Going to visit some friends and need to know a good mexican food place to have dinner. Does not have to be on the strip. How about off strip?

          Could you tell us a little bit about Casa Don Juan? I'm not familiar with it.

            i ran across casa don juan a couple years ago and have lunch there every now and then. they are very busy for lunch but it's fairly good size and i have always been seated right away. they give you good guacamole and chips to start. everything good. i like their carnitas and carne asada. to the left from entry is a shrine to frida kahlo. the staff seems like they have been there since day one. very comfortable lunch place. i've never done dinner.

                For those who do not know, Frida Kahlo was a famous Mexican artist married to another famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera.
