A group of friends and I had lunch during the Christmas holiday last year and it was so festive with all the colored lights. The menu offered combos which is great, so you can try a couple of different dishes. I believe I had a taco and burrito where were very good. However, the highlight of the meal was the... More

The menu selection is huge, never had the same thing to eat. Great place to go if you'd like to practice speaking Spanish with the waiters, service is excellent. The margaritas are excellent.

Very good food and quick service with a smile. I have never had a bad meal from San Juan. The decor is a bit on the tacky side but it spurs fun conversations. The price is great for any of the food items or a la carte. Something for everyone. The salsa is delicious and the chips are very good.

I've tried shrimp fajitas at other really good Mexican restaurants, but none compare to San Juan's. I will definitely stop again when I visit this area. Excellent service, excellent menu choices. If you're in the mood for Mexican and you're... More

Good service, reasonable prices, large portions, and the food was good. No complaints and it worked well as a quick stop on a road trip.

The best Mexican food I've ever had. Everyone should try when in the Alleghany Highlands. Everything I've had has been wonderful.

The food is awesome! Cheese sauce or San Juan dip for chips is great! Chimichangas or Fajittas is the best! Sweet tea is great! The Cheesecake is the best !!!! You'll be going back and back after the first time you eat there.

Large serving sizes. Food was a little bland, but service was fast and servers were polite and friendly. There were a lot of guests present and they were having a good time.
