When I first walked into this place, it was packed and I was inclined to just turn around and leave. It wasn't the cleanest of places, and it had that hole in the wall vibe to it. But we sat down, ordered our meals and I was pleasantly surprised. I made a joke when ordered something to the effect of... More

Quesadillas were fantastic. Huge, full of flavor. Super chicken burrito was delicious and hit the spot. Margaritas were fantastic, got me a touch drunk. Strongly recommend the place.

Average but I've had better burritos. Lots of locals there. The food was not worth taking home leftovers. We went for lunch

My companion said that Juan's was the best burrito she'd ever eaten and she's half Cuban. Delicious.

Upon tasting the Flying Burrito, my mind suddenly came to comprehend string theory and quantum mechanics in a way no human ever has, for I truly fell into 11 dimensions of flavor. I succumbed to a trance state beyond time, where I lived the totality of all possible lives in a flurry of parallel worlds. Eons passed, stars died and... More

Tried Juan's tacos and was very pleased. Soft tacos with shrimp and veggies. Chips and queso was satisfying before meal. Good Neighborhood atmosphere. Pricing was fair. Help was pleasant. Overall a good experience.

Service was ok and atmosphere was fun but a little cramped feeling. The margaritas were just so so. The food was great and the hot sauces and salsas were top notch. I would definitely go back again, but it's not like I am craving it and wishing they had one in TX.

Great spot, large portions, excellent service! We sat at the bar for lunch to get seated more quickly. I sometimes find food service at the bar is not the best - but not the case at Juan's. The bartender entertained us some during lunch too, which was fun.
