I love the atmosphere and the CHIPS and Salsa. So my favorite as well as the favorite of my other family members is the wet burrito! We also love the margarita as they are not your typical "bar mix" kind...they taste fresh and smooth.

Drove a half hour after checking their web site only to find that they decided to stop serving customers early.

Many years ago I ate at the Hacienda in Overland, MO. This Hacienda is is nothing like the one that was in Overland. The server was very prompt and courteous, but she could not overcome the mediocre food. We would have been better off

Don't blame Hacienda for your parking tow. The neighboring businesses are the ones who tow away cars who illegally park on their lots. Hacienda posts clear warning signs not to park on other lots, but some idiots continue to do so.

Going to the Hacienda is a special treat (great for girls' night out). The food is mouth watering and the restaurant is beautiful. The outdoor patio is expecially pleasant and relaxing.

Pros: The best Mexican food, in the prettiest setting!

Cons: The ladies restroom is way too small.

A friend of mine went to Hacienda last night and the parking lot was full. There was a parking area next to the parking lot where she parked so she could stop and make a phone call to the person she was meeting up with. A tow truck company came, slapped a boot on her car, refused to take it off, refused to tell her where they were towing the car, towed her car, and charged her $400 to get it back. This same process was happening to two other cars parked in this zone with a tiny "no parking" sign. After looking up the tow truck company Barcliff Towing, it is apparent now that this company works with various businesses in the St. Louis area to run this scam. I thought it was bad enough that Hacienda overcharges for their mediocre Mexican food but now it's clear that they're also entrapping their customers into a poorly marked illegal parking zone so that their network of thugs can extort vast sums of money from honest people. Despite their crappy food, I've always enjoyed Hacienda's atmosphere and margaritas. However, I won't go there anymore--I'll go to El Paisano, El Mague, or even Chevy's instead.

we we were there a week ago and we were seated waiting for our third person in our party and the manager mark came up and made us leave our table after we had been seated for 20 mins b/c our party wasnt there, how rude is that he told we had to leave the table and we could wait in the bar if we like we left we were so mad we will never go back and will tell our friends or any one to never go back to bad to lose a place to eat after going there for so many years i can find just as good of food somewhere else.

I looked at the parking and that had additional parking and I said wow lots of parking okay. The food portion was huge at least for me it filled me up. I had enough food to feed another person. I ate a dinner time. I didn't eat on the patio but the patio looked wonderful lots of tables, I ate inside and there were much room looked clean inside. The service was great. We had 15 ladies at our table a big group. She made sure I had plenty of water all the time.. good service I do say so. When I have plenty of water I am satisfy. She was very friendly. So yes I would recommend this place to my family or friends but see this is my opinion and my opinion only. You have to go and try this place to have your own opinion about this place. Cause I read the opinion about this place before I went and it was so poor rated that if it wasn't cause I was meeting someone I wouldn't have gone. I am glad I went now. You have to try for yourself and make your own decision sometimes. Cause see mine is different. I saw thing differently. Amen!!!!!!

This place is so overrated. Its nice to sit on the patio in the summer..but other than that...the food is blah...drinsk are expensive and small. The worst part is the manager!!! She made it a point to harrass and glare at us b/c we were seated before our whole party had arrived...umm. not our fault that happened. She actually came over to our table and lectured us. When we asked the waiter about what her deal was he told us that she was even worse with the staff. I dont think thats right...so I will not be going there again. Out of the dozen times Ive been there I havent really been impressed!

It has great Mexican food, and even better Margaritas. The outdoor patio is one of the best in St. Louis is the summer! Not too expensive, but not cheap.

Hacienda is a popular choice of ours when eating out in St. Louis - my only complaint about is that it is a little on the expensive side for Mexican food ($10-15 for an average sized entree). However, we keep coming back due to the 'happening' atmostphere.....expect an hour wait if visiting on the weekend. The facility is well-prepared for this, however, with an outdoor bar and hangout area. Not exactly ideal if visiting with impatient young children - but a fun place if it is an adults only evening.

We come here a lot I love the outside sitting when the weather is nice. Well the night we went for a work happy hour it was VERY hot. We decided to sit inside - boring!! The service was horrible. We had to ask for menus several times, we had to ask for drinks, for her to take our plates / glasses away.

Hacienda has a huge patio and is a great place to go for drinks in nice weather. I've never been impressed by their food, service, or prices. All of their success lies in thier location and large patio. If you're looking for great Mexican food, look elsewhere.

Pros: patio

This is a good, moderately priced Mexican restaurant where you can drink on the outdoor patio with friends, or go inside with the whole family, or even on a date with that special someone. It seems to fit all situations well.

PROS: Nice atmosphere and decor. Good food.
CONS: A little more pricy than some Mexican places.

The food was really good and service was adequate. It was a Friday afternoon, so there were probably more people there for Happy Hour making it busier...

The food here is okay -there are a couple of very good dishes, but most are pretty unremarkable. Unfortunately, the service needs improvement. It's not so much that it's bad (although some days it is) - it mostly seems apathetic. They just don't seem to care if you come back or not.

I'm originally from California where I'm used to cheap but tasty Mexican food. I was anxious to try Hacienda after glowing recommendations and after having ate there I can say that I was very disappointed with the food.

I had a 3 combo - chicken hard taco (chicken was soggy), pork tamale (better than average) and beef enchilada (red sauce was overpowering) with everything being on the salty side. Instead of fresh salsa it had the consistency of red tomato sauce.

The margaritas are good except that it's pretty sad to have them served in plastic 'dixie' cups when you sit outside on their beautiful dining patio.

I would recommend only going for the drinks & apps otherwise the entrees were disappointing.

We moved to Springfield, Missouri in 1992 and have never found a Mexican restaurant that even comes close to the Hacienda. Loved the food, atmosphere and, of course, the Margaritas.

After years of living in Missouri after relocating from California and hearing how wonderful Hacienda was... we finally made it in one day for lunch. Disappointed is an understatement! After having excellent Mexican food available in every city I had ever been to in CA... I have concluded that if Hacienda is "the best" and the most "authentic" ...it just isn't possible to get Authentic, GOOD Mexican food in MO. Even the Mexicans that work in the Mexican restaurant will tell you that the food they serve here has to be "Americanized" because people here don't like "authentic" Mexican. What a shame!!!

If you want good Mexican food, please dont waste your money here. The burrito I had at Del Taco the night before was MUCH better. The meat here was overcooked and underseasoned. The vegetables were obviously frozen and probably generic. It tasted just like one of my frozen Budget Gormet dinners, only there was a bigger quantity. Even the margarita was watery! And not even any ethnic music- just bad 70's music and the Simpsons on the TV. I imagine anyone who rated this place higher than a 5 is a big fan of the McValue meal. Probably dont get out much.

This is our favorite restaurant. Yes, it is a little on the blander side of Mexican, but that is what we were looking for. The salsa is good and very hot. The Margaritas are the best. Fast lunch service, more than adequate dinner service (who wants to rush dinner?).

In Short
The large indoor dining room is a bit run down, but diners don't seem to notice as they gulp their mango margaritas. Service is detached but adequate. The large menu contains stock versions of Mexican favorites, such as…
