Love this place. Anything on the menu is good. Margarita's are great too. Live music some nights. Outdoor seating great on good weather days.

This was a go-to spot for us for a long time. However, hings have changed. The prices continue to climb whereas the quality of the food has suffered. I mean, it's tortillas, beans, rice, and cheese for the most part. Why are you charging so much? I don't get it.

Better than average Mexican food. I enjoyed the atmosphere, love eating at the local places when I'm out of town. Lunch service was quick.

When on Amtrak I always notice the crowd at this restaurant when we go through downtown Hammond. Tonight we were in Hammond and decided to try it. We had a table outside by the fountain – great view of downtown, the live music was at the right level and the live oak behind us was lighted for the evening. Our... More

Seriously disappointed! I travel a lot and rely on this site to help select where we fine. The resturant was just average, at best...and overpriced for sure. My margarita was mostly mix. Salsa and pico was bland. Fajitas was just ok but not sliced well at all. Etc etc. I guess because Mexico was playing in the World Cup during... More

This restaurant tucked away in a shopping mall turned out to be a great surprise. The food we had was excellent. My wife said their chilie Reano (sp) was among the best she's ever had. They had a fresh salad of tomatoes, onions, cilantro and avocado that was very good. The wait staff was efficient and very friendly and the... More

Definitely the best Mexican restaurant in the area. There will be a crowd especially at lunch time on a pretty day. The outdoor dining is quite pleasant, an excellent place to relax and sip a Margehita. The food is really good as evidenced by the crowd.

We eat at LC a few times a month and always enjoy our meals. Sitting outside on a clear day sipping margerhitas is the best! The device is always quick and friendly but their prices normally run a little higher than other local places. The crowd noise inside is extremely loud most times also. Great place to just chill and... More
