I love guacamole but more often than not raw onions is part of the mix so I have to pass but recently my son brought home a taquitos plate and the order came with 4 taquitos/guacamole plus beans and rice...all for under $5. What a deal...reminiscent of abuelita's cooking!

Last time I ate at J&S I had a chorizo burrito. It was so greasy I had grease running down my hands. I don't need that kind of stuff in my diet. I haven't been back since.

I love this place because of their delicious burritos and taquitos. My favorites are the red chile, bean and cheese burrito and the Green Chile, bean and cheese burrito. We visit this place at least once a week to give me a break from cooking. It's not a fancy place, but the food is really good. The locations is easy... More

Eat there often. Consistent good quality Open 24/7 Only drawback - no carne asada and service can be slow if there is a long line

I was craving some good mex takeout. I had not been to Jand S for a while but remembered it as always good and reasonable prices. I got a bean and cheese and chile relleno burrito also taquiitos. They must have changed owners or something because the prices were way higher and the food way down. Very little cheese in... More

I needed a good quick bite and decided to try J&S. You can not go wrong. The burger was huge and tasty. I also had the taco, while not as good it was still good. I could have used a little more meat but the shell was very good along with the sauce. If you're hungry stop on by.

Decided to try out this place as there was always a queue outside when we drove past during our stay at the Hilton. We ate pastrami sandwich, special shredded beef quesadillas and chilli fries. It was delicious. Not sure what the other reviewers are talking about. Yeah it's cash only and no toilets but its not trying to be a... More

Another place no tourist would visit on purpose. However they are open all night and I do enjoy their breakfast burritos on occasion. Tried other items and quality is average to below average. Definitely would stay away from any non-Mexican items. You eat outside. No bathrooms. Cash only. You get the picture.

We went after a high school football game. It wasn't busy. It took a long time to get our food. The food was ok. Greasy and nothing stood out to entice me to go back. Haven't returned since
