When we visit Family in Belvedere we always go to DeJuans and have always had a great meal. This time the place seemed different. First it was Friday night and there were a lot of empty tables. In the past we always had to wait...More

My wife and I went here with our daughter, her husband, and their two kids. Most of us had fajitas. The chips and salsa were good. The chicken fajitas were a bit bland. Not a lot of flavor. We've been going here for 15 years....More

Margaritas are outstanding! Enchiladas En Mole are the best in a 40-mi radius. Portions are generous. Service is prompt and courteous. Small, but great character. Vamos a regresar otra vez y otra vez!

Reasonably priced, small, quaint restaurant. Nothing fancy, but really good, Mexican food. The appetizers are outstanding!!! Free chips and salsa as well.

I'm not sure how this place can tout that they have "authentic" Mexican food. I ordered vegetarian enchiladas and they came filled with INSTANT mashed potatoes, topped with what appeared to be a ketchup-y sauce. The guacamole was also well below subpar...I'm not even sure...More

We went here for several years until several things happened. The food is tasty and the service is good, but the bathrooms, especially the men's bathroom became filthier every visit. They have a good enough business that they could afford to take care of this...More

I have been going there for years and have never been disappointed. Nice variety on the menu, and great margaritas. Nothing fancy, but a great value on authentic dishes.

It was our first visit and they did not disappoint. Not a spot for a romantic dinner, but if you want good food at a fair price this is the place. They have a bar although we did not partake that evening.
