I travel from El Paso to Ruidoso every weekend and I truly love breakfast. I’ve had a fever… and the only cure has been huevos rancheros. I’ve eaten from a few restaurants throughout El Paso and in Ruidoso and I have had my variations to...include hash browns, rice and sometimes a salad or lettuce dressing/aray. I generally order over easy eggs with corn tortillas if given the option. I have since started adding Carlsbad to my weekend travels and while in town, am now starting to explore the city and found Junior's Restaurant to be open. In fact, the open at 4 am in the morning, which is understandable considering the get ‘heavy’ traffic from the highway going in and out of town just east of the Pecos River. I order my ‘usual’ and was pleased with the plate that I got two eggs fried over easy with plenty of yoke atop corn tortillas, rice and beans and a salad garnish which was extremely delicious in my opinion. As I had lunch, it was very easy to see and even upon entering the restaurant for seating, it appeared to be a full lobby; standing room only. This make up most the ‘to go’ crowd ordering burritos to go. And Wow! What a selection or variety of burritos the offered. I saw picadillo, relleno, egg and sausage, lengua, egg and bacon and several others. It was easy to see that they were doing good business and I ordered a relleno and egg and sausage to go for family waiting back when I checked out all to the tune of just under twenty/20 USD. I would definitely go back to Junior's Restaurant for a sitdown meal or if I needed a couple of good burritos to go; they got you covered.More
At $10+ a plate and small, poorly flavored portions, this might be consider “cheap” if it was buried in a tourist attraction and you had to eat there. French fries that came with the Mexican hamburger were cold, enchiladas were tiny ($6 for one on...the kids menu that wasn’t enough for my 4 year old!), and my husband, who usually enjoys Mexican food, found his plate bland and unsatisfying. It was drastically overpriced for the food we got.
The restaurant reminded me of a gas station; it was very warm and loud because of the many fans they had blowing. The waitress was quick and cheerful at least.More
Decided to get take out, family wanted Mexican we were pleased to select Juniors, we ordered there to go. Everything we got was good, I especially liked the chili relleno portion of my plate which also had an enchilada and a super big burrito, I...could not finish the plate. The steak tacos were very good. The service was very good and efficient. The place seemed to be clean but a little cluttered. It is off the main street but worth looking for it.More
Mostly Hispanic people in the place as we ate. My husband had a Chili Relleno Plate and he wasn’t too impressed by them. I had a combo plate that had a Burrito on it and that was by far the best deal, although the meat...was very salty. The cheese enchilada was very forgettable. The chips and salsa were very tasty. Spicy salsa- yum!More
Read the GREAT REVIEWS and headed there for dinner. We ordered the Taco Salad & Beef Enchiladas. Huge Portions! Both meals were excellent. They also present Chips & Salsa. Chips were fresh & crisp. Cost was about $10.00/meal. Total for two people with drinks +...tax, $25.00. If you are looking for real Mexican dishes prepared & served by Hispanic staff, this is the place.More
