Juanita’s Mexican Food-Updated Review

Juanita’s Mexican Food
1735 Indian Hill Blvd
Pomona, CA 91767

Juanita’s is a Pomona institution, having been in business since 1976.  This location replaced an old  Tastee Freez, which opened around 1956.  Thanks to David Allen for the history of the location!

Juanita's isn't authentic Mexican food, but it's been around and loved forever.  Besides their food, Juanita's was known for the old menu board that listed all possible combinations of filling for their burritos.  Now they have a much more streamlined menu board.

Beans, rice, and cheese, burrito, $3.81 with tax.  The burrito was huge and worth the price.  But, the burrito was very bland.  No flavor and just boring.  Even their hot sauce didn't add much flavor.  The freshly made tortilla was the best part of the burrito!

Service was great!  There was a couple who ordered before me, that I later learned were regular customers.  I was treated just as well as they were, me a first time customer!  I hate giving bad reviews on the food, when the service and people are so nice.  But, the food just didn't do it for me.  But, the service was top notch!

I will go back to Juanita's to try their veggie and potato tacos, but I'll pass on the burrito!

Update July 21, 2017

So, I went back to Juanita's to try the veggie taco and potato taco! 

 Veggie Taco, $2.10, with beans, rice, onions, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and cilantro.  This was very good, a bit surprising because everything in the taco was in the burrito.  But, this taco had better flavor and I would order it again.  A bit heavy on the cilantro, but other wise very good.

Potato taco, $2.10, fried taco with potato, lettuce, and cheese.  This had a very thin coat of potato and then stuffed with lettuce and cheese.  It was ok, but the veggie burrito was much better!

Service again was very good. 

If you're a vegetarian, the veggie taco is the way to go at Juanita's.
