The food at La Botana is delicious and spicy. It is an authentic experience. The chips and salsa are unlimited and they hit the spot. They got my order wrong the last time I went but the food was still great, and they made sure to correct the mistake.

We celebrated my birthday there it was awesome, I ordered chicken fajitas which were the best I have ever tried. The place is small but cozy, we enjoyed playing the jukebox as we all enjoyed our delicious House Specialties. Fajitas there are now my must haves so we will be back before you know it.

I visited with my family this weekend and the place was jammed packed, it was well worth the wait. They have the best Fajitas ever with the homemade corn tortillas it was a big plus. The place was clean, the atmosphere was enjoying, and the service was pretty fast. I would recommend this restaurant to everybody, it doesn't get more... More
