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 they were great! I loved that they come with zucchini and mushrooms. Only negative is... 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 not care for the dark salsa, but opted instead for pico de gallo, guacamole, and... 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. The food was good. Fajitas were small portions, but tasty. Guacamole was good. Overall, I'd... More

I just wait every year for the venison fajitas. They are so delicious. The meat is tender and succulent. Their paella is very, very good. Around Thanksgiving they make these risotto filled pumpkins which are incredible. Their salsa is made from oven roasted veggies and is very unique. They have fantastic traditional Mexican but they are always changing their menu... 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.

I've driven and walked by this restaurant so many times and didn't think to stop in. Wow was I blown away!!! The inside is enormous! And so cozy. I feel like I'm visiting a giant home of a distant relative. It's so cozy, clean, and beautiful. The wooden ceilings are comforting. The server was very polite and kind. I enjoyed... More

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 tables in the restaurant for a Friday night.

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 near the Metra line and fits in like a comfortable shoe. We were glad we... 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 ordered our entrees and waited a long time for our food. When it finally came... More
