There’s a new reason to head to Reagor Springs…Don Julio’s Mexican restaurant! Friends had shared how good the food was, so we had to try it for ourselves.
Don Julio’s isn’t actually a new restaurant; it’s just new in this location. Because of rising lease prices, Don Julio’s relocated after 14 years. Mansfield’s loss is definitely our gain.
The place is large but comfortable. It has two dining rooms and a nice patio so they can accommodate a large number of people and large groups.
The menu gives visitors many options to choose from. The smell of fajitas had greeted us as we walked through the door, so we gave in to the suggestion and got them. The combination fajitas were more than enough for the two of us and came with lots of peppers and onions which I always love. The red salsa has a great taste and is mild enough for those who are heat-averse, but we also had to try the green salsa. We were warned about its heat but were pleased at the flavor which raises the spiciness of anything you put it on.
Other items on the menu looked (and smelled) equally tempting as they went by. Friends have let me know how good their other menu items truly are. The tortilla soup was especially good on a cold, wet night whereas the taco salad was perfect on a sunny day. Enchiladas and chimichangas, along with many other typical Tex-Mex items are available and no item has disappointed.
Don Julio’s has a full bar that offers margarita, beer, and good wine. We are eager to go back and try the margaritas and golfos, a menu item we had never heard of, and enjoy the entertainment. (Check their website here for dates they have live music.)
The service was wonderful. We were welcomed when we walked in the door and were seated quickly. Everyone was very friendly and prompt. They were willing to answer any and all questions. The restaurant is very family friendly and is also open to catering or renting a portion of the restaurant for a special event.
My advice? Try Don Julio’s and let us know in the comment section which is your favorite menu item.
