My wife and I have been to Juanitos several times. It's good cheap Mex food. Styrofoam plates, plastic forks sort of place. But tasty. BUT last time we were there it was obvious that they had lost their health department certification. We'll try again though. If they have their license, we'll stay with them. But if they still don't have... More

I had the Menudo twice because Yelp said they were the best in town. By the way, I do pride myself as a menudo expert having had that all over the US. First time I had it "for here" and it was not hot enough. The second time I had it to go so I can take it back and... More

Our local host insisted we eat here in between meals (!) -- only had room for some shared ceviche (excellent) and carne asada tacos; she had a HUGE torta that would have fed two of us. Counter service. Nothin' fancy, but the locals obviously know a good thing when they see it.

We felt like tacos for lunch so I googled and found this little spot. Filled with locals, and felt like it was a family run operation. Not fancy decor, but really good food. Pork al pastor provided crispy pork pieces, corn tortillas, avocado, and shredded lettuce. Simple, unpretentious, but very good. Husband says it was the best meal we had... More

Was pretty excited, the place was buzzing, parking lot full. Ordered, carnitas, looked good but lacked flavor, the tortilla smelled awesome but were tough to eat. Probably won't visit again.

The restaurant is unassuming and appears to be a favorite for locals. The fact that it was fairly busy for the time of night that we visited was a good sign. If you are looking for fancy, this is not the place. If you want an enjoyable meal in close proximity to the hotels in the area at a reasonable... More

Stopped by last night after a full day hiking through Saguaro Nat Park and ordered two beef tacos and a burrito. I chatted with the big friendly guy behind the counter, Geraldo, and told him that I was visiting from Canada and had really wanted to try the cabeza (beef head) taco but chickened out. Geraldo was kind enough to... More

Food was ok. I had expected more. I got a taco menu with head meat from beef. Made my own little tacos. Beans were great, as was the rice. The rest was just ok. I also ordered a quesadilla with cheese that was really good.

Juanitos is a brightly decorated, and painted, Mexican food restaurant on Grant Road near I10. I've been eating there since the early 1990's. One day I even left my wallet at home and the owner said, "That's ok. Pay the next time". The food is simple and excellent. I usually order a bean and cheese burrito with cilantro and avocado....
