We enjoyed excellent food here. I had the fish burrito, crunchy fried fish with plenty of filling. The service was fast and the food fresh. We were very happy that we ate here.

La Juanita's is the best and most authentic Mexican food in town. I love the Chicken Burrito's but I've heard the same thing said about the steak and pork burritos. Always really long lines, but worth the wait!
