Food and service were great. We had to order drinks as “desserts” because the voucher said $50 toward food and drinks for 4 people. Ended up spending a lot more than we initially expected ($45 including tips on top of the $30 for the Groupon purchase) but overall it was great. Kids loved the soda pop dessert idea!

After my overall experience, I would not recommend buying a Groupon for Juanita's. Just pay outright, if you really want to go there: We went to redeem it on a Friday to be told that they are only redeemable Mon-Thurs. This didn't sound right to me- I am very good at remembering these things. But we left because I didn't want to make a stink and then have them potentially give us bad service. We had a lovely lunch elsewhere. I came home and checked both my code and the offer for exemptions. I was right. There were none. I called Juanita's and explained all of the above, along with the fact that they are getting bad reviews because others are having the same issue. He apologized and said to "Come in and we'll take care of you" (a free meal, at this point, would not have been out of line to win back my loyalty). I didn't want to take a chance on having an issue, so came back on a weekday and didn't tell them about the Groupon until it was time to check out on advice of my daughter, who has also been a server. The server was professional and kind about the Groupon when I presented it to him after he had brought the check. My daughter told me that EVERYONE who uses a coupon does not take into consideration that the server does the same work regardless and tips on the amount post-discount, so they tend to not give excellent service to those tables. They had never served to her mama before. So we tipped on the amount BEFORE the code was applied and the server seemed to appreciate this. The lunch was delicious, the service professional and spot-on, portions generous, and atmosphere clean. He even offered a to-go drink for my 2-year old grandson. But we will not be back, because my trust was broken- there are enough great Mexican restaurants in Bloomington that it's no skin off my nose. Might be off of theirs, though- After reading so many reviews I see that my experience is not unique.

Food was great. Groupon use was an issue. They require you to get food & drinks. Even though we ordered well over $25 worth of food, they made us pay for drinks at the end.

We had seen other reviewers say they only honor Groupons early in the week (even though there is nothing about that in the deal) so we went on a Monday. After saying we had a Groupon, the waitress required us to buy 4 sodas to use the Groupon (even though there is nothing about that on the deal). We've eaten here many times before, but this was the worse service by far. Only 1 of us got exactly what we ordered. It took forever to get drinks (that they made us buy) refilled. Never again.

Like the reviewer from one week ago, we were hassled over using the Groupon on a week-end evening. Our dining experience was ruined by the waitress and manager offering alternate deals like 20%, and then 25% off our meal. It was ridiculous to sit and negotiate a price with the Groupon in our hands. Nothing in the fine print or purchase page mentions week-ends excluded. By the time they said they would honor it our experience was already ruined.

Using the Groupon was a bit of a problem. Waitress said the Groupon deal isn’t good on weekends, but she let us use it anyway. Another waitress said we had to buy 4 sodas or teas to use the Groupon. We had to ask two times for another basket of tortilla chips, I don’t think she wanted to give them to us. Food is very overpriced for what you get.

Flavor of the food was good... portion size was rather small. Not sure if we will come back. Not likely.
