Most places I enjoy get a few return visits by my family but this place is definitely on our top returns. Authenticity of Mexican food is truly what the palate needs. The owner and his crew really make you feel comfortable and want to enjoy the food!!

Authentic Mexican Cuisine. Tacos, Enchiladas, Quesadillas and much more...
This place is a great little find. The people working there were so nice, the food fresh and very good. Perfect size portions. There is parking behind the place and you can enter through the back door. Will definitely come here again. Very inexpensive meals.

Don Juan is a small local restaurant in the Valley section of West Orange with parking on the street (usually not a problem). It is not really a Mexican restaurant in the true sense of the word though there are some dishes (tacos, enchiladas) that most would identify as such. The food is what I would characterize as pan-Central American. My favorites are the tostones with guacamole appetizer, camarones al ajillo (shrimp in garlic), and casado tico al gusto (a platter with rice, beans, plantains, and choice of meat/chicken). This is not haute cuisine by any means, but it is both good and authentic and relatively inexpensive. They do now serve alcohol (a cold Modelo goes well with these dishes). The service can be a bit slow sometimes, but I have never experienced that to the point that it was bothersome. I would recommend Don Juan if you are in the area and would like a taste of Latin America at a reasonable price.

4 friends out to dinner. Very noisy; tough to dialogue. We each ordered 4 tacos. Nobody (including me) felt they would order the same tacos again. The service was average. The price ($6/taco) was a bit steep, considering that 2 tacos do NOT make a meal (they are unusually small). We wouldn't order any $26 entree in THIS place.

Typical Chipotle in strip mall location, busy, but generally handles the lunch rush well. Menu is standard so it comes down does the person behind the glass really understand the art of making a burrito, and that is a hit or miss everytime. Someday someone will open a real Mexican restaurant in NJ with good food and good service, but for now there is Chipotle.
