Salsa could be a little hotter. But nice little place. I had a wet bean & cheese burrito. I would recommend you try it.

They have really good food. But, they serve the smallest amount of chips, and if you ask for more you could be charged. If they make your order wrong, which they do almost every time we go, they charge you for their mistake. One time they didn't list everything that went on a dish, and it had cilantro, which is...

I have been eating at La Mexicana for over 35 years. Despite 3 different owners over that time, the food has always been delicious. It is great authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price. The service has always been friendly and the food portions are large. Recently, the restaurant has gone through a mini makeover and now has a complete... More

Service is bad. They will nickel and dime you for everything. Pay close attention to your bill, they will add too it if you ask for extra salsa/chips etc... The food is good, but the service makes not want to go back.

We ordered a chicken Taco and cheese enchilada with rice and beans. Also ordered two Corona beers with chips and salsa. The food tasted good and the staff were friendly and helpful during our visit. The atmosphere was festive and comfortable. Prices are average for what you get.

When I am visiting my home town, my friends and I always eat at La Mexican and are never disappointed. We went for dinner with 6 people and all ordered something different and it was all Great. Order the Salsa Fresca it is to die for.

The owners are the nicest people you will ever meet. They work very hard to provide a meal that is inexpensive yet very good!! Everything on the menu is excellent! The shrimp wrapped in bacon is a favorite. But the Alex Burrito, not on the menu, is to die for. Only mexican food better is in Texas!! I go there... More

We frequent this restaurant, and have never been disappointed. The menu is full of great options, and one of my favorites is the Al Gusto burrito......truly awesome. The wait staff is somewhat lax in getting to you, but with the food......I can overlook this part. The only drawback that does really bother me is that they just need to clean... More

I love Mexican food and I go to different Mexican food restaurants for different dishes. One of my regular stops is La Mexicana for the Tijuana tostada. You have your choice of meat, I get chicken, and it comes with lettuce, cheese, avocado, tomato, onion, sour cream, the the ingredient that really makes it, Italian dressing. I load on the... More

I have been eating here for over 25 years. I currently live in Washington DC but return to the area every 2-3 months. This is always my first evening meal out with friends and family. The food is always excellent and the portions are large. The service is very friendly but at times a little slow when the restaurant is... More
