Abuela Juannita

     Juannita’s is proud to bring authentic Mexican food to Bloomington, Indiana. At
the heart of our business is our family. Abuela Juannita, our namesake, has lovingly shared her recipes, and we’re entirely family owned and operated.
     Although the restaurant on West Kirkwood only opened in 2013, we’ve been in
Bloomington’s food scene for quite a bit longer.
     Since 2007, Juannita’s daughter Carmen has been known as Bloomington’s “Tamale Lady,” delivering delicious tamales to local restaurants. But bringing interior Mexican dishes that simply aren’t on any other menus in town was the entire family’s dream, and we came together to make it a reality.
     From the bright yellow paint outside, to the fresh salsa Verde, to the soda imported from Mexico and the homemade Horchata, was carefully chosen to show Bloomington a real reflection of our Mexican heritage. We hope you enjoy.
     Juannita’s is an authentic Mexican food restaurant that offers great meal at an affordable price. Open 11am-9pm from Sunday to Thursday, and 11am-10pm on Friday and Saturday.
     Juannita’s also offers catering service and group/private dinner reservations. The venue is also available for meetings, private parties and other social events.
