    Loved the food and the environment we just had an incredibly inattentive waiter. We waited for over 30 mins to even get our orders takwn and he never asked if we needed anything. It was possibly the worst service we’ve ever had and it was my bday but overall the experience was very nice and I really enjoyed the establishment.

    We went in for brunch on Sunday. There was a total of 9 of us.  We had a reservation in advance, so sitting down and getting a table was fairly easy.. Service was great  and they were very attentive. The tip was included in the bill, so that’s something to keep in mind. We didn’t have an issue with it.  The appetizers were great. I recommend the three dish appetizer, which is queso, corn and guacamole. The guacamole was delicious. we all got the pitcher for margaritas. It was essentially not a margarita but a combination of a margarita and Mamosa. It was good. The pitcher easily included 4 drinks. So for 20 dollars is a great deal. We all got different dishes and it was all delicious. We had no issues  with our food. Lastly, there was entertainment which was nice!  We would come back.

    This place is really awesome, but definitely has some flaws. The food takes a while, which is fine because it is always super fresh, and delicious, but the service is terrible, and they didn't even offer to bring out nachos until we requested them. I don't think the place was busy enough to warrant such slow service, so maybe they need more waiters or faster staff. Also, this place is called La Mexicana, and the live music was country...just kinda weird. The guy was good, it just would've been nice to have some spanish music at the spanish restaurant.

    Had a great brunch experience. Service was outstanding and food was so tasty. Everything came out pretty quick and was very fresh. Prices are average for the area (as expected). The breakfast burrito was huge and filled with flavor - I would reorder this. The birria quesadilla was really good as well. Overall great experience and I would go back.

    We found this hidden gem on our last visit. Came back this year and brought friends. Love everything about this place. The authentic mexican food, staff, drinks, and decor are perfect. Its tucked into its own area, away from the crowds and strip malls. Our friends loved it, the waitress was helpful with food accomadations for one of friends on restrictions, and never batted an eye. See you on our next trip.

    Vacation! Quiet location. Great food and service. Didn’t have all drinks listed on menu and not enough help to check us in on OpenTable so that was a little off. Staff very friendly and very fun holiday decor. Outdoor restrooms hard to find. Parking area seemed dim and a little sketchy

    Food was good. They had drink specials but didn't automatically honor them. Then when reminded at checkout they reduced the price, but not the 2 for 1 special. Unfirtunately for them, we don't appreciate this at restaurants even though everything else was good. Will not be back!

    Atmosphere is amazing, really reminds me of cool restaurants in Mexico City or Guadalajara, mostly outdoors, perfect. However, it kinda goes downhill after that. The food was ok, but for me and the other people in our party, it needed more flavor and/or spice. Was definitely Mexican food, but needed more punch. The biggest issue for our party was the fact that they don’t have a full liquor license and use wine based fake liquor for their drinks. HOW DOES A MEXICAN RESTAURANT NOT HAVE A FULL LIQUOR LICENSE AND SERVE TEQUILA. That is just dumb. Our bill would’ve been 2-3 times more because we would have ordered margaritas and tequila and stayed much longer. A few people got a margarita which were just ok, because they didn’t use real tequila, really a huge miss. If they had a real bar with good tequila, I would go back for the atmosphere and drinks and maybe get an app or two, since the food isn’t great. But without a full bar, we won;t be back.

    You go to La Mexicana for the ambiance and atmosphere. The food was edible but not that great. For the guacamole specifically, it was heavily lacking salt and lime. However my sister had a delicious carnitas quesadilla which she said she would come back for! There was a live DJ and everyone was having a great time. However, the service was absolutely horrible. Our waitress, while nice, did not bring our drinks correctly, nor did our food cone out correctly. Which I know isn't always the servers fault as I work in the industry. But, she did not once come back to our table after taking our order the whole hour and 20 minutes we were there. We watched as she went to other tables and refilled drinks, brought new beers ect. My sister and I even made a bet as to when she'd come over to bring the check. We sat at the table dobe eating and with dirty dishes for a good 30 minutes. I also had no water refills the entire night. I drank all of my water before the food even came out... I am honestly very disappointed with the service and the food and I would not recommend it for those reasons.

    Reminded 3x to please bring hot sauce and never received so gave up and ate my tacos plain. As a former server, I always tip well and left 30 bucks on a 120 tab for one adult and 3 pre-teens. Could be just a one-off night but felt the other servers were more attentive than the server assigned.

    Food was great, street tacos were bomb! And the DRINKS, oh my god. If you’re looking to get drunk drunk this is the place!!! The only thing I didn’t like was the small bathroom and the waiters, although they were nice they barely came to the table to check if we needed anything. But overall it was a nice chill vibe spot!

    This place might be very good on a regular day but on 5 de mayo was a full mess. We were celebrating a graduation, made a reservation over 3 weeks ahead. They called me twice to confirm when we got there some rude lady was like you have a reservation for 7? Well make the line like everyone else. Luckily we found another employee and got our table. We ordered appetizers right away but didn’t get them for almost an hour. The food was mediocre, a shrimp quesadilla with only one shrimp, chicken quesadilla that had some meat that was definitely not chicken. An Al pastor quesadilla with no pineapple so basically just pork and cheese. The server didn’t even offer to bring pineapple just said “well they are busy, other customers complained about the 1 shrimp quesadilla” like it was okay. When we mentioned it was true and showed him he just walked away.
