We have gone to La Magdalena several time for lunch. Unfortunately, it's not high on my list. The food is okay, but nothing spectacular. The service is good and it's decorated nicely. The staff is very friend, but the food just doesn't do it for me.

This place is a gem. When you walk in the front door, Flavio greets you with a warm smile and welcomes you by name (if you are a regular). The margaritas are a must as they are made just right. Service is friendly and efficient. The menu offers a great variety of excellent tasting food. Try this restaurant out, you will come back often.

The food was edible, but tasteless. I ordered Chiles Relleno. They came with an Italian looking red sauce with green peppers and onion in it. The chiles were difficult to find under all the sauce. There was no flavor to the food. The service was non-existent. We were left alone for very long periods of time. Our group typicaly has coffee after dinner. We were never asked if we wanted coffee. We had to go find a service person to ask for our bill. We will not be returning.

Pros: Ambience. Nice place. Had very good singers.

Cons: food was tasteless. Service was worse.

We're not sure what happened. This place used to be great. Now however, we've been disappointed with even the fajitas. They have been opening up several new locations, so perhaps the owners have been spread a bit too thin to effectively watch quality everywhere.

Pros: Elvis impersonator in the bar - freaked out a guy from Memphis - not what you are expecting at a Mexican restaurant.

Cons: Quality has been going down

This place is great for a night out with the coworkers! The chips and salsa and margaritas are great, and the entrees are very filling. Good Mexican food seems hard to come by these days, I highly recommend this place.

Great place for Mexican food. Margaritas are a specialty and they are more than special! Prices are a bit high, but portions are generous, and quality is excellent. The skirt steak is awesome! Take a coupon and it's well worth your time!

We have been at La Magdalena several times since they opened and every time we had a very good experience. The food IS EXCELLENT! We are from Mexico and we can tell you: the food tastes like REAL MEXICAN FOOD, not like Taco Bell. The place is really nice and the service is excellent. We are looking to our next visit!!

This restaurant is a great place to go for authentic Spanish cuisine. The place is big enough to host parties. The atmosphere is very festive and it is a great place to go for casual dining. They serve chips and salsa and pickled vegetables at every table.

We were looking forward to good margaritas and Mexican food. The margaritas were fine, and the restaurant was clean and in great shape. Everything else was below-par. You could have anything you wanted, as long as it was exactly what was on the menu. The only substitution that could be made was to use refried beans instead of . The service was slow, the small portions of food were neither well-prepared nor tasteful, and were only luke-warm. At the end of the evening we asked to have our bill split in two parts: one for the alcohol and one for the food. Sorry, "no".

"No" pretty much sums up this place. You'd be better off across the street at Taco Bell or, perhaps, at the nearby Chevy's, where they welcome the customer rather than making it seem like they're doing you a favor by letting you in the place.

La Magdalena has a very good lunch buffet with a very big selection. They even have yummy deserts on it - flan and fresh fruit, as well as rice pudding. For someone like me who does not eat red meat, it is still a very satisfying buffet
