Thought I was drinking straight "cheap" tequila in a Styrofoam cup cheap all around except price...cheese sauce had no flavor and was cold we asked for Pico to mix in it helps.

If you like good mexican food visit mt favorite place Don Juan's here in Jefferson. Not only is the food good but the people are so friendly. Believe me you will want to visit them more than once a month and get some of their Chips and dip.

Not planning to go there again. Tortilla soup was so salty, I sent it back. There was a beer bottle cap in our chips! We won't be back!

We wanted something more local for our dinner. This place came highly recommended. Server was prompt and friendly. I had a beef stew meal, Judy had chicken fajitas. Both delicious.

While the service was slow & it was obvious the locals were receiving the better service, the food was good, but the green sauce was fantastic!

I'm a regular here, and have been to this restaurant at least a hundred times as I live nearby. The servers are always friendly, and even remember my order when I walk in! Very good flavor, and the place is always kept clean. Low prices. I always look forward to eating here. To those of you who left negative reviews... More
