very convenient location, favorite carnitas, best mexican restuarant, friendly server, fresh cilantro, good sampling, not tasty food
food are not tasty. The smell of the Pine Sol is too strong. The meat for the tortas is chewy. I tried to give another chance, I ordered taquitos and they are not tasty. I tried the chile rellenos.... Overloaded of eggs and no enough chile. The presentation is not attractive. I hope this restaurant improve somehow because it has a very convenient location.
Don't miss Juanita's on Eagle Rock Blvd. Tucked away on non-descript Eagle Rock Blvd, Juanita's has great, fresh, reasonably priced Mexican food. Though the decor is nothing to write home about, the portions are generous, carefully and freshly prepared. I ordered Steak Picado (around $9); it was 3 thinly sliced steak pieces tender and flavorful. The steak was served also with a wonderfully prepared rice, side of a mixture of fresh cilantro, diced tomatoes and onions. pinto beans, and lettuce/tomato salad, Yummy... They just have a few tables and during my visit I only saw only a cook and a friendly server; so you might wait for a few more minutes for your food but you'll be happy you came.
BEST MEXICAN RESTUARANT IN LOS ANGELES. I have been to Juanita's 3 times recently, have ordered different dishes with the intent of punching holes into my first positiive experience, and found the food there to be the best in the west. The tables are mis-matched, and the napkins are paper towels. However, the only real downside is its location. For many with a proclivity to the upbeat "westside" culture it's a turn off. My only comment to them is to try it if you get the chance; the experience is well worth it. Worst case, at least you'll have a frame of reference for other Mexican restaurants. One more thing: get the red and green sauce when served the chips; the red one is different and hotter than the green one, and exposes you to more than a good sampling of what to expect when you get what you ordered.
Que Tortas Tan BUENAS. Try ANY torta @ Juanita's U wont b dissapointed. My favorite is the carnitas!
