Service was poor. Wait staff was very unfriendly. Food was awful. Would not go back. Tried to ask questions but she just walked away.

We are from the Houston area in Texas so we eat Mexican food a lot and the quesadillas at JJ's are the best we have had anywhere!

We came with empty stomachs and high hopes for this restaurant. While many of the reviews boast high quality and authentic Mexican cuisine, La Puerta left little to be desired. We ordered guac and salsa, which were brought to the table quickly. The guac was...More

There is something for everyone at JJ's La Puerta! It is a relaxing and non-assuming place to hangout with family and friends. There is a bar, table seating, and booths for families. Family friendly for sure!

Fun, festive decor. Friendly, quick service. The food was really good. The chips and salsa were pretty flavorful. I ordered chicken quesadillas with a side of rice and they were really tasty as well. I also ordered a strawberry daiquiri--it was strong and delicious.

There's nothing good I can say about this place. Went there at 8:00 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was so over crowded our companion who is a fireman commented that they must be violating the fire code. Tables almost blocking the door and packed...More

Great casual place to eat and socialize with others. The food is great-best chips/salsa and margaritas in Door County. House shot: The Bernie. Ring the bell! Sugar Shack Tiki Bar on the water located behind JJ's for sunset!
