Celebrated a birthday. It was as a shame they were working on a construction project.

Steak tacos and potato/chorizo tacos were really good. Didn’t care for the the chicken with bacon ones as much. Elotes were very good and a nice size portion. Had the raspberry smoke margarita and it was excellent. Not too sweet.

Food was good - menu is similar to Puebla. Margarita was also good, nothing special. But service was slow considering we were there on a Tuesday at 12:30 pm and it wasn’t crowded at all. Staff was friendly and good.

It really seems as if some of these reviews were created out of personal spite, which is really unfortunate because those small, close-minded people will really never fully understand what a high quality Mexican restaurant really is. La Mesa wowed me in more ways than one. The food was exceptional, drinks were top notch, and service was spectacular!

Food was great. Drinks were great. Not a lot of patrons so it was quiet. Taco Tuesday was a good deal

Menu is basically the same as Puebla but different cooks because the food was not as good as Puebla (seemed less quality and cheaper tasting) It appears it is the same owner as Puebla which moved 2 blocks away so does not make much sense. The drinks while again similar ingredients to Puebla had little to no tequila in them. Disappointed and will not be returning.

Chips and salsa are not brought out, you have to order off of the menu. Menu is basic but food is good.
Restaurant was a little messy, bathrooms were not kept up.

The food was delicious! Rene provided fantastic service and Tom’s margaritas are so good. We ate outside and enjoyed the concert on 1st plaza. Be sure to check out La Mesa!
