If you’re looking for a taste of spicy Mexican cuisine alongside Cajun cuisine, then you might find yourself ready to be seated with a large menu at the whimsical wood-panelled restaurant known as Tia Juanita’s Fish Camp.
The southeast Texas restaurant chain started in April 2014 in Beaumont and was opened by owner Ricky Martinez. The restaurant was named after her Tía Juanita – her aunt Juanita. Martinez told The Enterprise that her aunt Juanita was married to a disabled World War II veteran who was shot in France. He remembers his uncle spending a lot of time fishing while his aunt spent a lot of time cooking fish.
