We were seated quickly early on a Saturday night (5PM or so). Our drinks were delivered, but then we waited and waited for someone to take our dinner order. The waiter who took our drink order finally returned 15 or more minutes later after we kept looking in his direction. He was surprised that someone else had not taken our... More

This is our favorite restaurant. The food is always great! The best Mexican food in the Quad Cities is here. Prices are a great value. The salsa and guacamole are delicious! The atmosphere is wonderful!

We eat at LaFlama at least one every two weeks. The salsa is made fresh and it is wonderful. Their lunch special (offered 7 days a week) is a great value. You can't go wrong. The chicken tacos are great as well as the beans and rice. We have always had wonderful service. Try the Fideos soup but you can... More

Family bday celebrations here with a group of 10...The waitress did very well accommodating all of us. Food was great, margaritas were great. The restaurant was FREEZING but it was cold outside that night also. I've had meals here before but didn't think they were anything special. The most recent was really good and i would definitely go back. Chicken... More

We were there for an early dinner, and were greeted by a friendly server, and took a table by the window. The chips and plentiful salsa were a great starter. My husband decided on two tacos and a beef enchilada, while I opted for the Thursday special, enchiladas suizas. Both were delicious, and the accompanying beans and rice were tasty.... More

The gals from work like to go here for lunch. The service is quick, the lunch specials are cheap, and the food is always yummy. Their Margarita specials in the evening are also great, very delicious drinks.

Not the best Mexican food in the QC. I felt it was a bit pricey and the food was a little "dry". The free chips and salsa are a plus but not all that unusual for a local Mexican restaurant.

Have eaten at many, many mexican restraunts all over the united states and mexico. We moved away from the area a year ago. I was excited to go back and in a week ate 3 times at this restraunt. Love the authentic, deliciously seasoned menu items at La Flama. Have eaten here many times and always a fantastic meal. Service... More

If you are a fan of authentic Mexican food, I would not recommend this place. The chips were thick and stale-ish, the chorizo bean dip tasted like it was out of a can with mild chorizo on top. I will say that the chicken out if the mole enchiladas we got was good, but it was smothered in waaaaaaay too... More

I can only comment on the Fajitas; we had spicy chicken but it was wonderful. Not so spicy hot you couldn't enjoy it but too spicy for those who prefer bland foods. The wait staff was very nice and efficient. Our local friends were very satisfied with other menu items but my wife and I had enough to share our... More
