They are so good! I go all the time that they know me by name. You get your money's worth. Friendly staff and their margaritas are really good. Their fajita nachos and fajita quesadillas are amazing. I love this place! I can eat there everyday(if I can afford it.)

To get things starting off on the wrong foot, the waiter tried to be a little too cute with his English to Spanish kibitzing. Bottom line, however was that there was a total lack of communication. The Chili relleno which we were told was grilled, turned out to be battered and fried. When the mistake was discovered, the waiter was... More

There's better Mexican restaurants. The food is okay but not very flavorful. I ordered cheese enchiladas covered with pork tips. The pork was greasy and didn't taste fresh. It was nearly burned also. The sauce wasn't flavorful. It wasn't awful but not s reason for me to want to return here either. The prices aren't excessive, but they're high for... More

The food and service at LaHacienda is plentiful and top knotch. Took a friend for a birthday treat and was not disappointed. Had to have the pitcher of margaritas to go along with it. For good Mexican food, I'd recommend it anyday. Want to go back soon.

Beats the chains by a mile! Generous portions and cooked to order - they have even honored special requests for us by adding or deleting certain ingredients from our selections. The 2 for 1 margaritas are also the best - taste great and have a rewarding kick to them. You will be pleased after giving them a try!

I LOVE Mexican food!!! It is my absolute favorite, and I have had it in many different states (I find Mexican restaurants everywhere I go) but this is still the best I have ever had. The shrimp chimichungas are awesome!! The nachos with with steak, chicken, and shrimp are even better!!! But the magic here is the queso! I cannot... More

We eat here pretty often and really like it. The staff is great and the prices are very affordable. This is one of my favorite Mexican Restaurant. I normally get the Opelousas Choice which is very good. It is enough for me and my 12yr old daughter to share. We also like the atmosphere and normally don't have to wait... More

I think that they have ok food, nothing to brag about. Service is great and so is the price, but the flavor is lacking. Drive another 20 minutes to Carencro and eat at Picantes. Much better tasting food for comparable prices. This place is more of an upscale Taco Bell. Nothing more.

Good Mexican food and margaritas. Service was also good and very polite staff. I definitely recommend it if you're visiting Opelousas.
