Great service, attentive and friendly servers. The owner checks on you at your table! Salsa is so good you will need several refills; and the servers fill your bowl without your even noticing! Shrimp quesadillas are to die for; you can ask for onions, peppers and tomatoes to be added. When paying your bill at the checkout counter be sure... More

Have eaten here a number of times. Average mexican food for me, but convenient location. Very crowded for Sunday lunch crowd. Gets a bit warm, but wait staff does good job. I do wish they kitchen ventilation system worked better. Always leave with my clothes smelling like the food.

This is a fairly typical "yellow cheese" type restaurant. I would put the quality equal to El Chico or Monterrey. The service here is nice, though. The people are very good to the patrons and food is served quickly, hot, and correctly made. The facility is a little on the old and dingy side, but knowing how old the building... More

Average quick Mexican food - nothing special about the place. Just grub. The staff is friendly, but that's all I have for this one. Just typical and quick.

My dad and I stopped in here on our way through Atlanta, TX because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. My dad had the bean soup and apple pie. I had spinach quesadilla and flan. All was excellent! The service was very good and friendly. The meal was very inexpensive, too.

For this small East TX town the food here is very good and the price is very fair. The service is very good and served fast. We have been there at least 5 or 6 times.

Uncle Juan's is a great Mexican restaurant right in the middle of downtown Atlanta, TX. I eat there everytime I'm in town. The service is fast and friendly, food is very good, and reasonably priced. The restaurant is very basic and plain inside, but the food makes up for that. You definitely should try Uncle Juan's.
