I lived in Southern California for 20 years & I finally found an authentic Mexican restaurant that's just like my California home..freshly made & unbelievably fast & delicious..you can't make this at home as great priced as they are

I love Juanita's! Great traditional Mexican food, in "fast food". Good for dine in or to go! Must have cash.

Lucky for us the Holiday Inn manager told us about this place! Staff was enthusiastic and very friendly, menu was huge, and the food was outstanding. Cash only, so come prepared, but it's worth stopping at the ATM!

It is a place that offers "fast food" with Mexican food. You can find tongue tacos . The service is fast. They only accept cash , no checks or credit cards.

This was recommended by friends and we thank them very much. Excellent food, very reasonable prices, and apparently a popular spot, as the line was out the door most of the time that we were there.

I like this restaurant. It is small and not a place you would go for the ambience. But the food is very good. I really like the burritos. And the carrot sticks are unlike anything I have ever had. It isn't expensive. But when you have a combination of a small place, great prices and good food; just know that... More

So good. I know...I just order 3 tacos every time, but they're the best in the city. My friend always orders a burrito with avocado.

La Juanita's is a interesting place that is somewhat difficult to describe. There are no waiters or waitresses. You place your order, pay for your food and pickup a few minutes later and seat yourself. What makes it such a curiosity is the "process". A crew of employees is at their station in the kitchen preparing food from scratch. Kind... More
