Went for a late lunch with my husband. Was overall a little disappointed - a bit with food but mainly the overall atmosphere. We ordered a sope, carne asada taco, and 'milanesa' plate (fried breaded beef with rice and beans). Pros: -there was a good amount of meat on the taco and it was flavored well -breading was good on... More

Great food. Only complaint is that the line is too long. They are famous for their burritos, but everything is good. Be sure to try the spicy carrots.

Yeah, it's not shiny or fancy, but the food is delicious, the servings are generous and the prices are good. The most impressive thing is all of the combination options, including authentic specialties such as tripe and tongue.

The good is very good. The burrito is ranked nationally as one of the top 10 burrito's in the county. I like the mild Mexican taco. They have great spicy/origanal too. The only draw back is the line to order sometimes. Just further proof the good is worth waiting for.

Great little taco stand in a tucked away area. This place is always busy with diverse clientele. I've tried several of their meals which are ok but I think the best bet here are the tacos. Choose your meat and have a few!

Fresh, made-to-order, authentic Mexican food. Carrots and french fries, (yes...fries), are to die for.

It's simple, If you like Mexican -You'll Love La Juanita"s - Not just good but great. The folks are nice and kid around a bit - the atmosphere is typical with the smells that come with the food. You'll like the place but the food is the reason to visit.
