Rafael makes this place great. My wife and I from Colorado and have been here 8 years. We found Juan Colorados 5 yrs ago and love it. We could not find anything to compare to what we had found in Colorado and the Manager Rafael was very nice from the start and offered to make us whatever we wanted. He uses fresh ingriedients and the food is delicious.
Juan Colorado's on Barbur has a lot to do with the management!.
One day while out cold calling (At the time I was a sales rep and called on restaurants quite a bit for my company's services) I stumbled across a place that was close to my home (At the time). I met the manager, Rafael and we talked a lot about my business and his, he was a very pleasant person to deal with but unfortunate for me already had received a service similar to mine and was happy. I ended up calling a friend because I had walked a good 3 miles from my parked car for a ride and offered to buy him dinner at this particular place. Since then I have come back on several occasions.
The food is fantastic and as my friend put it, "Margaritas as big as your head!" And these aren't you run of the mill Jose Cuervo margaritas. No, no these are made with freshly squeezed juices and Cazadores Tequila. If you're driving order the small and stick with one as they will sneak up on you.
Rafael is the guy that makes the magic in this place happen. He's a fantastic manager and does a very good job of making everything come together. It?s a great place for 20 somethings to go and have a good meal at a decent price with wonderful "adult beverages" yet it has a quiet and nice family atmosphere. I highly recommend this place for people of all walks. If you see Rafael when you come in tell him that Luke sent you.
