Tamales and tacos were good, but the chili rellenos were less than spectacular. Positive note is that there was no "yellow" cheese on the dish. This indicates somewhat a level of authenticity.

If you are looking for good Mexican food and good drinks, go to this place. We visit this place maybe 4 to 5 times a year. We also enjoyed their buffet; they have it every Sunday. They have a variety of omelet, fresh waffles, soups, chicken mole, and different Mexican dishes, fresh fruits and salads. You will surely enjoy the... More

Went to Palmdale for a friends wedding and during my free time I went to Don Juan Mexican Seafood. The hostess was helpful in her suggestions, the service was spot on, and the flavors, fantastic. Salsa was chunky with just enough kick, the chips light and crispy. The Mexican Shrimp Cocktail was a burst of fresh flavors, lime, cilantro, shrimp,... More

We always stop in for the happy hour snacks which are excellent but today we needed a bit more. I had the pork chili Verde burrito and it was incredibly delicious! My wife had the chicken tostada grande and loved it! Don Juans is the best!!!!

Passing through on the way from Ventura to Vegas via Vasquez Rocks Park. Tasty, affordable Mexican fare. I had the crab quesadilla which actually had real crab in it. A little slow for service, especially given how we nearly had the place to itself, but the food made it worthwhile. RECOMMENDED.

Don Juan's is my 'go to' Mexican restaurant out here. Good service and the food has always been great... and good margaritas. My favorite is the shrimp fajitas. Enough for two. (just ask for an extra tortilla)

Dishes can get a little pricey and the service has been lacking a time or two, but then every server is, I'm sure, prone to having an off day here or there. That being said, let me break this down for you. Theres a dish they serve here called 'carne tampiceña' (my best guess on the spelling). What we're talking... More

We've eaten at Don Juan's when they were at their other location, and their excellent quality continued to their new, bigger location. My husband and I have gone there alone, with our two kids, and with our bible study group (25+ people), and the quality remains excellent. Highly recommend Don Juan's!

Found this place on line through trip advisor. I was not disappointed! The food was wonderful the menu huge and the prices decent. We had a party of 7 the service was outstanding! Our drinks were never empty and neither were our chips and salsa. The servers were very attentive but not over bearing. We had a wide variety of... More
