    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.

    Everything was great, and very authentic, except it was a hot day and they didn’t have any fans for the guests on the patios. In the end, that did detract from the overall experience for us.

    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.

    Our waiter was nice, but we had to ask for everything over 5 times. One of our guests food was brought out incorrectly and she had to wait for it to come back out and when it did it was an entirely incorrect order (at this point she was starving and ate it anyway) and another guest of ours had something missing which they brought out at the end when she had already finished her food. Most likely won’t be returning. Service needs to improve.

    Enchiladas were served ice cold and had to be sent back they were watery and had a green thin sauce covering them . The Quesadilla was filled with so many onions it was uneatable. Table was so dirty and sticky it was very unappealing Will not be going back anytime soon.

    Valentine’s Day! The owner/manager stopped by our table to say hello and check everything was satisfactory. The have a nice selection of genuine Mexican street food like street corn, delicious. They offer a selection of meat, veggie and seafood tacos. Also main dishes for those with a bigger appetite. On Valentines Day, they had a special on large passion fruit margheritas. Excellent!
