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

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.

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.
