The reliable stand-by

Every time we're having dinner or lunch, it's never disappointing, always good. Friendly service, reasonable prices - a reliable "go to" restaurant

Food order and service was fast. The food itself was okay, but I have had much better. My chicken chimichanga shape was flat and not much chicken inside. Salsa was nothing to write about. I will try a different place next visit.

Good food in a nice enviorment. Service was fast and food was hot all at a reasonable price. Classy little family owned business

This is one of the best restaurants in Payson. Been going there for years and the food is always good. Never have had a bad meal. The margaritas are also very very good.

When we are in the mood for classic family style AZ Mexican Food and in Payson from the Valley, we go here! Great: salsa, tamales, red sauce, Margie's, quesadilla.

We we there at 5:30 on a Saturday evening and there were already quite a few people there. Our salsa /chips and drinks came quickly but it was a 25 minute wait for our food order. The food was okay, though a little uninteresting. Flour tortillas came wrapped in foil and dried out very quickly.

1 waiter unable to keep up definitely will not go back 3rd bad experience. After waiting 30 minutes for food had to hunt down bill! If this is the best place in Payson try the Matador across from Giant on Beeline

My wife and I have eaten here several times, don't let the look from the outside of the restaurant detour you, the food is good, staff are friendly and prices are reasonable. I was pleasantly surprised to see multiple large screen TV's throughout with the Saturday evening football game on, no sound, but that was just fine. Worth a visit!

We first spotted La Sierra because we were on our way back from Tonto Natural Bridge State Park on HWY 87, and it had a wacky mis-spelling in the name painted on the building: "Restaurat." That was enough to get us to stop and try them. They serve Arizona-style Mexican food, but they haven't ventured too far from the Mexican... More

We had to try this place since the billboards said it was the best in Payson. They were right, the food was great! We really planned on going back but there was so much to see in the back country we never made it. Too bad.
