Since we were traveling and have some good Mexican restaurants near where we live, we didn't know what to expect. However, my niece recommended it and she loves good food - so we went and thoroughly enjoyed it! The restaurant itself isn't something to visit for its ambiance. However, just because it's in market, don't be fooled- -because it has... More

I will try most anyplace "ONCE"....But this time I was very disappointed. It was like sitting inside a food truck in the parking lot. Menu is limited and for me not that tasty. Was not impressed with the overall cleanliness. Besides you are in the middle of a grocery store. Extremely basic. Will NOT go again.

below average Mexican food by Chicago standards, but who knows? Maybe around here this is the best you can get. Still, it's hard to bring myself to give this an above average rating. You can't drink beer with your food even if you buy it at the grocery store which is under the same management. Mexican food without beer is... More

Passing through on I-94, we scanned some reviews and found La Perla. It is great. They were busy but handled the volume well. The food was great! Very fresh. We had chicken adobado, tamales, and beef Mexicano.

This is our favorite little restaurant in Benton Harbor. This year is the 3rd visit we have made there in the last 2 years, as we live in Indiana. The food is delicious! Beware when you pull up, it looks a little sketchy as it is in a Mexican Supermarket~but I can assure you we have never had any issues,... More

My sister and I found this little gem a couple of years ago while staying in Benton Harbor, MI. Now any time we are back in Michigan, we HAVE to stop in. Nothing has change besides the prices have went up a little, but a family of three can still eat a huge meal for around $20. This restaurant is... More

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.
