We've been going to LaBotana since they opened many years ago. A wonderful, family run Tex-Mex restaurant. Good food, wonderful service. Love this place!

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!

This particular location has gone through several unsuccessful iterations before finally succeeding as La Botana, well over 10 years ago. It's family-run and has many long-term staff. It's a lot like Cheers - where everybody knows your name. There is no particular menu specialty -all of the menu items, especially the combinations, are well-prepared, tasty, generous, and moderately-priced. The place... More

Not pretentious, no particularly special menu items, but done well, quickly and with a smile. Great place for families with youngsters old enough to enter tin themselves with torts and salsa The place is always hopping and often has no parking available (Friday evenings)... but with good food, generous portions, and attentive service it is a favorite with its regulars...

This is a neighbor special restaurant. Our entire neighborhood frequents this wonderful restaurant. It is family run and we go at least 3 times a month. I like the taco salad and my husband always gets the pollo la botana. A great night out, close to home and with outside seating.

I can remember when La Botana first opened, decades ago, and am always glad to return for delicious margaritas, good food at good prices, and a very welcoming staff.

Good Mexican food, fast and cheap. Chips were warm and crispy with just enough salt. Salsa good. Big variety of items on the menu. Wishing I were there today, Mexican sounds good!

I'm local, work near here, and eat at La Botana maybe once a week. Had a great after work outing on the patio, in which several late comers showed up. Our server handled 11 people without issue, save for the occasional wait for a second drink. Rarely has service been less than prompt and attentive. This place does way more... More

Look, the writer in the last review whom rave about the best Mexican food yet, must have had 'Taco Bell' as their benchmark... so sad. This place is a 'Georgia' TexMex Place... that means it is a serious drop down from real Mexican food and a definite drop down from the restaurants near the towns and cities on the Mexican/USA...

La Botana atmosphere is similar to that of a sports bar with several televisions around and they are the focal point. Nonetheless, the restaurant is decorated with what appear to be authentic items of Mexican interest. Nevermind that it appears the restaurant is located in what once appears to have been a fast food restaurant. The focal point should be... More
