“Everything Is Always Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

We have not been here since early March, and noticed the menu changed. A new appetizer, Camaron Chimichangas, was impressive and enough for two to share. Fajitas still wonderful. I was very happy with my Shrimp Enchiladas with a creamy chipotle sauce and delicious rice. We added a Crabcake to share ($6) and it was great... now we know another entree possibility for future visits.

Be sure to bring a good wine. We enjoyed an $18 Malbec which stood up well to the fresh and bold flavors of the evening.

Our server always remembers us and takes care of us as if we were her brothers.

Pottstown is fortunate to have this restaurant!

“Great Mexican/Latin Cuisine in Pottstown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

We've passed by Juan Carlos many times, and finally decided to make reservations for dinner. WHY DID WE WAIT SO LONG????

First, the interior of the restaurant is very nice ... classy, great decorations. Tables are spaced apart and you don't feel like you're sitting on top of the folks next to you.

The food ... where to start. We had guacomole as a starter, and it was delicious. For main courses, my wife had the chimichanga and I had the cuban chicken. Both were wonderful. The chicken in the chimichanga was smoky, nicely seasoned, very fresh. The cuban chicken was a wonderful surprise - the chicken is a lightly fried chicken thigh with skin, crispy, and seasoned to perfection. On top, a sweet sauce pulled all of the flavors together. Just superb.

A few important notes - the restaurant is BYOB and they are cash/check only.

We highly recommend, and we will definitely be going again soon and bringing friends.

“Great date restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

I was lucky enough to share my first experience with a sweet guy. We both had no idea what it would be like, but the reviews on here did not lie. It was absolutely great! It is a hidden little gem in Pottstown. I had the seafood enchilida and it was delicious.
It was not overly crowded so we had time to sit and linger. I had a fabulous time and would definitely go back.

“Nice atmosphere, great service, below average food!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Tonight we did a post Valentines dinner with friends. Have noticed new restaurant on High street, but never ventured in. Checked out Internet via google, read reviews, checked out menu, price etc. no reservation needed early ie. . 5:00pm-6:30pm for us. Only 6 other people there. Service was outstanding, no alcohol served, BYOB. They provide glasses for your beer, and sell mixes etc for margarita, monitors for $2.75 each IF u bring tequila, $ 10 for pitcher margaritas and mojito mix. U provide rum. Otherwise soft drinks or ice test. Appetizers were $8-14. We had Garlic shrimp. It was good, $14 for 9 good sized shrimp. Calamari was $14 appetizer we turned into meal. Looked all the same ie not freshly breaded, frozen Mrs Paul's looking stuff. Did not enjoy at all! Mediocre at best. We had chicken chimichangas,, which were tasty......very small compared to Mex food out West. Bread served with Meal was good for smoking up garlic. Salsa and chips were always re supplied and good. Skipped on dessert. Bill for 3 with one appetizer and 3 soft drinks..$78, Extremely high $$$ for the quality. CASH ONLY! Only open for dinner, after 5pm,,, closed Sundays and Mondays!z

Wouldn't go back!!!, very expensive for mediocre quality. Go to Los Aztecas near Walmart. Better quality,better food. Enjoy!
