Dining at La Mexicana Restaurant was definitely and authentic, relaxed and delicious experience. They simply serve the best corn tortillas on the planet. And they have the cleanest place you will ever step foot in. You could eat off of their floors. I recommend the chicken enchiladas, though the real reason anyone comes is for the tortillas with real butter pats, so you will have to get a to go box because you will be full by the time it arrives. I love the sodas in real glass bottles.

OK, so when you walk into La Mexicana you think, hmph, just another dumpy little Mexican place. You wait a bit too long for your order to be taken, and the server doesn't smile. But then you order guacamole and tortillas. You take a quick trip past the tiny kitchen, and you can SEE your guacamole being made fresh. And the tortillas are being shaped by hand. The food here is outrageously fresh and authentic. There are plenty of vegetarian options, and there is no lard in the beans. The tortillas are completely unrelated to the grocery store version--thick, hot, fresh, handmade. They barely bend around the meat in the chicken tacos, which are juicy and delicious. This place is only open Wednesday-Sunday, and they serve no beef, only chicken and pork. But it's unique, delicious, and warrants repeated visits for food you can't get elsewhere in the area.

Pros: Homemade fresh Mexican food for a great price, no lard, handmade tortillas

Cons: Lackluster service, very plain and basic looking place
