Food was amazing. Service was excellent. Three people dined and it was very reasonably priced. The chicken burritos were delicious. The beef tacos were also amazing. Couldn't stop eatig the torilla chips with salsa. Fantastic dining experience found by reading reviews on Trip Advisor and Google.

A great place to have Mexican and drinks without blowing the budget. Salsa is spicy and chips are endless. My favorite is the fajita taco salad while my wife likes the burritos. Beans are good and we always get a double order and skip the rice.

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.

Thank krisr101
