Great Mexican food!

I've been eating at La Botana for many years. It's a family ran business with still some of the same faces that have been there since the beginning. The food is always good and service is pretty fast. There is a patio area to sit on, but we often eat inside. I love the chicken tortilla soup... read more

I would have never known about this place if it wasn't for a friend suggestion but it was worth it. Sometimes when a place is cheap you sacrifice on taste or portions. Neither was the case here. The food was excellent and the prices were cheap. Not to mention the great margaritas and sangria. The waitress was super nice and... More

Had some great Tex-Mex food here and the service was great. Read several reviews saying to the contrary, don't know what happened on their visit - but we stopped by on a Saturday around 3 pm. Everything was great!!

This is a neighborhood restaurant which we have frequented since its inception, perhaps 25+ years ago. We go at least once a week. Tonight we had Taco Salad, steak fajitas and pollo Texas. Each one was perfect, ss usual.

This was our first visit to this Tex-Mex Restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised with Juan's swift service. Our water was poured in a jiffy and the margarita was good. The homemade chips were delicious and the queso blanco dip with minced jalapenos was tasty. We ordered the Enchilada Rancheros and the Burrito de Chili Colorado. The two cheese enchiladas were...

This place is marginal at best. cjips tasted old and stale, and if I didn't know better, I'd say their salsa was Pace salsa out of a jar. Service was terrible. I had to flag down my waitress each time I wanted something. Like a drink. Or silverware. Or to order. Food took forever to come out, which is surprising... More

Fajitas to share and a pitcher of margaritas... almost a weekly event. You seat yourself when you walk in - service is typically good to very good. Classic tex-mex joint with a few more authentic dishes. Can be a bit loud at times, and Friday nights are by far the busiest time.

Food is average and service can be average or less than average. :-( Food can be inconsistent - but this place is busy. Fajita Tacos are good. The carne asada tacos are good.

I have been coming here for years. I really like the. Tacos de Carne Asada (Guadalajara style). Ask for fresh limes too! I also like the Fajitas Tacos (one steak and one chicken). Great margaritas - Texas!! Enjoy!
