We stopped here for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food and the fast service. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall. The lunch fajitas are only $8 and they are a full meal. The service is some of the best we have enjoyed.

The menu was very large. Margaritas were also very tasty. I had shrimp with chorizo and my wife had fajitas. Both good. Service was outstanding.

If you are in the Hot Springs mall, then check out Don Juan. Good Tex-mex and reasonably priced. Service was great but they automatically added 12.5 % tip to a party of three. Check your check.

The food is good, the cheese dip is great! The staff is friendly and usually efficient. They are not usually too busy so not much of a wait.

Don Juan's is a typical Mexican restaurant. It has the normal menu items, and the food is good. The service is friendly. I don't know what more anyone would expect.
