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

All around food is tasty, but "beef" anything is hamburger. Tamales were mostly dough, little inside. But the portions are large--a"tres" item was food for "tres". Prompt and pleasant service, good margaritas.

We go to Chico every year for vacation and a must on our to-do list is to eat at this restaurant. Their tostada's are amazing, their "special sauce" which is like a thousand island dressing is out of this world and worth going for on any menu item. Thanks to our niece who lived in Chico for introducing this restaurant... More

I tried their fish tacos and it was very good. I'm not sure what's up with the portions, they're huge. And that means taking many boxes of food home. The Chips they bring are ok. The food will be hot, somewhat fresh, and will taste good.
