Old Juan's has great Mexican food. Generous portions and good choices for kids. Chips and salsa isn't the best I've had, but the entrees were fantastic.

This is a very nice Mexican Restaurant. The margaritas were the best I have had in a long time. I ordered the flantas and they were perfect. We had great service and parking was no problem.
