“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

Wow! We loved this place. It was clear when we walked in that this place is a favorite of the locals. It was clearly packed with local patrons. When we walked in, we were welcomed like long lost family.

The waitress sat us at the table of our choice and then patiently explained all the varied choices on the menu. I love the fact that they do not use lard in their beans.

The food was wonderful! Each of the four of us ordered something different. They even altered some of the choices slightly to meet our needs.

After enjoying the meal, we chatted a bit to Juanito, the owner (The Restaurant is now called Juanito's). He told us how he had come to own the place after starting there as a dish washer eighteen years ago. What a nice man.

We would STRONGLY recommend this place for local color and excellent food and service! And.. it was very reasonably priced.

The vegetarian enchiladas with green chile are the best I have ever eaten.
