Randy and Yvette Maldonado, the owners of Fajita Junction, know the difference that high-quality ingredients make to any recipe. “Our meat is Angus beef that is fresh and never frozen, using the inside skirt of the meat with choice or better cuts,” Randy told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times. “The meat is well trimmed so it has little fat before we put it on our mesquite grill.”
Angus beef fajitas are just one of the spot's popular, made-from-scratch dishes. The chefs also make fresh tortillas for tacos filled with chicken, sausage, or mollejas, as well as rice with Mexican spices and a chicken-stock base instead of the traditional tomato. The ambiance of Fajita Junction is a draw, too: high ceilings, wood floors, and flat-screen televisions entrance eyeballs with images of sports games and football players enacting soap operas on the sidelines.
Peace of Mind beautifies bodies and transports minds into a realm of relaxation with therapeutic spa services. The rejuvenating hour-long wine therapy massage kick-starts circulation and calms the nerves. With natural age-defying capabilities, red wine, which a therapist applies topically during the treatment, helps to de-age skin and fight free radicals. For those in need of up-top upkeep, the Fire & Ice facial exfoliates the complexion organically using the active fruity acids of apples and grapes. Detoxifying natural herbs including paprika help to clear out gunk burrowed deep in the pores, resulting in a glow that will elicit smiles from friends, co-workers, and the neighborhood mailman who bathes in the koi pond. The session wraps up with an application of a chilly, organic mask suited to the client's skin type, leaving the face firm and fresh.

The process aims to bolster health and help patients overcome a vast array of illness.
