We've been here numerous times, and have never been disappointed. When the weather in nice, opt to eat on their outdoor patio. Even their tortilla chips and salsa are homemade. We've taken friends and family there, and they were just as impressed.

Among the very nest I have eaten. Always crowded and that makes the service slow, but the wait is worth it. I recommend the steak fajita. Also has a tequila bar stocked with some excellent spirits.

I love that fact they don't blare loud obnoxious mariachi music, but rather a classy soft sound that lets you talk and enjoy the environment. The steak ,chicken and shrimp tacos are great. Their sauces are awesome and add even more flavor to their tacos....More

Another amazing meal at Don Juans. You can't go wrong eating here. From the margaritas to there avocado dip. Main courses are all amazing. They won't say, so you'll have to ask for the avocado dip even tho they are famous for it.

As always food was good and although we were enjoying each other's company it took almost an hour to get our food, 3 people had finished their first beer before I got my first margarita.
