Juan’s Place
  941 Carleton/9th St.  Reminiscent of a Mexican roadhouse and always bustling, this family-friendly spot is named for the man who opened it.  Indeed, members of his family continue to operate the business and have placed his image on the menu.  Addictive flour chips (corn, too) are brought to the table when you sit down, along with a mild red sauce and a spicy green sauce, and sometimes a small plate of guacamole is included.  All the usual traditional Mexican items are on the menu:  burritos, tacos, tostadas, quesadillas, tamales, fajitas, flautas.  Enchiladas come stuffed with cheese or chicken, as well as with crab or shrimp, and are topped with a variety of sauces, including a deep, smoky mole.  Heavier meat entrees and several chilies are also options, and a horchata rice drink, wine margarita, and caramel flan dessert are also available.
