My favorite Mexican Restaurant

I always enjoy the food here. The fajitas are really good. The menu offers a variety of choices. The service is very good also.

Almost feel bad about giving this restaurant only 3 stars because it was good but nothing really stood out. Chips and dip, food, drinks and service were all good, much like most other Mexican restaurants. However it is located in a small strip mall and the interior is kind of plain, nothing to really make it stand out. If you... More

The food is decent and service is ok. The place is very small so it gets overcrowded quick and is very loud. The shrimp tacos are good. The tamales are ok. The queso is really good. But overall it was an ok experience.

Overall unimpressed with the food. Ordered three of the authentic tacos. All three had a lack of flavor not often found with authentic Mexican food. Service was equally as bland, failure to get refills and lack of overall service leaves much to be desired. Perhaps there are items on the menu that are better, but it is doubtful I will... More

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
