We have eaten here about a dozen times. We have always had a good meal, but have really fell in love with their carnitas. It is tasty, tender, and not too salty (as we've found in other restaurants). I particularly like their tacos with the carnitas "California Style". It is a small casual place, the staff is friendly, and the food is good.

Repeating what others have already said: we came here based on Trip Advisor reviews, the ordinary exterior is deceiving, it is a smaller venue with good food, and the prices are quite reasonable.
Our personal experience: we entered later in the day and some of the pre-prepped food like the tamales were already sold out. The staff was helpful and the service was quick. Our food ranged from enchiladas, quesadillas, beef fajitas, and children's chicken tenders to tortilla soup. Each dish was well prepared.
The only thing that kept Tacos Juanita from getting a higher rating was that the beef in the fajitas was a bit tough and the chips were not warm and fresh. This sounds picky, but to me that is the difference between 4 and 5 stars. Patrons might also want to know that they do close earlier than many places for dinner so be sure to check their times before you go.
I would not hesitate to eat here again.

Learned of this restaurant from Trip Advisor and some golfers we ran into on the course in Eau Claire. Location is in an aged, semi-vacant strip mall - not impressive on the outside, but the food was out of this world. I had the #2 combination platter with two enchiladas on flour shells (one grilled chicken, one ground beef) with red enchilada sauce that was so tasty and had a nice little bite to it, refried beans, rice, endless chips and fresh-made-daily salsa with lots of onions and cilantro, and a margarita on the rocks. Nice little family-owned/-run business with great service. We went for lunch and enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned the very next day for lunch again. Highly, highly recommend this restaurant - we told the staff that we wished we had a restaurant like this in Minneapolis. Definitely check it out when in Eau Claire.

We frequent Tacos Juanita at least once every few months, and have always been pleased with our experience. The atmosphere is cozy, with old booths splattered against the walls, and a smaller selection of regular tables and chairs. We have never had to wait for a table, yet, we've never been the only table. This is always reassuring, as our visits spread from 11am for brunch to 8pm dinners. I would recommend reading the daily specials behind the register counter before taking your seat, as the specials are not advertised once you sit down. Our personal favorite is the taco sampler, where you can select up to five different types of fillings as well as the way they are prepared (Mexican/Californian).

My husband and I came here for lunch and the food was amazing. We loved everything we ate and the service was superb. This is a smaller restaurant off the beaten path. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area :)
