“Consistently great burritos!”
Reviewed 30 July 2011

With all the great eating available in Silver City, the first place we hit on our return trip was... Don Juan's. We love a creative, inventive chef and a fun "dining experience" - but when we're hungry, we crave the reliable comfort food that Don Juan's does so well.

We can't imagine why anybody would start their morning with an Egg McBoring at a fast food chain when they could drive through Don Juan's and, for $3.50, have a fresh, tasty breakfast burrito. Ditto for lunch. The Whimper and Big Gack are OK in a pinch, but Don Juan's provide real food, satisfying the body and soul.

We were only able to work three visits in during a recent week in SC - but we like everything we've been able to try on the menu. Our favorite is the Machacha - shredded beef and potatoes reminiscent of a Michigan pasty but with a mild southwestern kick.

“Great one-hand meal on the go ...”
Reviewed 5 February 2011

It is a drive thru, not a sit down restaurant, so none of the restaurant rating is applicable.
Been grabbing these burritos for years and still look forward to them every time. Always tasty and filling, never "greasy" or messy, quite the selection. I like the chorizo and egg with picadillo in the morning and the chicharon when I want some crunch. Always good!

“My favorite burritos in SC”
Reviewed 17 December 2010

Chile relleno burrito and chicharron burrito...need I say more?! Really, nothing fancy, but damn good. I'm a snooty chef in town and this is my favorite burrito...wish they did late night food.

“Good Food Fast!”
Reviewed 27 November 2010

Often we have to choose between good food and fast food... but Don Juan's meets both criteria. By keeping the menu simple they can make good, fresh burritos of amazing quality for remarkably low prices.

There are about 7 different breakfast burritos and 10 lunch burritos. They are $3.50 regular and $4.25 smothered. We ate here three times in a week and liked everything we tried.

It's fun to watch the endless string of vehicles pulling up to the window on one side of the building, placing their orders, then driving around the small building to pick up orders at the opposite window... cops and bikers, blue collar truckers and folks in suits on the way to the office. The parade is pretty much continuous through breakfast and lunch.

“Best burritos in the Silver City area!”
Reviewed 12 June 2010

Don't be fooled by the appearance of Don Juan's; it might not look like much but we were very impressed by what the burritos we had the other day. A small but brightly coloured shack with a drive-up window (located on the southside of NM 180 just east of the junction with NM 90), it's open 6 days a week from 6am to 7pm. Several people had told us to stop by the place and our expections were exceeded. There's a choice of about 10 breakfast and 10 lunch burritos, all priced at a very reasonable $3.50. We tried both the carnitas and picadillo (stuffed with minced beef and toasted pico de gallo) and the latter was one of the best burritos I've ever had. It wasn't overladen with ingredients, was filling without being heavy, and had exactly the right balance in terms of taste and texture. So many places try to stuff as much as possible into a burrito which results in a soggy mass. Definitely one of best places to grab a bite to eat in Silver City.
