La Cucaracha prepares authentic Mexican food that will be enjoyed by everyone in your party. Don't eat too much chips and salsa before your meal…the portions are big! The margaritas are delicious as well!

Mole here is a nice mix of chocolate and spice, thick and savory with chicken. Great guacamole too, and a satisfying meal.

I went here a lot when I lived in St. Paul. Unfortunately was told by someone that the food is not as good as it used to be. But I'm sure it's still pretty darn good!

You wouldnt know it by just walking in the door, but La Cucaracha offers surprisingly sophisticated latin cuisine

Not quite as flavorful as the same dishes at Boca Chica (I loves me some lard in my frijoles ), but its all up to the cook and I only tried this place once.
