My wife and I stopped here for dinner on our way to Galveston, mainly because of the name (my mother's name is Juanita). It's located in a strip center on a freeway frontage road practically underneath an overpass, and you have to be looking for it to see it. We were greeted promptly and taken to a corner booth. Chips... More

Eat very often at Mama Juanitas... Always at the round top table to far right when go in so can watch Sports from our table and not be viewing from the Bar...

The service was terrible . They weren't listening a brought wrong orders out. They wouldn't do meals and take out anything so my sister couldn't have just a chicken wrap. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE.

I was recommend to this place by the hotel staff where I was staying. So I figured I'd give it a try. Honestly the best Mexican food I have ever had !! I had the fajitas with beef, and it was out of this world delicious. I wanted to try other places while I was down here but honestly will... More

Well, I went there with my son for an early dinner. We ordered fajitas, and they weren't as good as I remembered. The meat was under-seasoned, and I had to get my hands all dirty taking the tails off the shrimp (which were delicious). Who ever thought you should serve shrimp with the tails on?? Anyway, when the meal came,... More

This is a family friendly place that quite simply serves up the very best grilled fish tacos (Mahi Mahi, red snapper, tilapia and a couple others) and the most delicious margaritas I have yet to find. Don't pass it up if you want a great meal and drinks to remember.

Have a Margarita and enjoy their great food! Great menu choices and lunch options. Chips and salsa (I like the green!) and never, ever leave hungry!

I worked close to this location and was craving for some Cajun and Mexican food. I came with a group of co-workers for lunch one day and I though I hit the jackpot! There is a crawfish enchilada dish that hit both spots. It was really good, very filling. Our waiter was friendly, and the place wasn't too packed for... More

Had a really good beef enchilada (2) dinner with rice and beans. Prices were very affordable and waiter was good. The chips and salsa were fresh and sweet tea was ok. Have eaten here quite a few times in the past and will continue to visit when in the area.

Decided to try MJ's for Sunday lunch. Restaurant was not very busy. Service was fast and efficient. Food was average. We ordered queso dip as an appetizer, fajitas, and enchiladas for meals. Food was typical Tex-Mex. with so many Mexican restaurants nearby, I will be trying another next time I'm in the area.
