Juanita’s Mexican Eatery was founded in 2009 after sadly closing its small South Austin Restaurant. Juanita and her husband Ruben successfully stayed in business for more than 20 years winning numerous awards throughout their Restaurant career. In 2008 Juanita's husband Ruben was diagnosed with Meningioma a form of brain cancer. With medical bills pilling up & Ruben’s extensive treatment keeping the restaurant a float became difficult. Along with the help of their 4 kids (Ruben Jr, Veronica, Elizabeth & Dinorah) they started another chapter in life (Juanita’s Mexican Eatery).
In 2012 Juanita’s husband Ruben sadly passed away from his illness. Since, with the help of Juanita’s Son Ruben Jr they remain operational attending festivals throughout central Austin.
