Large portions, fast service, tasty food. Very beach bum friendly. Fish tacos are YUMMY! Will add to our must eat at places when we visit Encinitas.

“Great tacos & enchiladas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Nondescript little storefront in Encinitas turning out authentic Mexican cuisine at very inexpensive prices. Flavorful, full, handmade, fresh, food with a house-made salsa that tops off a great meal. I love finding hole-in-the-wall places and this is a great value. Don't judge this establishment by the outside appearances, but by the great food. There is a limited seating, but the take-out is divine too.

“A Local Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

When we moved to Leucadia 15 years ago we immediately discovered Juanita's. Here you will find bankers in line with surfers awaiting some of the most authentic "Mexico taco stand" food in North County. Our daughters, when coming home from college in Milwaukee or Denver, would make Juanita's their first stop on the way home.

“Recommended by relative in Del Mar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

My family in Del Mar loves this place. Drove there, not much to look at but an excellent menu, with large portions, but large and so very tasty. Since I was buying take out I orered a variety of items: Carnitas Burritos; Chile Relleno Burritos; Carnitas Tacos; Chicken Tacos. All (we shared) items were delicious. And with a large number items, I was suprised how inexpensive the entire order was for such wonderful food.
