I have ate here many times, and must say the wait staff is excellent, the quality of food is consistently good. My particular favorite is the Burrito meal, wife prefers the fajitas, My kids vary as to favorites, but no matter what you get, it is always good.

I'm really hoping we just came here on an off day because everything was just horribly bland. I ordered the queso as a starter because I figured- who could go wrong with queso. When it came out I could immediately tell something was going to be wrong when I noticed the texture and color. The flavor was like a watered... More

We eat at Don' Juan's at least once a week and the food and service are always superior. The chips and Salsa are fresh and everything is made to order. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed and laid back.

Food is beyond bland and cold. My husbands work has taken him there a few times and he hates it every time. Don Juans near Daingerfield State Park is the only one we'll go to.

Was not impressed. My husband and I went on a recommendation. Sorry to say that this was not much better than a TV dinner.
