“cafe american”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

can't beat the value for the quality of the food. Fast, hot service, waitress knew the repeat customer drink order and had it out to the table in seconds. Best french dip sandwich ever.

“Lunch at JR'r”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Junior's is a little Diner off of 4th Street in El Centro. Only open for Breakfast and Lunch. Has a daily Special. The food is always excellent. Service is friendly and FAST !. If in the Imperial Valley, this is a must try place.

“A Real Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012

Food is fresh, good quality and served in a fast, friendly atmosphere.
I recently had Junior cater a Thanksgiving Dinner for 70. Food was great,
hot, arrived and served on time. No small task to do and to have
70 happy people.

“Awesome local filling station”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

"Eat, Pay and Get Out" is the motto and perfectly sums up the attitude at Junior's. The wait staff are short and to the point and don't tolerate wishy-washy diners. That being said the service is spot- on and everyone is treated like a regular. After a few visits they'll remember how you take your coffee and if you want gravy on your biscuits. The portions are large and delicious and keep me full for a day of exploring the Colorado Desert environs. I've never been there for lunch but there is no better place for breakfast in El Centro. Junior's opens early and is closed on weekends.
