“Delicious Home Cooked Food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 30, 2011

Was recommended to Juniors by a local farmer and glad that he did. His recommendation was too understated. The place is clean, good service, food was plentiful, hot, well prepared, and reasonably priced. I now have something to look forward to for breakfast or lunch when I am in El Centro. Try the blueberry pancakes-best I have eaten since my Mother made them for me as a kid. You will never leave Juniors hungry and unsatisfied.
Recommended by an out-of-towner.

“Nothing to go crazy for.”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

The food is average nothing that ready stands out. The place can use more decor as it looks real plain. When you look at the prices and compare to the taste I felt like it could have had more to offer. Lastly, the times I have gone, the service was horrible and rude. I don't care where you come from. You should adapt to your surroundings. I could recomend much better places than this but there would be too many.

“Charming Southwest Desert City Atomsphere: Good Prices, Good Food!”
Reviewed June 26, 2010

If you have to go to El Centro, your'll be pleasantly surprised if you eat at Junior's for lunch or breakfast. As a single woman traveler, I like places where I feel safe, comfortable and service is quick. The food is home-cooked style: what a relief from fast food chains! Also, the prices are reasonable.
