Always Good Food!

Since we are locals here this is one of our consistently good Mexican restaurants in the area! We have tried several different dishes and especially like their tortilla soup and Chili Rellenos.

One side is still the same great Mexican restaurant, they added an expansion and added a sushi restaurant on the other side. We went for Mexican lunch. Just as I remembered it. Owner is in site and pitches right in. Efficient service, cute decor and very cold Beer!

We have been going to La Tablita for year and have never been disappointed. Great salsa and guacamole. The portion are huge so you may think about sharing or combine appetizers with a main course. The fajitas are sizzling and enough to feed an army. Also don't miss the quesadillas. they are the best! The owner thinks he died and... More

My husband loves Mexican food and I love Sushi so how could we pass this place up. My husband had fish tacos and they looked great. The rice and beans that came with it were outstanding. The fish was grilled and very tasty. I had a Sashimi dinner combo. Soup salad nice selection of sashimi and steamed rice. It also... More

We had a great meal at a great price. We had fajitas, enchilada burritos, carne asada platter. Portions were larger than normal. My husband and I shared a fajita. Great chips and salsa and good service.

It's strange to go to a Mexican restaurant and order teriyaki and tempura but I often do that when I want something other than my favorite item, enchilada suizas. Yes, you can get wonderful Mexican dishes or sushi and Japanese entrees. La Tablita's left side of the restaurant is actually called Dragon Sushi although you can sit on either side... More

At one time this was our 'GO' to place for good, inexpensive Mexican food, but the owner has decided to add a Sushi Restaurant as part of his establishment, and it just doesn't work ... he's raised his prices and the food is no longer the quality it once was ... sooooo sad.

Huge portions and the food was hot. Guacamole was very good and the pitcher of margaritas is the way to go. You'll want to share the deep fried ice cream!

I have been coming to this restaurant every few months for a few years. We went for lunch on Sunday. The waitress seemed distracted and possibly serving too many tables. What I pointed to on the menu and made a few alterations was not what was brought to my table. In fact, the item served was $5 more.( I mentioned... More

Disappointed. Been coming here since it opened. Recent change of menu seems like they are going on the cheap. Enchiladas Suizas was best in town but, now they don't serve it with fresh avocado, sour cream, or with a jalapengo...they also went from 3 down to 2 enchiladas. Their unique and wonderful beef salad is no longer on the menu... More
