Juanita's - Closed

1043 Pearl St. Boulder, CO 80302 | Boulder | 303-449-5039

Location Description:

Juanita's has been in this choice location just west of the Pearl Street Mall since 1983 and has been serving some of Boulder's favorite Mexican food ever since. Among the most popular offerings are the chiles rellenos, lightly fried Anaheim chiles stuffed with Jack cheese and smothered in a hot green chile, and the cheese and onion enchiladas, topped with a traditional red-chile sauce. But half of the draw at Juanita's is the lively atmosphere, and you can have a good time here just nibbling on chips and fresh salsa while downing a margarita or two. Other Mexican joints come and go every day in this town, but you can count on Juanita's to still be here manana.
