In his famous classical conditioning experiment, Ivan Pavlov proved that it’s physically impossible for a Russian scientist's mouth not to water when it says the word “burrito.” Moisten your own tortilla receptacle with today’s Groupon to Casa Don Juan on South Main Street.

Casa Don Juan's menu brims with true-to-roots Mexican dishes, prepared with fresh, never-frozen ingredients. Diners can order a travel-packed burrito mojado, filled with their meat of choice, salsa, cheese, and guacamole ($7.99), or a stuffed torta, a Mexican sandwich with beans, choice of meat, lettuce, tomato, guacamole, and mayonnaise ($6.99), perfectly designed to be enjoyed while heading back to work or running from a grudge-holding produce-ghoul. Nighttime diners can sit down to a steaming Plato Casa Don Juan, featuring two pork chops or chicken breasts, chorizo, rice, beans, cactus salad, and guacamole ($16.99), or a brace of tostadas mixta, swimming with fish, shrimp, and octopus mixed with pico de gallo and avocado ($6.99).
Complementing the restaurant’s border-honoring dishes, Casa Don Juan’s authentic décor provides a true south-of-Texas feel. The centrally located thatch-roof bar houses a litany of liquors and Mexican pottery. Dishes adorn the walls and a trained guitarist strums traditional Mexican music. For patrons with an uncontrollable urge to scream their favorite songs during family dinners, Casa Don Juan offers live karaoke every Wednesday.
Casa Don Juan
The freezer cases in Casa Don Juan's kitchen make great echo chambers. They stand almost empty because the crew crafts the menu of traditional Mexican dishes exclusively with fresh, never-frozen ingredients.
Frida Kahlo prints peer down on diners as they chow down on plates of cheese-stuffed chili rellenos, cheese enchiladas, and beans. Plato Casa Don Juan, with its heaping portions of pork chops or chicken breast with mexican sausage, rice, and cactus salad, provides patrons with an ideal place to hide their favorite lucky pennies.
Festive streamers of colorful cutouts flutter above Casa Don Juan's jumbo Cadillac margaritas, which brim with tequila, Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy's mix, and Grand Marnier. Standing tall in the middle of the dining room, a thatch-roof bar houses a chorus of liquors and Mexican pottery, and a kaleidoscopic array of gleaming plates lines the bright-yellow walls to memorialize the chef's blank canvas.
