Taqueria Juanitos — Home of the Five Dollar Combo
If you’re ever in the Valley, check out the hole in the wall called Taqueria Juanitos. The Mexican fast food restaurant is located in a small shopping center in Encino on the corner of Balboa and Victory. As you may know, Encino is a little bit of a drive but it is totally worth if you’re in the Valley because their food is just as delicious as their deals.
I love the vegetarian combo shown above. It comes with rice, beans, chips, sliced radishes and two soft tacos filled with lettuce, avocado, beans and tomato. The tacos have the perfect amount of spice to them, which doesn’t overpower their flavor at all. Taqueria Juanitos also specializes in a variety of meat-filled tacos with a wide range of flavors.
The only downside is the drink situation. Each refill is considered a new drink, which can get pricey. I recommend bringing your own drink or savoring your drink until you get your food.
