    Well where to start!
    To say a good spicy pork burrito would be an under statement.
    2 days in a row, under 7.00 nice portion for a hungry guy!
    And to go as a carry out.
    They have beer there! Wish I still had a drink now and then! Lol!
    It is located in the old wapello county shopper building...
    There is good food happening here for sure.
    Nice clean taste on the food.
    Well done!

    We made a pit stop into town from STL and wanted tacos. This was one of the place that was open on a Sunday and I thought why not?! We had 10 steak tacos and it was very close to our favorite taco joint in Des Moines. I'm giving it a four star because when I went to go to the bathroom to wash my hands, they didn't have any paper towels and their bathroom was DIRTY. Overall, their tacos and hot sauces were good.

    While riding Ragbrai we stopped in, ( per Yelp reviews).  Place is a smallish hole in the wall,,,,, with fantastic food!
    Tacos especial, salsa, guacamole were everything you will ever want in Mexican food.

    Juquelita is clearly the best Mexican food in Ottumwa.  I like to eat at Cerro Grande, but Juquelita is a little more restaurant-y and the food is excellent.  My latest visit was just for tacos and they did not disappoint.  I appreciate being able to get lengua tacos.  They were juicy and tender with the right salt level.  I also appreciate being able to get them without onion.  Their squirt bottles of salsa are good accompaniments to the tacos.  I also had chorizo and chicken tacos.  Both were good.  The dilemma is, which to order.  I will keep coming back.  I might make it five stars.  It's close.

    Went there for the first time, and loved it! We ordered the steak tortas and they were awesome! The service was great and we will be going back very soon.
