We've been coming here for the last 10 years when in town for trade days. It's now named Juanita's Fish Basket & Mexican Grill. I don't know if there is new ownership, but feel the quality of food is not as good as in the past. We may be finding a different restaurant next year.

The last time we ate here the waitress forgot about us and forgot to put our order in. When we did get out food is was cold and had no taste. My beans were burned. I will not try it again.

My family of four was passing through Canton and decided to eat here. We saw the Juanita's sign and assumed we were going to a Mexican Restaurant. Turns out it is Mexican food and a seafood restaurant. I will say this was one of the best tacos I have ever had. The rest of the meal was just average. My... More

As of 6-20-2015, this place is no longer called Juanitas. There is a "Fish and Mexican Grill" sign up, but I bed it's the same people. It was not good when it was Juanitas and I have heard absolutely nothing--good or bad--about it since the name change. I'm not going.

Ate there last night. Had the fajitas. They were very good. Home made tortillas. Portions were actually huge, no one at our table could finish everything. I done see why this place had bad reviews unless they either had a bad day or we just got there on a good one. I would eat here again.

I went there to eat lunch with my family yesterday and the food was terrible. The presentation was bad (greasy food) and the flavor ever worse. It was my first and last time there.

I don't even know where to start. Arrived at 12:39 left at 2:10 after only 2 people out of 6 were able to eat their meal. Puffy tacos were refrigerator cold, chile rellenos were not battered in egg white and were filled with a tube of hot solidified cheese and chicken flautas while edible were very greasy. Also greasy were... More

Ate there today while heading to Trades Days bc I didn't want to eat junk food. The salsa was fine but the food wasn't too great. We had fajita nachos and the plate was full of grease and meat was under seasoned. I could've made way better food at home. I felt I could've rated food inside trades days that... More

My friends and I ate there. We should have walked out upon the initial inspection. It was super dirty and smelled horrible. The food was not good. In fact, we all felt bad the next day. While we were still eating, the wait staff started sweeping the food covered carpet all around our table. Yes I said carpet. Blech. Will... More
