We have been coming to La Mexicana for year and I can hardly believe that I have not written a review for them. The are so friendly and reliable with good dinners and great luncheon specials and we keep coming back. I love the chicken Tostaditos. A place with three small tostada and rice and beans. It is always just... More

I really like home made salsa...and this cafe has a wonderful choice of them. It appears to be family run and looking at it from outside...you may want to drive past..but I would truly suggest that you stop in. The portions are plentiful so you will not go away hungry.

Good food fast service great place to go with the kids. My family eats here often for dinner and I know they have lunch specials. Would be nice if they had some drink specials.

Stopped in for dinner. Looked like a real locals place. Wonderful chile rellenos. Big portion, brought half back to the hotel. I hope I remember to put it in the cooler for tomorrow. My husband had the shrimp diablos. Really tasty and spicy. All of the shrimp dishes looked really good. We will be back.

Sunday night, winding down, we came to this small, family run restaurant while staying in Atascadero. Food and service were fantastic! I had the Pozole, while my husband enjoyed the Carnitas (crispy style). Huge portions, and the flavors were truly authentic. A definite stop for us next time we are in town.

This is our family's favorite Mexican restaurant. It is family-run and the food and service are both excellent. One of the best things on the menu is the Shrimp Enchilada. If you don't like full plates and lots of cheese, though, don't bother. Check out the guacamole tostada - yum! Unlike a lot of Mexican restaurants, they don't pile on... More

My second or third favorite mexican restaurant in town. It has a nice cozy atmosphere, and the food is fine, but it is a big plate of melted cheese on practically enything you order.
