had high expectations but food was "Americanized" and magaritas were all mix - Mazatlan is much better option for traditional Mexican fare

Plenty of free parking greets you as you enter the restaurant parking lot. (The restaurant sits on a front corner lot of the old Mankato mall. Don't let the large empty lot deter you from going.) The interior of the restaurant is stylish, clean, and very comfortable. Modern, Mexican décor with a metal sun sculpture greets you on the wall... More

Love this place. Will go again and again. Food and atmosphere are wonderful and the place is spotless. The Service is wonderful and guests are very well attended. Margaritas are so yummy. The pork and beef and chicken and salmon were all perfect. The menu is huge but our group loved it all.

We stopped at La Terraza a couple of days ago, although we hadn't planned on it...just a whim. So glad we did. From the moment we stepped out of the car, we were impressed. The building itself is beautiful inside and out, but, of course, it's the food that we were wondering about. Imagine being greeted by the aroma of... More

I found the food to be excellent and the prices very reasonable! The atmosphere was great. The prices were what I liked best, there was nothing that I can say I didn't like! The service was also excellent!

We have been twice to be sure wasn't a fluke. Service was excellent both visits. We sat outside; they have a beautiful patio! All 3 of us had very good food. I would recommend as one of the Mexican food places to stop in Mankato MN.

We waited months for this place to open. When it finally did I was not disappointed. I will never go to any other sit down Mexican place.
