Authentic good food

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.

Lived here and ate here regularly. Just visited kings beach again, and this is the first place we ate. Great, just like we remembered it!! So much more than Resturant, it's also a Mexican market including meat counter, produce, bakery, and tequila! This place is the full package.... No wonder it's such a locals hot spot :)

Best Mexican food on the island... I am going to go back for sure! I had the huevos rancheros... they where amazing. We also tried the Carne Asada tacos... again amazing! The horchata was also great! I tried the other Mexican restaurant in town and as well and it didn't compare. This place was simply THE BEST!

Wowza....We enjoyed some of the best food since my last visit to Mexico. Everything tasted fresh and authentic. We had a selection of burritos..that were to die for..and the homemade salsa...YUMMO!! This place was packed with people...and the lines were long...but it was well worth the wait.

Definitely not a tourist trap- try the nachos and wet burritos! Don't forget the homemade salsas, worth the trip from the beach (or even from Squaw!).

Best mexican food in the area. Good for take-out. There nachos are the best, plenty for two people to share. Have tried the burritos and other dishes and all have been delicious and freshly made. Every time I go to Kings Beach it's a must stop.

Decent Mexican food for the location. Plenty of selection including tacos, burritos and meals. The burritos were huge and < $8.

I've been eating at La Mex for 20 years and it is my favorite Mexican food north of the boarder. Their daily specials, fish tacos, and wet burritos are my favorites. Their fresh salsas are made with love...enjoy! There's nothing better than a Coke in a bottle and La Mex! This place is awesome and you can't go wrong with... More
