A dining patron from Carlsbad, CA tried Juanita's Taco Shop, liked it, and rated it . They liked the food, liked the service, and liked the ambiance.

Pros
OUtstanding burritos, enchildas, tacos. I drive all the way from Fallbrook to dine at Juanita's at least once a month. I've been going there for over 25 years. You won't be disappointed. My only complaint is there is no Juanita's in Fallbrook.
Cons
I have no complaints. None whatasoever.
Comments
Get there early or else you'll be waiting in line. A line that sometimes goes out the door and down the block. You've been warned.

Been coming here for almost three decades, never disappointed. Dollar for dollar, great food, great value and compared to the hundred or so similar type Mexican food establishments in SD County, they're among the top, and I've gone half or so in the 50 ye

Really PARKING is my biggest con. And that's not gonna change no fault to Juanitas. Long lines at times, customers not knowing what they want (like tacos, burritos, etc have never been seen before at a Mexican restaurant)
