We eat here as often as we can (every few months). Meals start with corn chips and salsa, and there is nothing overpriced on the menu. Lunch specials are always good.

Love, Love, Love this place! I discovered this gem around 5 Years ago, and have never had a bad experience. I always get the #4 combo - 2 tacos, an enchilada and a Chile con queso for $7.95.

We are Canadians who love Mexican food, but can't get any in our community. We travel to Buffalo weekly though, and often stop in for takeout to bring home for the family. Good food, lots of selection, travels well and reasonably priced. You can't go wrong.

We had lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. The selections are awesome, the atmosphere was great and the staff was exceptional. We received excellent attention upon arrival and every request was honored quickly. I'm from Texas and must say this is as good as I could have expected. Thanks for everything.

I eat at La Galera regularly. Hot, fresh chips and salsa are delivered immediately once you are seated. The service is excellent and the food comes out very quickly, even when the restaurant is busy. The prices are extremely reasonable and the menu has a wide selection of items. The fried ice cream is delicious and the margaritas are very... More

After all the free chips and salsa we were only able to eat one fajita. Cindy was our server and was prompt and knowledgeable about... More
