Description: At Juanita Greenberg’s Nacho Royale we make real Mexican-ish food prepared fresh and fast. Over a decade ago, we first opened Juanita Greenberg’s Burrito Palace on Wentworth Street in Historic Charleston and featured original style nachos, quesadillas, and big fat healthy burritos. Now we have 2 locations – Upper King in downtown Charleston and Coleman Boulevard right near Shem Creek in Mt. Pleasant.Juanita’s has also grown from just awesome Mexican food to a whole lot more. Seating inside and outside at both locations, margaritas that will make you want to jump right into the glass, TV’s all around (so yeah we have that sports-bar thing going on too) and a casual, groovy, retro-cool atmosphere that’ll make you want to stick around long after your food’s gone!So ANDELE ANDELE, ARIBA ARIBA! Get a group together and get to Juanita’s – the food’s cookin’ and the margaritas are waiting.We are dog friendly and smoking is allowed on the patio!

“The search continues for Great Mexican...and continues.”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

The search continues for good Mexican in Charleston that doesn't come from a restaurant on wheels. And the search continues. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with Juanita's, they're just adequate food that will not satisfy anyone from or who's lived in the Southwest. Service was very slow, despite almost no one in the restaurant. In fact, from our seats we could watch the cook slowly preparing the group ahead of us' food, and then slowly prepare ours. I like that they make it to order, but step it up a bit please.

The highlight of the meal was the trio of Guac, Salsa and Queso. They were all good, and the chips were decent for chips from a bag. 3.25
The Quesadilla was well stuffed and tasted decent. 3.0
The fish tacos were a big disappointment. When you can't even beat a fast food chain (Rubios) don't even bother. 2.25
The waitress was attentive and the beer selection okay. I'm not saying don't go here, but next time I'll go to Andolini's next door (same ownership - better result.)
