“Best new restaurant in Carlsbad!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Don't be fooled by the building! Junior's is very clean, very authentic New Mexican style food and an excellent family run business. Everything is freshly made to order. It is a slight wait. SLIGHT! But it is well worth it. The tamales and burritos are fresh daily and available at the register for a quick "grab and go". The Mexican shrimp cocktail that my companion ordered had 18 nice sized shrimp in it. The flautas are hand rolled with house-made fillings and fried to crispy perfection. As testimony to the quality of Junior's Mexican food, I rate their beans, rice and salsa among the top three offered in Carlsbad. The other two bean contenders are BBQ places, therefore Junior's is the winner of the bean wars among Mexican food in Carlsbad!

Don't miss Junior's! You'll be happy you went there!
