Love the #9 Mexican trio

They must have someone's grandma in the back making the tortillas because they taste that fresh and homemade. I like the variety of the three different meats, and the duo of sauces are what adds a real kick. Love the red one, it's super hot.

Their margaritas are to die for, the El-Heffe is the one can't get past & my wife loves the mango. it does not matter what you order from fish tacos to... More

Very disappointed with the lack of flavor with the beef enchiladas and refried beans. The enchilada sauce was thin and bland. I found the lunch specials overpriced. Margaritas were small. Service was extremely slow even though we were dining before rush crowd. Tap water tasted like it was from water hose. I did like the salsa and chips. Plenty of... More

Had the four specialty Mexican Tacos and they were all authentic flavor that I have experienced in parts o Mexico. The taco with the carrots was out of this world and the tongue taco was excellent in its own right. Prices are very reasonable. La Pagua is not to be confused with the Mexican-American flair found at many of (if... More

I was born and raised in Texas so when I review a Mexican Restaurant - it's tainted by that fact. You just can't beat Tex-Mex from restaurants like Ninfa's or The Original (Ft Worth). The problem with most Mexican restaurants in Louisiana is they have awful hot sauce or they use tasteless white cheese in their cheese enchiladas. La Paqua... More

Wow! I was surprised at how much I liked this restaurant! I went here because La Fonda's was closed (I love La Fonda) and I was delighted with my dinner! The avocado dip was delicious!! The pupusas were fabulous!! I ordered mine filled with beans and cheese, and what a comforting dish! Love this!! I also ordered the cheese enchilada... More

My husband and I are OBSESSED with Mexican cuisine! We are constantly trying new restaurants hoping to hit the culinary jackpot. La Pagua is it! This place is the real deal. The menu has something for everyone, from (what I would call) basic Mexican staples like nachos, fajitas, burritos, to authentic tacos (al pastor, barbacoa, lengua, etc.), huevos rancheros, and...

If you want a family owned/run/head chef type of mexican cuisine restaurant stop here. I feel as though it should be featured on the diners, drive ins and dives. I could see Guy Fieri back on the kitchen taping a show. I always get the enchiladas on my first visit to a mexican place. I rate them on that for... More

Tried one of the few Good Mexican eateries in Lafayette & was surprised at the quality & authentic Mexican dishes at this establishment Worth the stop should you be in the area. Not cheap but they make up in the portions & taste as this would be the final outcome when parting with $10+ for the average meal. This is... More
