Don Juan (El Original)

Authentic Mexican fare and a celebratory atmosphere combine to make this a local favorite. We started with two of our tried and trues, the mozzarella-stuffed peppers and the coctel de camarón, with avocado, pico de gallo, and octopus. As hard as it was to pass up the Wednesday special of $1 tacos, we ordered Juanita’s combination plate of make-your-own tacos, the platter piled high with grilled steak, pork, chorizo, poblano peppers, sautéed onions, and cheese. We also ordered (and shared) the Big Steve, an amazing margarita rumored to be made with six shots of tequila. (2/15)
