“Very good Mexican Food”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This restaurant is quaint. We enjoy eating in as well as their take out service. The food is freshly prepared. Service is excellent. It is a BYOB so bring along your favorite beer, wine or Margaritas! They do have a selection of Mexican soda. Parking can be a challenge. I've parked in the neighboring Taco Bell when the place is crowded. The only downside of the place is that it's always cold. Bring a sweater or jacket!

“Excellent and close to home!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

We frequently visit Juanitos, have never had a bad experience and the food is always fantastic!
A few favorites are the tortilla soup, juanitos burrito loco, and the jalapeno poppers!

“Food made for the palate of a 10 year old”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Where do I begin? The condition of the dining room was in appealing with torn, outdated furniture. When we looked at the menu, we thought, ok- if the food is bad, we can always enjoy a margarita or sangria. Guess what? No liquor license and bad food. The regulars bring in their own jumbo coolers stuffed with beer...not a pretty sight if you're someone who wants something that's anything close to a classy experience when they dine out. Better off going to the Taco Bell next door.

“Pricey but Good”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We loveMexican food and are always eager to try a new place. We ventured away from our local place and were pleasantly surprised. Juanitos was packed but then again ir was Cinco de Mayo. We were seated immediately. Entrees are $17-24 which is a little pricey for Mexican. After a 45 minute wait the food arrived and it was worth the wait at least for me. I had a burrito chimichanga combo with me sauce on one and a creamy sauce on the orher and it was delicious.she had steak fajitas which came already made- no sizzling steak and warmed tortillas. However, she was happy.
Juanitos is a big place with two good sized rooms and is BYOB. The decor is simple: colorful walls, tiled floors and black accents. It is comfortable. We will be back.

“Great Mexican Food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Juanito's II is a great find for someone looking for delicious authentic Mexican food. The atmosphere is great and so is the service. Their guacamole which is prepared at your table is incredible.
