Today, however, we decided to try it again and were pleasantly surprised! We were quickly seated and the service was the best we have ever had here. Our food came... More

K and I went out to shop and dropped in for Mexican food at Don Juans. Seated quickly and drinks brought to table and waiter ask if we had questions. Very attentive and efficient. Guacamole was order along with chips and salsa. Guacamole was lacking flavor but salsa was rocking with flavor and heat. I was disappointed that they wanted... More

The service was OK, but the food was really terrible. The prices were high, the chips were fair, but the salsa was good. That was the only positive about this place!

I had a 3 enchilada dinner the first night and took one home. On our second trip I ordered 2 chicken... More

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.

Don't pass this place by because it's located in the mall. It has the BEST Mexican food I've ever eaten. We use to live in Hot Springs and came here every week but 2 years ago we moved and had not had a chance to come back yet. Still tastes just as good as I remember. Haven't been able to... More
