If you are looking for a casual, inexpensive and tasty sit-down Mexican meal in North Scottsdale, Juan Jaime’s Tacos and Tequila fits the bill perfectly.
I recently had the opportunity to try Juan Jaime’s for the first time the other day. I had heard positive things about it, so a friend and I made a date for lunch there.
The menu at Juan Jaime’s is not huge, but it covers the bases nicely for those looking for their Mexican food favorites.
The starters include chips with a variety of dipping options – think salsa, guacamole or queso dip – as well as nachos. For salsa aficionados, there is also a self-serve salsa bar where you can sample several different types and heat levels. (They also have lettuce, cabbage and radishes for you to add to your meal in the self-serve area.) Also on the starters menu are a shrimp cocktail and tortilla soup.
For the entrees, you can choose from tacos, burritos or a salad. You pick from a variety of fillings such as chicken, steak, carnitas, mahi mahi, shrimp and even vegetarian and go from there. You then have the option to choose corn, whole wheat or flour tortillas.
If you want to mix things up a little bit, there are several platter entrees to choose from. Here, you have other options such as enchiladas, tostadas and so on. For a lighter meal or for children, you can order many of these items a la carte.
Deserts include a Kahlua Brownie with ice cream ,which was featured on Sonoran Living, as well as sopapillas and ice cream a la carte.
My friend and I each had the two taco meal where you can mix and match your fillings. I really enjoyed the tacos and the flour tortillas were great. They were much thinner and lighter than most restaurant tortillas I have had. One item I will be sure to try next time is the salad in a whole wheat tortilla. Several patrons were enjoying them for lunch. Our server was friendly and efficient and made us feel welcome.
Overall, I was happy with my meal at Juan Jaime’s. It was quick, tasty and I am glad I stopped in. If you are looking for a casual place for lunch or dinner with good food and friendly service, give Juan Jaime’s Tacos and Tequila a try.
