Went here for my nephew & my birthdays. It was the first time I'd been here & was impressed with the whole place! The servers were friendly & the food was delicious!

I have eated at La Hacienda for over 40 years and have never had a bad meal. They offer a wide variety of Mexican entrees to suit any taste or appetite. The free all you can eat chips and salsa and reasonable prices make LH an excellent value.

If you like what passes for Mexican food in North Dakota, this is the place for you. Don't get me wrong, it is not horrible food- it is simply not Mexican food! The look of the dishes are fine, it is the total lack of strong favors or spices that is missing. I was born and raised within 175 miles... More

I love the Tostada Salad at La Hacienda Restaurant. From the fresh ingredients to the traditional dressing, this salad is a "Chico Tradition". It is my "go to" lunch on a busy day. Just pick it up at their curbside pick up area and go. Whether I order pork, chicken or beef, I am never disappointed.

I have been a customer of La Hacienda since it opened at another location over 55 years ago. As many have mentioned the salad dressing on the Tostada brings people back as it does me. As this food not only tastes delicious it brings back a lifetime of memories. Tasty food at a fair price with some classic favorites makes... More

The food was served cold. The last 2 times ate there, my husband got sick. Poor service too. I don't think we'll go back again. Very limited menu too.

Whenever I'm craving Mexican food and I'm in Chico or on the way home from Chico, this is my favorite. They menu isn't huge but what they offer is delicious especially the tostadas. The portions are huge (always enough leftover for lunch the next day) but their signature dressing is what sets La Hacienda apart from other Mexican restaurants. They... More

How can I not like it.... have been going there since age 8. (a very long time ago) my friend was once a waiter there, and advised me there were other items on the menu that were really good. However, since I only am there three or four times a year, I really need to enjoy the ORIGINAL TOSADA (and... More
