We visited La Juanita based on others' reviews. It was a fun place to eat - made us feel like a local. I'm not sure what is up with the spiced carrots - they must be a local favorite - but not many of us liked them. Overall, good atmosphere and large portions.

I'm not sure what the big deal is about this place. I have eaten there 3 or 4 times and each time was mediocre. The first time was awful. I had fish tacos and got sick. The meat is the same as any other mom and pop mexian place. No frills is right. 5 out of 10 I would say

Who ever you are that mentioned La Juas is Tex Mex. You need to go back to Texas and stay there. I've been eating @ La Juas since I was 11 years old. Before they were famous . You cant get anymore authentic. 17 years later and they still have the best AUTHENTIC tacos on the planet. Hands down

La Juanita's is one of our absolute favorite places to eat. The food is delicious and reasonably priced and the place is locally owned. Most of the menu is Mexican and that is what I'd recommend getting, but they also have chicken strips for kids, plus burgers that are surprisingly tasty, so no need to choose somewhere else if there's...

We love La Juanita and stopped for a late supper on a Friday night. A local high school's football game had just ended and it seemed as if everyone headed to La Juas afterward. The line was clear outside the back door and into the parking lot but things moved quickly. I grabbed a booth while my boyfriend stood in... More

World famous burritos & many other mexican items. Great tacos with choice of many different meats. Add a slice of avocado for a real treat. Not a fancy resturant but clean & quick.

Three people on the street told us "you will not be disappointed". They were spot on! High paced food service with delicious results. The Mexican food was delish, hot sauce at the perfect can't stop dipping tempo. The kids in the booth behind me were munching excellent looking burgers too. Buns grilled on the flat top, yummm0. Total highlight for... More

My teenaged daughter and her friends go here every chance they get! (And when she doesn't mind being seen with her mother and father, we go too! ;) The burritos are awesome, as are the fish tacos, and honestly, the three of us can get really full for under $20 - with drinks! Added bonus: everything comes with pickled carrots... More

We go here when we are looking for tasty authentic Mexican food, rather than stopping at a fast food place like Taco Bell. It is not a nice sit down restaurant for a date night but offers quick counter service and simple booths. Food is always good and the prices are reasonable. The place is almost always busy, which is... More

This place has awesome reviews everyone has gone here at least once. If you go you have to try their burritos it was voted top ten of Americas best burritos or something like that a few weeks ago. Been going here for years.
