AUTHENTIC AND FAMILY OPERATED
Since 2005 The Juarez family has been serving true Mexican eats.
The owners Irma and Manuel Juarez, originally from Mexico, came to the United States seeking the American dream.
Manuel grew up in the restaurant business from the time he was 9 years old in Mexico. Irma grew up grew up in a entrepreneurial family. During her teen years Irma opened and ran a dessert stand in her hometown. After working and saving for 16 years, their dream of owning a restaurant came to fruition in 2005.
Ironically, the location they chose to open the restaurant was the old La Escondida tortilla factory in which Manuel worked in when he first arrived in Newburgh, New York.
The dishes at Juarez are a mix of traditional flavors found within the Mexican States of Michoacan, Pubela and Mexico City.
Michoacan is best known for being the birthplace of Carnitas. Irma grew up in Sahuayo, Michoacan, where her mother taught her their family recipe for slow simmered Sahuayo style carnitas.
Pubela and Mexico City are famous for delicious street cart tacos. Manuel served as apprentice for popular taco carts eventually working his way up to running multiple taco carts within Mexico City.
