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.

Don Juan's in Tenino has always been a popular restaurant. They have just opened a new location in West Olympia. It lives up to its reputation as a home made, fresh, family style place. We love Mexican food and this was very good. The service...More

We eat here every couple of months. The menu is smaller than many Mexican restaurants and I think that improves the quality. I especially like their fish tacos. They have also opened a restaurant on the west side of Olympia.
