I'll admit, when they went from Memorial St to College Ave, they lost control of their quality because they quadroupled in size. Well, they moved back to a smaller restaurant and it's back to the owners doing it the way they used to - themselves only - and you will absolutely love their food because of it. They have an...

We were the first of few to enter in on a weekday night for supper. It appeared as though they were not ready to serve for dinner but open up the bar/nightclub. There was only one server/bartender doing it all. I wonder if he was cooking too!?! Food was OK, salsa was the highlight here.

Read some poor reviews but I had a Groupon so I went to try. If you don't like the food or service here, you should just stay home. Was seated right away and had a soda plus chips and dips right away. Waitress was very sweet, friendly, & attentive. Granted she can't wait on everyone, but she was a treat.... More

Very Bad service (We Were Definitely An Inconvenience For Our Server, Even Though We Were The Only Guests In The Restaurant). Music Was Way To Loud and They Ignored Our Request To Turn It Down. Food Might Not Have Tasted So Bad If We Didn't Already Have A Bad Taste In Our Mouths From The Bad Service!

If you want authentic mexican, this is the place! The food was good, atmosphere could be changed and a little better service. We didn't mind sitting and talking but the place was not busy so we expected prompt service. The maragritas are good though! I would come back again and give it another try!

Seemed to have issues placing simple drink orders and while it was a very diverse menu, the waiter was swapped out twice with others as he was needed elsewhere.

La michoacana's is my favorite authentic Mexican restaraunt in town. The food is hand prepared and home made. The food is great pared with their bean dip or salsa selection. My friends and I come here quite a bit and are always satisfied with the results (even if the waiters can be VERY friendly at times... ;) )
