I come to Storm Lake occasionally for work, and La Juanita's is a must have for lunch every time! You order at the counter, the food is done quickly, even though they are a very busy place. The food is also very inexpensive. I am personally in love with their beef burrito, which is very filling and $5.00!

Our high school and college kids love to eat here. They have locations in Storm Lake and in Sioux City. The little steak tacos with cheese and limes are excellent and low cost. If your a guy order six of them, they're small.

The burritos are the best, the tacos are tasty, the restaurant is excellent for a afternoon snack or after a night of dancing. This is where I bring all my guests and visitors.

Good but not great fast casual Mexican food. Prices are low and you get a lot of food for your money.

4 of us friends tried this restaurant since it was rated #1 in Storm lake. We were expecting a sit down restaurant with a wait staff but this restaurant is a little different.

I love La Jua's for lunch!! It is quick and easy! I love the fun, 3-D murals on the walls! After trying several things that were all quite good, I landed at the beef steak taco dinner. I get two tacos, rice and beans. My bill is always right around $5 which is a great lunch price!!! Usually, I add... More
