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.

Food was ok. Bland. Glad we asked for the hot salsa. Alcoholic beverages are limited. Mexican pizza is small.

We live in Phoenix AZ and have gone up to the Mogollon Rim and Payson for years, and we have always felt that there was no real good place for Mexican food...until now. We had our grandson with us for a drive in the mountains and some trout fishing. We saw a little mexican restaurant that looked out of place,... More

We have eaten at La Sierra many times and the food is always good. The restaurant is always clean and the staff is friendly. Try the shrimp wrapped in bacon or the chicken with the cream sauce. Eat in or take out. We stop by on our way home from a trip to the Phoenix area and pick up take... More

La Sierra is a neighborhood Mexican restaurant with a very good selection of dishes that are tasty and well-prepared at a reasonable price. We went at a busy time, so the service was slow. The chips may not be the best in town, but the food more than holds its own with the competition.

Perhaps I am biased as I have eaten wonderful Mexican food allover the Southwest. However, this food was pretty ordinary. I liked the fact that they offered "low cholesterol beans" as an option. However the salsa was bland, the tacos had very little on them and the taco salad seemed like the ingredients were not flavored. the serving staff were... More
