Our entire family loves going to this restaurant. We get together as a family 20+ of us to celebrate birthdays and this place is a recurring visit because the family loves it teens and adults.

I'll start with the great. Chips and salsa were a good start and our entrees were delicious and I couldn't even finish mine. It's hard to find good tamales in NJ and they made a great chicken tamal and steak enchilada. My husband loved his chicken burrito and steak enchilada. The steak in the enchiladas was so good. Highly recommend... More

Typical Mexican menu of very good tasty food. Portions are large and service is good. They are very accommodating to special requests. The fajitas are especially good. Guacamole is made fresh at your table, if you ask. Free chip and dip when you sit down. They have a children's menu for picky eaters.

The fajitas /steak and chicken are dry, and it's very expensive. The vegetable burritos are delicious and rather large, two people can share one. The chicken tortilla soup is great.

We have lived in Howell for years but never tried Juanitos. A few people have mentioned it so we went by. It's a nice atmosphere and a BYOB and very good authentic food. Service is basic...a long time to get it but the food was delivered as quickly as it should be and did taste good. We had chimichangas which... More

I know the title of my review says very good, but if I knew the spanish word for excellent I would have used it. We went fairly early on a busy Saturday night, and got one of the last tables without a wait. What we loved: virgin strawberry margaritas ( we added a little of the tequila we brought). super...

This restaurant is homey and old school. The service is polite and attentive. The menu is quite large. The standout was the Guacamole made table side. Fresh delicious, and addictive. I will keep going good back until I find my favorite main dish, and I will post an update.

Being a Southern California transplant I'm usually a bit fussy about my Mexican food though after being on the east coast for 25 years, a bit less so. Juanito's II scratches the itch for mexican food with good substantial meals, nice beans and rice, good salsa and an awesome spicy sauce poured over the top of your burrito. Yummy. Casual... More

Good food, good service, a comfortable place to hang out and consistency are what keeps your customers coming back. Well, I've been a loyal Juanito's customer for years and my loyalty is hard to shake, but it's shaken and I wont be back. All of those things have been slipping over the years and it's no longer a pleasure to... More
