas and...More

We ate at Don Juan's this afternoon. It was our first time at this restaurant, which is located in Edison Park, on Northwest Hwy. The food was excellent! The margaritas were hand mixed and delicious. The owner came by and checked on us. We did...More

Staff did not seem ready for customers, although they were open and we had a reservation. Our party of 6, was seated for quite a while before anyone came by to ask if we wanted drinks, and a lot longer before they took our order....More

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.

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...More

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...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...More
