It has all the basics you expect: tacos, enchiladas, burritos, fajitas, queso, good salsa, and plenty of margaritas. It is family friendly and not expensive. The service is hit-and-miss as it can be good, but it can also be slow and indifferent. They have outdoor seating, and they have several tvs that often have soccer on the screen.

Gives other La Haciendas a bad name. This one has the worst Mexican food I have ever had. Even the salsa was bad. try the La Hacienda on Binford Blvd and you will see how good they are.

This place gives you a lot of food at a low price. But you pay for what you get, its not very good Mexican food and the service was just mediocre.

Had great service and food. King Chimichanga and Enchiladas Mexicana had generous portions of guacamole and sour cream. LARGE portions. Authentic flavor and service. Manager went WAY above and beyond when our dear old '96 volvo wouldn't start. Let a waiter jump us and we were on our way. THANK YOU La Hacienda.

We waited at our table for 15 minutes and were never even brought water. We left after that. Chips and salsa were good

Pretty basic Mexican fare served in a nice atmosphere. I have dined here many times and it is consistent and quick. Portions tend to be on the larger side. Every time I dine here, there are many families enjoying the restaurant. The Margarita's are outstanding

My husband and I LOVE mexican food, both authentic and tex-mex. This was trying to be authentic but was cheaply done and not very good. I dont think the meat was very quality. I had a combo plate with both ground beef and chicken. My husband had the stewed/shredded beef which he said tasted like chewy horse meat. The quac... More
