Best Mexican restaurant in Payson

Great food and service. It's 4:00pm on a Friday afternoon and the place is full. That should say it all. No complaints here.

We tried the La Sierra chicken dinner and it was delicious. The salsa is home made and was wonderful. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. It turns out that she is the wife of the owner. The menu is extensive and had some items that we had not seen before. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We drove up to Payson from the Valley for a day trip. We had narrowed the lunch selection to three restaurants based upon TripAdvisor reviews. After parking at the Swiss Village we browsed around a small boutique and struck up a conversation with the owner who spoke very highly of La Sierra. Decision made! The Cadillac Margarita was HUGE and... More

We loved eating at La Sierra. It is Mexican run, so the food is excellent, well prepared, plentiful, and very reasonable. We live in Tucson where there is an abundance of Mexican restaurants, and this one is right up there with any of the good ones.

What a pleasant surprise, to find this place in the Swiss Village area. I love my Mexican food, and this place doesn't disappoint! Good service, too.

We stopped in for lunch after visiting Tonto Natural Bridge. (A+). The interior is bright and colorful. The chips and salsa are good, but there is a charge for a second bowl. (strange). The food took a while to get to us and it was unremarkable. My wife had Chicken tacos and didn't really care for them. I had Chicken... More

Good Mexican food. Good service. Very reasonably priced. A little noisy. Beautiful tables and chairs. I would go again.

Here in the Southwest there seems to be a Mexican restaurant on every corner that you look, almost like hitting Jackrabbits on the highway :-D but if you want truly authentic Mexican food in Payson you have found the spot. It is a must stop when you're heading through the Northland. Food is awesome & service is impeccable

Authentic cuisine with friendliness and charm. The best shrimp chimichangas ever. Affordable, good service and good value for your dollar.

We ordered the Fijitas to share. Asked wait person if we could have the larger totillas. She said "when you order the corn tortillas they are small, the flour ones are large." Okay. She should have said," would you like some flour tortillas. Or, I can bring you some flour tortillas but there would be a charge." We would have... More
