    We asked to move tables because the one given was too big and spaced out for two people. The wait staff wouldn’t allow us to move because there were too “resv’d” up. However, the restaurant was empty and not many people showed up. The food and environment was good though.

    The food was just okay, and I felt that it was overpriced for what it was. The margaritas were great, but at 15 bucks a pop, were really small. Our server was very friendly and he made sure that we had what we needed. We were seated outside in the heat and there were no fans, coolers or misters. The table we were seated at was an old picnic table with attached benches. Juanita’s (and for sure their customers) would be better served with nice, colorful tables and comfortable chairs. If the restaurant is going to seat outside in the Texas heat, I feel that they should at least try to make it more comfortable and make it look welcoming and fun.

    The handmade alcoholic margaritas were diluted and lacked flavor profile of a made to order margarita. They were not worth the costs. The food was better than average and had good flavor profiles. The chimichurri was over powering the flavor of the beef.

    We went for a late lunch. Service was outstanding - Jason was extremely attentive. The food was excellent - we started with queso and beef. For entrees, we had chicken tacos and cheese enchiladas. Juanita’s is in a fun area. We plan to go back!

    Great service. Fast, efficient delivery with very kind staff. Restaurant has amazing ambient and perfect for dates. Food was very good. However, when sat at the table a used napkin was on one of the chairs. Not the best thing to look at and move when with your date for how much it costs.

    Mathew our server was awesome! He answered any questions I had, the food was good but it wasn't great. Food was definitely over priced for the quality, & size of the meal. And the alcoholic drinks were way over priced. One of my margaritas was 17$ which is ridiculous to me.

    The service was not good at all!! We had a waiter and trainee. We had to ask for our first drinks twice and then they never came back to get us refills. We had to ask for our bill and then it took like 20 min to get change and all. Not a good service experience.

    I booked a table for 5. When I got there they told me all they have available was outside patio in the rain! There was no patio options on the reservation and certainly not going to dine in the rain! The restaurant was extremely busy, but they were able to squeeze the 5 of us in a table for 4.

    My friend and I went after the Aggie football game. We both ordered cheese enchiladas, but I asked if could have one cheese and one beef. She said that was not an option, not even for an up charge? If they can’t be flexible they better start! Offer combination platters at the very least!

    Food was excellent. Restaurant clearly did not have enough servers to accommodate customers. Not our waiters fault, he was having to wait on all tables and wash dishes/help with prep. Restaurant owners need to hire additional staff. Customers should not have to wait 20 min before a server comes to their table and servers should not have to handle the entire restaurant by themselves.

    The food was good. Service was the worst I have had at a restaurant , let alone a nice place like this. Our server acted like we did not exist and we waited 20 minutes before coming to ask if we wanted something from The bar. We also ordered Queso to have with our chips and she came back about 15 minutes later to tell us they were out of Queso And then came back 15 minutes after to tell us they made more. She nevermcame back to ask about another round of drinks and she saw 3 times when passing tbe table we were iur id chips ans told each time she wouls bring more and never did. The only time we were able to get another drink was when my wife has to basically yell across to her. We will choos a different restaurant next time.

    Convenient to nearby hotels. Food was good. It is just expensive for what it is. So we go out of convenience more than anything else. If it was in Houston with comparable places we would probably never go.

    This ia the second time I have eaten there in the past 3 months. Food is good but service has been terrible both times. I was hoping the first time was an anomaly, but it was not. First time we were not given water until well after appetizers arrived and was told because they didn’t have any clean glasses. Second time our waiter completely forgot to pick up the drinks we ordered until he made eye contact with us while chatting with other waiters.

    The food is always good. However, the service was poor from the kitchen. We had ten people and the food came out at five different times. Drinks and appetizers just showed up whenever and never when they were requested. This place was not even that crowded so they should have been able to keep up. Same old excuses of we are slammed and short staffed. Neither appeared to be true. The general manager didn’t even bother coming by the table to talk to me as requested. Just bothered to discount the meal with some free queso and guacamole. This is a prime example of how to not treat any customer. This was our go to place but that is going to change. Disgruntled customer

    Very good food. Our table was in the back corner of the restaurant so our experience was limited. I would have rather sat in an area where we could see the TVs and been more involved. There were open tables in these sections. Limited menu. Your choice of fajitas, enchiladas, tacos or chimichangas. Very good drink and cocktail selections. Overall good experience.

    Server was slow, brought out tea with very little ice. Had to remind him to grab drinks from the bar. He spilled water on the table. Had ask twice for silverware and straws. Food was not the same as when we went a year ago. Way over priced for the size portions we received. We will not be back.
