We were in Starkville helping my daughter get moved in for a short rotation at the College and we were hungry after the long drive. Wasn't sure how the food would be in a college town but decided to try this place. The food was very good and so was the service. The restaurant was very clean. When we go... More

Starkville has plenty of Mexican restaurants but this one is the best. Good food and super friendly staff.

La Ta always has friendly service and a festive atmosphere! Our go-to choices are frozen lime margaritas, P5, and the grilled chicken quesadilla! Our favorite place to eat in Starkville!

Service was excellent!!! Frequent check-ins by waiter. He was funny and personable! Gave a 20% tip. Food was good- steak quesadilla was loaded with delicious caramelized veggies!! Spinach enchiladas were good as well. Only food that was so-so ... I ordered a side of guacamole- looked and tasted like it was mixed in blender... kind of bland. Will definitely return.

POSITIVES: The Mexican-themed (what a surprise) décor is actually very tasteful, would be worthy of a higher-end Mexican restaurant in a more urban environment. The food was tasty and plentiful, and while arguably not entirely authentic, was also not just your typical Americanized “Tex-Mex”. Prices are very reasonable, especially the alcoholic beverages. Portions are impressive. The leftovers provided much of... More

The interior of this restaurant appears to be a courtyard of a building with a tile roof, which means that it's a bit more attractive than you find in most Mexican restaurants. The three adults in our party all ordered from the lunch menu, from which you can build your own plate of either two entrees and one side or... More

I only ate at this place twice. Both times the food was great. I had the p5 steak and chicken and it was great. A nice setting also but sometimes it be a little cold. Awesome place.

The food here is OK but nothing different from every other Mexican restaurant around the area. Average food. Service was very good. Waiter was polite and prompt.

The place is very nice, and this is easily the best Mexican restaurant in town. I'd even pick it over many other restaurants in general in Starkville. The chips are thin, light, and crispy, and the salsa tasted fresh. I had the Super Quesadillas, which were huge and stuffed with steak, chicken, peppers, onions, and cheese. Everyone else loved their... More

Really good chips, so a solid start. Regular Mexican favorites plus a few additional dishes on the menu. Quesadillas were good, service was on par.
