Iowa Taqueria Named a Best ‘Hole in the Wall’ Mexican Restaurant
Taqueria La Juanita in Sioux City has developed a bit of a cult following. They're known for their carne asada burrito and their pickled carrots.
What people say: Though the red-checkered floor makes La Juanita feel like a diner, the late night hours with a line out the back door proves otherwise. Locals call it "La Juas" and many "still think it's the best Mexican food in town" even after 20 years in business. Beto O'Rourke even made it a campaign stop when he was running for president in 2019.
Taqueria La Juanita has a 4.7 out of 5 rating on Facebook with over 500 reviews.
It's now on my personal must-try list, and I know it will be worth the trip!
