“Huge portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

Went here for lunch today and I couldn't believe the size of the portions. I ordered a burrito and my friend had two taco's and they both were excellent. All the ingredients were fresh and the salsa was definitely homemade. Looking forward to eating here again and again!

“Great place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

It's neither a "Mexican" not "Tex-Mex" restaurant if you're a purest, but then why be one? John's dishes up enticing SW inspired burritos, tacos, etc. with good quality ingredients in more than adequate portions. (i.e. the small burrito is NOT small). Only place I know in town to get a tofu taco if you're not prone to meat - and it will be pretty darn good. Food seems to run fairly spicy (hot) in seasoning).

John's is a small (almost tiny) hole-in-the wall restaurant in the up-coming SW neighborhood of Rochester. The decor is sort of funky but nice & not by anyone's standards fancy. Great place to kick back and have a couple of tacos and a beer.

Staff is pleasant and helpful.

Prices are more than fair!

I use to visit the south wedge many time because of local restaurant like this. Awesome food and cozy dining area.

“One of the best brunches in all of Rochester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

So delicious! So nutritious! It's small so get there early, but the ambience is pretty good for a brunch place. And the food and prices are amazing. The service is great. The people are friendly and welcoming and helpful.
