  • "Reasonably priced neighborhood gem. Creative specials, and huge portions. There is always enough food to take home for lunch the next day. We can always count on a delicious meal with excellent service."

  • "Driving down Rt. 70 we would have kept going looks like a small dingy place but on e inside you see the authentic Mexican flare They place is small but the food is real from scratch Mexican, so if you are looking for a nice Mexican restaurant this is the place . we love to try new places and we were very happy with our meals. The place is BYOB so if you go take some beer or wine and enjoy. I would a reservation as I said the place is small."

  • "We recently visited La Cita again and were as impressed as we were with our previous visits. There are only a few tables, so it can seem a bit "cozy" and without a reservation, you may have to wait a bit for a table, but its worth the wait. Excellent food, super service, and its a BYOB. need I say more? If you are a tequila fan, bring your favorite bottle and La Cita will supply the Margarita mix. enjoy. TG 3/10"

  • "I went there with 3 friends for a late lunch. It's a very small restaurant but they delivered in a big way on the food! It's authentic Mexican and it beats the chains hands down. All four of us had one of the specials and the food was fabulous. Even the nachos that we started with were not your typical chips with meat and cheese. These were many steps above! Our waitress was really nice and a great server. We made a reservation for lunch which we didn't need, but I'm sure you would need one for dinner. Great food, great service and very clean."

  • "if you're looking for AUTHENTIC Mexican food - this is your place! From appetizers to dessert, no one in my party of seven was disappointed. The waitress knew the menu and the kitchen was willing to change a few items for someone who LOVES spicy foods."

  • "La CIta is a good option for reliable, basic Mexican food prepared with fresh ingredients and served without fanfare. We like that the kitchen prepares its meals without smothering everything in cheese. The guacamole is worth a try. Prices are very reasonable with entrees in the 14-18 range. We return here regularly whenever we are in the mood for Mexican. It's a BYOB or BYOT, depending on your mood!"

  • "Always great food and great service. My wife and I split the house special appetizer and a shrimp molcajete. Plenty to eat and a great sampler of items on the menu. I have ordered mole poblano in the past and it was excellent. I would love it if the owners could add some Yucatecan food to the menu. Excuse me for shameless lobbying but cochinita pebil, panuchos and salbutes sure would make excellent additions to the menu."

  • "We really enjoyed our meal at La Cita. Group of six, ordered multiple appetizers, all authentic and delicious. Mole was a highlight. Good service. Will be back"

  • "Joined another couple who discovered La Cita several weeks ago. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. It was a Saturday night and even though it was busy, the service was excellent.The large portions were fresh and delicious and reasonably priced. Did read a complaint that the restaurant was too cold. It's a small, intimate space so when the door opens you do feel a chill, if you like good authentic Mexican food in a friendly atmosphere this is the place for you."

  • "The Pollo en Pipian with its delicious pepita sauce is recommended, though more vegetables with the dish would be desirable. The staff was quite friendly and the service was prompt. For excellent quality food and great service, the cost was quite reasonable."

  • "My wife and I made reservations through open table for 6:15 on a Saturday night however were not needed. La Cita has about 10 tables that seat four so I would not suggest going with a large group. The food was on par or better than other local Mexican food favorites such as tortilla press, don Pablo, on the border. I would highly recommend the molcajetes which is served in a hot lava rock and was absolutely delicious. This is a BYOB place so our bill only included our two entrees and was $35.00 for a party of two. We had no issues with slow service as other reviewers have stated. For a Saturday night everything was served promptly and at no time felt service was slow. We will definitely be back"

  • "This is a small BYOB that produces consistently good food. If you like Mexican, you should give it a try. It is homestyle, nothing overly fancy or exotic, just fresh and good basic Mexican standards - that most Mexican restaurants don't get right!"

  • "What a great experience! We had real authentic Mexican food. I highly recommend the hot lava bowl with shrimp- it had jumbo shrimp in a savory sauce bubbling with flavor. Side dishes were delicious also. My husband's fajitas were yummy also. Would definitely return soon."

  • "Went with wife and teenage son. Seated at one of 8 tables after brief wait. Had reservations, not sure they matter. Place was moderately busy. Tables not jammed together, decor bright and uncluttered. Mexican sodas w tropical flavors were good. Salads fresh, not chilled. Appetizer sampler platter ok, guacamole, pico de gallo, mole sauce fresh and flavorful. Jumbo shrimp wrapped in bacon, and ribeye steak entres were standouts, well prepared. Tacos were not, pork and sausage fillings dry. Tequila ice cream not worth it, flan good, not great, tres leches cake another standout. All portions ample. Food interesting. Service friendly and competent. Some waiting for each order. Unhurried. Moderately priced. Unanimous thumbs up. We will be back."

  • "The food here is very authentic and delicious. Their horchata is some of the best I have had. The food takes a little time to come out, but it is always worth it."
