La Mexican is very impressive. The take out counter is quick and the food is good. There is a market, and it has a bakery, meat counter and fresh produce.

We ate here on recommendation of the Manager from our time share. She did say it does not have a lot of abeyance and she was right. It is a take out from a market that has about 8 stools inside and 4 or5 picnic tables outside. That part was ok as it was a terrible autumn day in Tahoe... More

We did an online search to find somewhere to eat and were surprised to find that there were multiple Mexican restaurants in the area so decided to give this one a try. Our GPS kept sending us to a different location, so we parked a couple of blocks away and walked to find it. It turns out it's located inside... More

The food is awesome. The decor is not. Just a few stools and a few tables outside. Everyone in our group was pleased with their food. This is just a little shop with an adjacent small grocery store. A great stop for something quick to eat. Not a great stop for sitting for a casual meal.

A server at a local Mexican resturant told us about la Mexicana if we wanted a good burrito. Large portions, good meat, fast service, very impressed. May stop here each we are headed to the cabin.

La Mexicana has been our first stop when arriving at the Lake, always in the past providing tasty, inexpensive Mexican food. Our visit this time was a major disappointment. The rellenos were covered in masses of heavy batter and had too much cheese, the cheese enchiladas had little flavor and seemed to have no filling and the sopes were just... More

I've eaten here weekly for the last six months. They could really expand their business if they had more indoor seating, currently its 4-5 barstools at the window. Bakery is great for dessert. The selection of salsas is great. I feel as I'm eating in my abuelitas kitchen. Great food!

This place is located in a tiny Mexican market. They don't really have any seating except for 3-4 bar stool it's so crowded with people waiting for their food, in an area as small as a bathroom, that it's not worth eating there. The food us authentic an obviously a place where the locals go. The carnitas burritos were fabulous... More

The store is small and crammed full of Mexican items, some of which you can't find in the local supermarket. My go to for tomatillos, chiles and sopes. The food counter is small and they make fantastic authentic Mexican tacos, burritos, sopes and tortas. Prices are very reasonable. Bilingual staff are always friendly.
