The food always comes out hot and delicious, Carlos and staff are always looking for ways to provide you with the best customer service possible. The Lemon Herb Chicken full plate will fill any appetite. The soup or salad is and extra perk.

Our children chose Junior's to cater our luau themed anniversary party. The food was great, arrived on time and made a hit with everyone attending. Would highly recommend.

We stopped by for breakfast. Quick, polite service and good food! Clean bathroom. Nice stop on our way Tucson. Even met a sweet Rat Terrier, we love our puppies!

Hole in the wall place with attitude. Staff all wears tees saying, "Eat, pay, and get out." Actually, nice down to earth people. Really good food-- way too much food! Only downside, I finally had to ask for our check. Chuck full of locals who know a good thing when they see it.

12/3/14 I checked Tripadvisor before going over to El Centro. When we got there all I saw was cars. I told the wife this must be a good place. Far once I was right.

Occasionally, my wife and I go to Juniors for a late lunch. The real nice thing about the restaurant is, the waitress always remembers what you had to drink last time that you had a meal there. The special of the day is always good. It is kind of hard to find a restaurant that serves a good old fashioned... More

Don't let the outside of this eatery fool you, it is a real gem. Carlos the owner makes all of the food fresh, no pre made foodservice type food here. The fries are freshly cut and fried to a delicious crisp. The roast beef was delicious, rare in the middle on really nice white bread. It's a very busy place... More

The food is homemade, service is fast and efficient, and the prices can't be beat for the amount of food you get. Catering goes by a different menu, and he has so many choices at reasonable prices. They always do their best to serve the customer.
