Ottawa residents now have an authentic gourmet Burrito shop they can call their own. Come to John Juan Burrito Mexican Grill and smell, see and taste the difference of fresh and homemade cooked food; all prepared from scratch in our own kitchen. Our motto is simple; Slow Homemade Food... Fast. Where it takes us a whole lot of time to prepare the food, but then we can serve it and customize it the way you like it in a short time. Preparation. Preparation. Preparation. We are up with the sun, dicing cilantro, chopping tomatoes, juicing limes, scooping out avocados, simmering beans, seasoning meats, blending salsas, baking desserts, braising beef and pork, and grilling steak and chicken to perfection. Almost all the food we serve is made in-house from scratch and by hand. We use the freshest and finest ingredients to make our food; with no processed ingredients, additives or preservatives. We have no freezer or microwave in our restaurant. We hope you will come and visit us soon!
