It all began back in 1990, when Pearland had only one high school and O’Day Rd pushed the city limits. Struggling to provide for a family of five, Simon and Mary Zavala invested their life savings to start a family business that catered to the spirit of the hard-working people of the community….and thus, Juanito’s Mexican Restaurant was born. Word spread fast about our uniquely flavorful Mexican cuisine and our passion and commitment to quality service. It didn't take long before friends and neighbors asked for the recipe to our signature hot sauce and green sauce – a secret that is well guarded to this day.
Today, Juanito’s remains a central figure of the Pearland landscape as we have been serving the community for over the past 24 years. The warm atmosphere and family-focused attitude is the benchmark of our success and remains the focal point of our commitment and beliefs. We take pride in living a set of shared core values that govern our relationship with our customers and community. Our success is measured by the value we provide the people that we serve. From our family to yours, we promise to remain committed to becoming the most trusted and valued service-driven restaurant that Pearland has to offer.
