We each ordered chicken quesadillas. The meat tasted old and chewy. Was dark in color. Almost gagged trying to politely eat it. Looked at my friend's face and I could see the same expression as I was feeling. We left our food only having eaten...More

We've been coming since the day they opened and I almost hate writing a negative review. But when they opened Olympia, the food and especially the service is not as good as it used to be. Staff are running around like chickens with their heads...More

We've been here numerous times, and have never been disappointed. When the weather in nice, opt to eat on their outdoor patio. Even their tortilla chips and salsa are homemade. We've taken friends and family there, and they were just as impressed.

Among the very nest I have eaten. Always crowded and that makes the service slow, but the wait is worth it. I recommend the steak fajita. Also has a tequila bar stocked with some excellent spirits.

I love that fact they don't blare loud obnoxious mariachi music, but rather a classy soft sound that lets you talk and enjoy the environment. The steak ,chicken and shrimp tacos are great. Their sauces are awesome and add even more flavor to their tacos....More

We were visiting family in Olympia and grandkids wanted Mexican for dinner. Our daughter suggested Don Juan's and we drove the 30 minutes to Tenino hoping the reviews were accurate. Well we were more than pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, the service very good...More
