“Good Mexican in Monmouth County”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This place has good Mexican food, better that most in NJ.
The Guacamole is great, made fresh to order at the table. The Mole Poblano is delicious.

“Impressed my husband”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I love this place, everything is fresh and taste greats. My husband is from Texas and said this is the first place he has eaten at that reminds him what he used to get at home. Its now the only place we go to for Mexican food. The atmosphere is comfortable and the staff is so friendly. Even the take out is just as good.

“Great Mole and Salsa Verde”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The ownership and staff are all from Mexico so the food is authentic. A terrific staff, who have all been there for a long time, will take good care of you and do their best to get you whatever you like. It is only one of three places in all of Monmouth County I would consider for Mexican food (and it's BYO).

“Fantastic guacomole”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We go to this restaurant every couple of months mainly because they prepare the guacomole so great. The enchiladas are terrific.

“A good stop”
Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I enjoy Juanito's. The food is well prepared and the ingredients are fresh. There is nothing terribly interesting on the menu, but what they do they do well. I wish they would add some more exotic/authentic menu items, but business seems good as it is. So why mess with success.
