Very good Mexican food. I had the chili Verde pork my companion had the pollo mole and both of us liked our meals. The tortillas were served really hot, and were quite tasty. Mixing the pork, rice and refried beans and eating on your tortilla was the way to go. Unpretentious surroundings very nice people, family-owned and you meet the... More

We had been going to Janitzio's in the early 2000's before leaving the area. Now back, we stopped in for a meal. Maria and Huratio treated us like lost relatives. And the food was superb as always, Don't understand the negative reviews - we love this place.

Since moving to Idaho, we were "good" Mexican food, that is until we found Janitzio's! The atmosphere is not fancy (it is clean), but the food makes up for it. It's everything you want from a hole-in-the-wall Mexican place. I'm not sure what the negative reviews are talking about, as our food has been good-looking and delicious every time, and... More

I love this place. It is a family restaurant with the "grandmother/owner" in the back actually making your meal. The place is very clean and attractive. It has small town atmosphere and is just a fun welcoming place to have a very delicious meal. The food diverges from the traditional taco fare. I've never had anything but YUM at this... More

not attractive or tasty. Would recommend that they change the appearance of their sauce. Is not appealing to the eyes. Need to make tortillas homemade not store bought

food was unattractive. What my mind said was good, the servings were not. Can't eat sauce that looks like puss.

Chips and salsa and Carne asada burrito was pretty good but the pork fajitas were the best! Good service too!

This restaurant is not a 5 or even a 4 and is a 3 at best. Sometimes Trip Advisor's reviewers get it wrong IMHO. It's a clean but older restaurant and the staff was friendly and the service was very good. That's the best thing. The chips were stale and the salsa literally tasted like watery tomato sauce. We asked... More
