It's been a few years since I've been to Juanito's Taqueria. My wife and I loved it the couple of times we ate here. But for us it was out of the way when we drove down the freeway between Bremerton and Silverdale. What fools...we were. Well today, unfortunately, my wife stayed home while our son and I went to SEEfilm (highly recommend IT Chapter Two by the way) and did our customary go out to eat after the movie thing. My son has been extolling the virtues of their California Burrito (with fries added to the meat, rice and beans) and the half/steak (carne asada)/half cabeza burrito that I decided this was the day I make my return. Boy, am I ever glad I did. First, the staff is as nice as can be--and more on that later. I ordered the daily special 3 cabeza street tacos with rice and beans.. To sum the flavors up in one word: wow. The meat was tender and richly, deeply flavored. It was easy to tell it's been slow cooked for hours. It's been years since I tasted any Mexican entree that wonderful. The refried beans (sprinkled with some grated cotija cheese) and rice were almost the meat's equal in the flavor department, which means they tasted exactly the I love Mexican rice and beans to taste. My son ordered his favorite half steak/half cabeza burrito and kindly allowed me to have a bite. Totally amazing flavors. And what impressed me was how filled with meat the burrito was. It was almost wall-to-wall meat with some beans and rice, which is the exact opposite from how burritos are served in most other Mexican food places. Since I'm a kind, loving and thoughtful husband, ordered the pork torta with rice and beans to-go per my beloved wife's request. Halfway through devouring my food I asked a very nice staff lady (who had taken our order) if the to-go order was ready. She said they were waiting until we were halfway through with our meal to bring it out so it wouldn't sit on the table getting cold. What amazing customer service. i can personally attest that not only did my wife LOVE the pork torta and rice and beans, but her food was STILL WARM! Oh yeah the three of us will be coming back here very soon. Next time I'm ordering the Carne Asada Chips as an appetizer. From now on this place is definitely ON the way. The people who have been caring on with this business are making the founders proud. Juanito's Taqueria is a very special place. No wonder so many of their customers are loyal fans.More

Somewhere between Mexican taquerias and street vendors is exactly what this little place reminds me of. It's only a few miles down the road from us, so it's so easy to stop by anytime. There are a limited number of tables and a couple of...picnic tables out front. The food is authentic, reasonably priced and delicious. My wife and I ordered the daily special of three chicken street tacos with rice and beans and added three of the best pork sopes I've ever had and a guava soda...all for about $16.00. Yum!!! Service was fast and friendly. I only wish the local police would find the murderers of the family who owned and operated this restaurant years ago now! It breaks my heart that those detestable criminals still haven't been found thus providing closure for the family. At the same time, I'm proud of the job that's being done to continue what John & Christale started.More

This is a great little taqueria in what appears to be an old gas station. It is very simple with a few tables inside and a few on the patio out front. We tried one of each kind of taco (beef, pork, chicken) and they...were all very good...very much like you would get in Mexico.More

I have driven by for years and this week decided to stop by and try the food here. I ordered steak street tacos, a chicken burrito and taquitos. My family shared each of the items. The food was delicious. The street tacos were the best...I have ever had. We will definitely be going back.More

We have put this into rotation! As in every Tuesday. We get take out. The closest thing to real Burritos and street tacos in the area! I would compare them to Alberto’s in San Diego. The most amazing carne asada in the entire state of...Washington.More

Another place that we pass several days a week and it has taken us years to stop. Glad that we finally did. Maybe it was the loads of cars that are always in front of their place. The menu is small and simple. Order from...one window and your food is brought out from a door on the other side of the room. There are tables inside and two picnic tables outside. We had our food to go, and it came nicely wrapped up in a paper sack. My meat burrito was loaded with chunks of beef, sour cream and great seasoning. My wife's dinner was equally good. We were very happy that we finally "discovered" Juanito's and will be stopping again.More
