We had an excellent waiter last time we visited. The food isn't bad and the place is always clean. Will go back.

Ate dinner here on a weekday night, service was slow but friendly. I ordered shrimp quesadilla, cheese dip and frozen margarita. The cheese dip was good, the margarita was pretty light, and the quesadilla was tasty but few shrimp. Decor was very dated, mostly local folks.

The food is typical Mexican fare and is reasonably priced. I have always enjoyed whatever dish that I've gotten. You won't leave hungry.

What you would expect from a Mexican restaurant in Kansas. It was good food, good prices, friendly and helpful staff. The Chimichangas and California Burrito were excellent and very large portions. You could have split between 2 people.

They need better communication with other staff members, also simple things like refills. The food is ok but nothing I would recommend any one. An update inside of the building would be nice just putting paint on top of the older paint is really not the way to go. One thing they do good is the margarita for a dollar... More

La Hacienda appears to be operated by immigrants, but maybe Kansas has caused them to forget how to make those northern Mexican and Tex-Mex favorites. It's hard to ruin guacamole, but my wife and I were served some that tasted like burnt rubber bands. The carnitas plate was otherwise OK, but no better than "average." Her spinach quesadilla was all... More

I ordered a taco meal w my hubby and what was brought to me was not tacos! I asked the waitress but she didnt understand and just smiled at me. Drinks never got refilled and the customer service at the checkout was horrible the staff was mean! I used to love this place but its changed for the worse.

Service was ok, but the food isn't inspired and pace of the meal can be slow. At times there can be a disconnect when the staff member waiting on you doesn't speak english well.

Stopped here for lunch when traveling between k-city and okc. Loved the white queso. Very good chips and salsa. Meal was good not great. Very worth the price we paid and it was a quick and a good stop.
