This is my third visit to La Paz. I like to stop here when we visit Lincoln and take a trip to Gateway Mall (it is just around the corner). The food is reasonably priced and is alway delicious.

Great Mexican food: We like the tacos, enchiladas, and the Fajitas. Great margaritas, but they are a bit small for $7-8. Service is usually good unless it is very crowded and you may have to wait a bit longer, but it is worth it. Plenty of parking out back. Casual atmosphere.

Went to La Paz with my husband and daughter. Everything was so good. Loved the chips, salsa, guacamole, burritos. Yum! My mouth is watering just thinking about it

This place has great food and has to be one of the best values in town. We didn't have the margaritas sadly but assume they are still wonderful. Their salsa is still my personal favorite.

My 1st time here, we were with a very large group of friends. We did call ahead and was told that they do not accept reservations, however they would accomodate our group the best they could. The service was very slow but the food was very good. Willing to try this place again.

Favorite Mexican restraint in Lincoln, good food each time, I am very fond for their Stuffed Chile Relleno and the Jalapeño Raspberry Margarita.

We always have quick service. The chips and salsa are excellent. I love that it is not totally authentic Mexican. Never had a bad experience here and we have been coming for years! Reasonably priced.

This is always the first place considered when we want to eat Mexican food. The food is delicious and filling. There is usually a wait to be seated, but it is always worth the wait. If you are a fan of Mexican food, this is one place to stop and eat.

I was hoping for a bit more authentic fare, but it was delicious!! Everything seemed to be fairly Americanized, as far as food. We had tostada plate, cheese enchilada & beef taco. Portions were huge! Server recommended an excellent margarita; fresh lime juice! On Friday night we tried to go with an hour wait, Saturday following the game, we were... More
