Went on a Thursday night looking for pozole and only found disappointment. Service was very slow and only came over when I flagged them down. Ordered guacamole and chicken pazole. Guacamole came out 15 minutes later and did not look fresh. Half the chips were stale too. The pozole came out shortly after. Small bowl but hearty. Lacked any real... More

We went almost every night for dinner. We try several different dishes and we were very pleased with everything from appetizers to dessert. The service got better and better every day!

My wife and I ate at Don Juanito Taqueria & Pozoleria three different times during our week visiting Oaxaca. Returning to eat at the same restaurant, should alone be a testament to a good experience, especially in a city so full of many wonderful places to dine. The reasons for us becoming repeat customers was because of the delicious tasting... More

really, we went back to this place after we tried a bunch of other restaurants in town, as it was really the most reliable. wasn't "oh my god the most amazing ever", but totally reliable for great salsas, super pozole, tacos, etc... and VERY sweet service.

We loved Don Juanito! We ate there 4 times during our 6 day stay in Oaxaca. The pozole is awesome! Good food and service, and the prices are average for the area.

Here with family. Food consistently excellent, friendly and efficient service, prices less than half what you would pay in the more touristy areas. Traditional Oaxaca fare, very well executed. Walk the couple of blocks from the zocalo, it's worth it!

Reasonally priced, very good food, you have to try a pozole. If you have a hangover this is the place to go!

We really enjoyed our dinner and an additional lunch at Don Juanito. They really went out of there way to make sure our mother (87 years old) had everything she needed. They explained the menu well and we loved it. Delish chicken on tortillas. The cheese, Oaxaca cheese, need I say more?

After spending the day searching for a great meal, and not succeeding, this was a welcome change! It was recommended by someone we met at the craft beer bar; I'm so glad that we talk to him. The food is authentic, delicious, and very reasonably priced. Additionally the atmosphere is attractive, and pleasant. It is very close to the Zocalo,... More

Good prices on the beer, lovely benches by open air windows and tasty tacos all at a good price - what more need I say?! Top it all off with good and friendly service. This is the place for lunch after walking the town.
