“My All-Time Fave!!!”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

Janitzio is my favorite Mexican restaurant of all time! I am a regular. Their hot sauce is addicting. My favorite items are the chicken poblano and the chicken chipotle. It is run by a mother who cooks and her daughters who wait on the tables. This is very close to where I work so I go there often for lunch - sometimes with friends but more often by myself. You will not be disappointed.

“Best Mexican food I've ever had”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

It's not flashy, it doesn't appear on many searches, and they don't have a website. But that all just means they can spend their time making really good Mexican food. My wife and I agree that it is the best Mexican food we have ever had -from the Old City in San Diego to Southern Texas as well as the Pacific Northwest. And it sure beats anything in The Great White North!
