My family and I recently had dinner at La Herradura prior to a show at the nearby Constant Center. I used to work across the street and have been going for close to a decade. It used to be wonderful but it's gone downhill recently. The previous time for lunch, they'd forgotten our order and it took 1 1/2 hours... More

Authentic. Large menu. Had a steak that was actually cooked perfectly. Food came out hot. Salsa was fine. Chips fresh. Better than the chains. Would definitely go back.

Second time at this one. Food was awesome! Service was perfect and the jumbo margaritas are very good!

I am finding it difficult to rate Mexican restaurants because the menu tends to offer the same selection at every Mexican restaurant. The food often tastes like every other Mexican restaurant. Which is not a bad thing. I would rate the food average at La Herradura as good as most others. The advantages this place has is a large, attractive... More

I love this place. The food tastes homemade and the endless chips, salsa, white sauce, and cheese dip is like heaven. I have enjoyed just about every dish I have tried here and, again, it tastes fresh and homemade. Nothing tastes jarred or under seasoned. This is, without a doubt, the best Mexican in the Norfolk area. Margs are hit... More

This is a must go every time I'm in town from NJ. I always come here with my cousin mostly for their frozen classic margarita. However, their food is delicious too. I typically order tacos or chips with guac. I love the atmosphere, especially during the summer since there's outdoor dining. I haven't been to Va in 3.5 yrs and... More

You'll often find the tables filled for dinner here, as the restaurant is situated right in the middle of ODU's village...however, many other people love to come here, on dates and with their families. Parking is sometimes a problem, remember to bring your quarters for the meters, and be prepared to drive around the block a few times or park... More

Being a college student at ODU, this restaurant was easily a place to become a regular customer. The food is decent and the waiters and waitresses are very friendly and attentive. However, the manager of the restaurant is why I have given such a low rating. If you happen to have a problem and call for the manager, prepare yourself... More

When we want mexican, this is the place we come to. The food is great, they have the best chips and salsas, and Pablo has his own fan page. And the prices are more than reasonable!

This was a favorite haunt of my son's while a student at ODU and it was new and vital then. Unfortunately, they have let it go and the seats are ripped and the place is just uncared for at this point, catering mostly to students. The food is "meh" - typical cheap Mexican step above taco bell and the atmosphere... More
