Awesome Mexican Food

I love this place. Great chips, great salsa, great place. Being from California I have had my share of Mexican and this place comes close to the best.

Love it.

This place may seem to be in middle of nowhere but they serve good food. I ordered the burrito and could not finish it and I have a big appetite. They also give you free chip and salsa. The softer chip is so good. You should also try the strawberry margarita, WOW.

Great atmosphere, bad mexican food

i've been to juan's countless times over the past ~5 years or so, it's a really fun place, good (if weak) maragaritas, great flour tortilla chips. but the food other than the chips is just bad at best. i don't know how so many people can give this such a high rating. it makes me embarrassed to be from san diego to see all these people reference juan's as the ""best mexican restaurant north of SD."" i was going to wri... view more

Worst Mexican you can get

Juan's Place. Probably the worst Mexican food I have encountered in Berkeley. The food is roughly like that found in chain restaurants such as Chevy's. The last time I ordered a burrito with no sour cream. What arrived at the table was a burrito covered in sour cream. The staff would not correct their mistake.\r \r For good Mexican the Mission District is the way to go.

A fun find

Good, cheap food and a friendly atmosphere make Juans a great place to go with friends. Too bad its a bit out of the way...I lived in Berkeley for four years before I even knew it existed. \r \r But the food and atmosphere are worth the little trek...its not fancy-schmancy tex-mex, its good old fashioned burritos, fajitas, and enchiladas. Go with friends for a casual, fun evening.

NOT AUTHENTIC: cheddar cheese grease

I felt compelled to write in because I went to this place because of the other people's ratings, but I'm pretty sure they're all Juan's friends. \r \r The Service was NOT bad, but the food was very very bad. I, without exaggeration, got a stomach ache. There was a pile of plastic-like ?monterey jack and cheddar cheese. The horchata was extremely watered down (maybe they didn't mix it before pouring). \r \r I'm so... view more

RAD

This is the best mexican food in all the northern california land! As a san diego native, i missed sit-down mexican places with great tasting, authentic food for the first year i was here - - THEN, i was magically introduced to Juan's Place: the answer to my mexican food prayers to the Virgin Gaudelupe Hidalgo! The wine margaritas rock (don't listen to these other peeps), but i got lost the first 4 times i drove th... view more

Best Mexi in Berkeley

The biggest problem this place has is its out of the way location. You really have to be brought here by a friend to discover it becasue it is so off the beaten track. Once you find it though, you will be hooked. Huge prtions and resonable prices, good ambiance and great for large groups. The one drawback is that the Margaritas are made with Wine becasue they don't have a hard liquor license. They still ta... view more

Jaun's is the Best

Best Neighborhood Surprise

You just have to go to this place to appreciate it. It's somewhere out in the nebulous warehouse area of west Berkeley, so it feels like a well-kept secret, which is part of the fun for me. The waiters are great, the strawberry margaritas come by the pitcher -- bring your rowdy friends! The waiters seem to love that kind of crowd. Don't get a burrito here, they're too sloppy. And remember, this place is fatty, greasy... view more
