They cook the meat when you order it so you know it's freshly grilled, it's not sitting on some buffet line. Fresh ingredients, cheap prices, I'll take it! This is not for the "hoity-toity", it's in a supermarket.

Slightly off the beaten path, and you have to wait in line most of the time. Worth everything!! I always get the steak burrito. Love it! Authentic! They have expanded the eating area over the years. Yum!

I'm giving the food four stars. We have eaten here for lunch many times. I love the fish tacos. My husband has tried many selections and loved them also. I wouldn't eat here for dinner only because the atmosphere is lacking. It's in a grocery store.

Delicious, authentic Mexican food. The food is tasty, the portions are generous, and the service is great. Definitely check it out if you're in the area.

Excellent authentic Mexican food! We were spoiled after living in Texas for several years and enjoying great Mexican food. How lucky to find this place in our back yard! Their steak tacos are the best. We eat here often and have never had a bad meal. Plus you can eat your fill for less than $10. It is a grocery... More

The deserve the endless praise they receive! Unmatched quality and flavor. The burritos (beef tongue) and the tacos Mexicanos (steak) are to die for!! When you arrive and there is a line that wraps around the grocery section, stick around! It's worth it!

La Perla is a cafeteria inside a Mexican grocery store. There is no waitress service, instead you walk up to the counter, place your order, and they will bring the food to your table when it's ready. The Tacos Mexicanos are exactly the same as the ones I had in a Mexican grocery in Dallas, TX. Have no doubt this... More

Hopefully this review comes out right: La Perla isn't the sort of place that pokes its nose so high in the air it trips over its feet, with linen tablecloths, choice of napkin colors or even glass drinking glasses. Could you impress your date with a meal here? Well, that depends on your date, now doesn't it? I'd be impressed.... More

On the outside La Perla appears to be just a simple neighborhood Mercado, but once inside you will find an ample supply of goods and services to include the best kept secret of authentic Hispanic cuisine. I recommend the the taco mexicano or the carne asada burrito. What ever you choose, you won't be disappointed. To add compliment to great... More
